Photographer's Note

Temple # 1 in Tikal is also called Gran Jaguar. The archeological site in the middle of the Peten Jungle, by the Mayan Biosphere Reserve. The visit to Tikal leaves a powerful mark on the traveler, and the size of the constructions is certainly impressive. Gran Jaguar stands at around 45 meters, while Temple V, from where I took this picture, is around 60 meters tall. Climbing up the small wooden steps set there by the park administration is a scary experience (particularly on the way down, as mi amigo chileno Christian knows).
