It is breathtaking all the beautiful pyramids and ancient buildings in the middle of the Caribbean jungle. Very genuine experience with lots of culture and history. The Park is very well kept. There is a canopy zip line attraction as you arrive at the park. Bring lots of drinking water and wear hot weather clothing, you will need it. Also...

We walked up to Francesco who was in-charge of the camping ground and asked if we could stay in tents of Hammocks for the evening. We opted for the hammocks at 90Q pp and it was totally worth it. Francesco sets of the hammocks and bug nets for you and you can sleep under a hut to shelter you in...

One of the coolest experiences in this park are the howling monkeys. Unfortunately, they only come out at nightfall! So if you would like to increase your chances of hearing these lion - like howling animals, you should plan for visiting the park in the afternoon. In average takes 4 hours to see the sites, so if you start at...

The accommodations are very basic- a covered concrete patio to keep you dry and bathrooms, but if you want to experience the sounds of the jungle and get early entrance into the park, this is the way to go.

We opted for the sunset tour which was quite good. We left Flores via shuttle at noon and got to Tikal by 2 PM ( van made several stops). We had a tour guide Abel who was quite knowledgeable but talked too much that it was difficult to fully comprehend the history. It was very hot and humid so bring...

This national park is a discovery and the history is fantastic. Take a guided tour to understand the site and the Mayan culture , temples and the background if thus magnificent site. Simply astonishing! I visited the park in December 2008 or 2009

TLDR; Unforgettable digs for the night. Dont hesitate about bringing your geat, there is a "secure" place to store your stuff. And it's cheaper than anything else in the area. Inns/comedors have so-so (price and quality) food and sporadic Wifi. Stay and you wont regret it. My wife and I slept in side-by-side hammocks for our one night in Tikal....

Me and my friends booked sunrise welcome trip to Tikal. Although the trip started at 3am but it worth without hesitation! Tikal is absolute must to see in Guatemala. It´s so magical to sit on the highest ruin and and listen to all jungle voices waking up. Then seeing all the temples was stunning!

We camped in Tikal National Park as part of a group tour. The tents were clean and waterproof which came in handy for the nightly downpour! The restaurant nearby was overpriced for very average food and the wifi was average at best, however despite saying the wifi went until 9pm, we were able to get coverage in the tents all...

This is really worth the trip. Fascinating history and incredible views. I'd recommend getting a guide. The area is large and it would be very easy to miss some important sites without even knowing it. If you are driving over from Belize make sure you get all your paperwork from your rental car company in advance. They will want an...
