Picture Postcard – Tikal Guatemala
The Mayan civilization continues to enthrall visitors hundreds of years after they abandoned great cities such as Tikal in Guatemala.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tikal was once the capital of a very powerful Mayan kingdom. As a National Park, it has many areas excavated with on-going work visible to the public. It is well-served by public transport and tour companies in both Guatemala and neighboring Belize.
