Tikal - my most amazing place
Rising out of the jungle mist, the ruined temples of Tikal, Guatemala, take you to another time, another world.
Back to the ancient civilisation of the Maya, where this huge city complex, with wide paved roads and sophisticated water systems, developed alongside human sacrifice and city-state warfare.
Watching the sun rise, listening to the sounds of the howler monkeys and sunrise from the top of Temple IV - it makes Tikal my most amazing place.
