Showcasing the ingenuity of the Maya, Tikal is one of few places declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for both its historic and natural importance. The largest excavated site in the Americas at over 350km2, it’s impressive stonework is surrounded by a dense canopy of Guatemalan jungle. With a considerable portion of its 3,000 structures still unexplored, it would likely take several days to uncover all of Tikal’s secrets. Ranging from ceremonial temples to colossal pyramids, it’s incredible to think as many as 90,000 people once called this city their home.
This is dry season in Guatemala, with average daytime temperatures usually between 28-30°C. Bearing in mind Tikal’s location in the lowlands of Guatemala, there is always the possibility of encountering a few showers at any time of year.
