Explore one of the most important centers of the Mayan civilization at Tikal. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1979, the ancient Mayan city was inhabited from 6th century BC to the 10th century. On a tour of the park, you can view thousands of ancient ruins sprawled across the verdant jungle. Hike the tropical forest trails in between the grand ruins. In addition to culture, pay attention to the natural gems here too--you'll pass through a canopy of lush green trees inhabited by howler monkeys, toucans, coatimundis, and other jungle creatures.

Beautiful monuments in the middle of the forest. That is something to know that people have been able to dream and build such a city!!!
