Tikal and the Howler Monkeys

Wonderful detail in Antigua
Wonderful detail in Antigua
Up early and picked up at 7:30 AM at our hotel for out tour to Tikal. Our driver picked us up in a very nice shuttle van complete with air-conditioning. We went to the Flores airport to pick up two more people for the tour. We enjoyed a beautiful drive to Tikal. Our guide, Aguilino Martinez, was so informative! He was full of knowledge about the history and the ruins. Tikal was amazing! We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, and birds that build interesting pendulum-like nests. We also saw leaf-cutter ants, and a coatamundi – a raccoon-like animal. The howler monkeys put on quite the loud show for us!

We climbed to the top of some of the pyramids of Tikal – What an amazing view! Afterwards, we ate lunch in the park and returned to our hotel for a dip in the pool. We walked over the causeway that connects Santa Elena to Flores, where we had dinner overlooking the lake. We watched the sun set while downing some delicious daquiries and pina coladas.
