For me this was the best bit of Tikal. I am energy sensitive and this part of Tikal and particularly around the Gran Pyramide has a special energy which is worth basking in for a while, if the bugs let you.

Tikal exemplifies all the adjectives one can muster; awesome, amazing, spectacular; incredible. The park will leave you wondering how the heck did the ancient Mayan civilizations just vanish. There are numerous uncovered temples and plazas that give you just a small glimpse into what was...More
