Tikal National Park in Northern Guatemala is the largest excavated archaeological city from the Maya civilization and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We climbed temples that rose over 70 meters and unexpectedly found ourselves face to face with monkeys and other rain forest wildlife. View photo gallery.
The latest High Definition video from Jason and Aracely at TwoBackpackers.com features my favorite Mayan ruins – Tikal in Guatemala. It looks like they had mistier weather than I did, however the video certainly captures what it feels like to be there – climbing the ruins and the rickety staircase up Temple 4, which actually looks like a newer version of the one I used (below).
One of my favorite aspects of Tikal is the abundance of wildlife, especially the colorful tropical birds. While I was there in 2006, I still had an old 35mm film camera, so my best attempts at bird photography left much to be desired.
