A very important hippy ancient Maya site. Stay on the island when in Flores. The town is a bit rough. Tikal is beautiful, make sure you go out into the jungles where you can see so many monkeys! The grass is top quality there too. But sometimes climbing those pyramids can be a bit of a scary experience, especially when remembering that they were built extra steep just so when you were thrown down the steps you weren't going to stop till you hit the bottom!"

Posted by Dick on 2005-06-19 04:35:28 My Score: Don't miss Tikal if you go to Guate. Some of the smaller pyramids are still available to clime by steps. The larger ones, those that are still open to the public, have a very flimsy system of ladder/steps that are even steeper than the pyramid steps with platforms every 12 feet or so up the ladder system. Well worth the climb and if you're there, and you don't climb it, what a gyp so climb it!
