When we were in Guatemala this March I would have loved to have gone to Tikal, but it is just too remote even if you flew there, you still wouldn't have enough time to visit in a port day. I think it is remarkable! Lucky Ray and Helen the world travelers, keepposting these pics, They're great!
Tikal is an enchanting place, with magnificent temples, the music of birds punctuated with the howls of monkeys, and the fresh smell of rainforest permeating each breath of air you take. Once the largest Mayan city in the world, Tikal is now the site of ruined temples, pyramids, stelae, and other stone structures. 30% of the ruins have been uncovered and partially or completely restored. The remaining 70% lie under layers of dirt and shrubs and trees, where they will be preseved well for the centuries to come; the presence of these hidden ruins is betrayed by the geometrically perfect shapes of Tikal's many hills
