  • Magical, mystery place. (Sorry for the plagiarism.) If you like history, like to go back in time this place is a must. Trust me: no pictures, videos, movies, presentations would do justice. You must see the real thing AND take your time to enjoy it. Listen to the fascinating stories, take real close looks, walk on the paths our mysterious ancestors walked. Do not rush. One full day is a minimum.
  • Visited with some friends. I recommend it. Excellent place to visit.
  • Magical place! Much less visited than Tikal. Road in bad shape. Still it is worth going.
  • In addition to the ruins at Tikal, we saw a wide variety of wildlife. Liked that you could get a guide or not. Trails were reasonably well marked. I downloaded an offline Google map and used that to help navigate
  • Tikal was beautiful even in the rain. Park itself costs 150Q to get in.
