Its actually hard to describe Tikal- it is massive, ancient, beautiful, and mysterious. We walked around it all day looking at ruins, watching wildlife (monkeys and birds and one bat!) and felt like we could have spent days more. Of course, only a fraction of the city is even unearthed- and much probably never will be. Once again, our weather was perfect, and nearly bug-free because of going in December. The park was also not crowded at all, so we took as long as we wanted climbing the ruins and taking pictures.
