We will be posting our thoughts on Tikal park and the Tikal Mayan ruins very soon…
For now, we’re just posting some of our favorite pictures.
In 2 days, we took over 130 photos of the amazing ruins at Tikal.
Suffice it to say that we loved our visit to the Mayan Ruins in Tikal, Guatemala and will have more to say (in this post) soon.
For now, we hope you enjoy the visuals from a place that is being restored… a city that is over 1,000 years old and is being dug out of the jungle so that it will be preserved in it’s best state for future generations.
You can see me in this picture next to the watermark. Gives you an idea of the sheer size of this temple.
What good would a Mayan temple be without a few sacrificial virgins?

Effective sleeping on a night bus from Guatemala City to Tikal (7 hours on a bus)

I shall call him Big Face
Can you see Carrie?
Lots of monkeys in the park. Pretty awesome to see them swinging from the trees! Just be forewarned that they’re used to people and can pee on you if they’re in the right mood and given the opportunity.
How many Mayan steps can you run in less than 10 seconds (timer on my camera)?
Lots of wild turkeys
Really Nifty bugs
