Ancient Cities - Tikal, Guatemala

Back to Map 

Visited: Late Sep

Probably the most atmospheric of the Mayan cities, especially at dawn and dusk. Set far from major settlements in an expansive forest there's plenty of wildlife, including toucans. The site is fairly large and it's interesting to compare restored areas with sections still covered by jungle.
