Photographer's Note

Tikal is Guatemala premier tourist attraction, and probably the finest example of Mayan architecture. Tikal is a huge complex of 6 major temples (pyramids around 50-60 meters high) and lots of other buildings located in a fascinating, jungle-surrounded setting. The ruins date back to 6th-9th century.

Some of the temples can be climbed - it is a very tough hike, but the views from the top are splendid. To see everything at Tikal you need at least a whole day. There are only a couple of relativly expensive places to stay at Tikal, but you can opt to stay in Flores and visit Tikal on a daytrip.
