Guatemala, Tikal, 26 Nov 2011

Short ride 62km from Santa Elena to Tikal which must have been the Maya equivalent to the Vatican. The pyramids are different again from Uxmal and Chichen Itza and being built of limestone are slowly crumbling. The site is located on top of a hill and is covered in dense tropical jungle though in its heyday the area would have been cleared and must have been an awe inspiring sight to the local people.

  1. Great photos! Can’t wait to see Tikal for myself one day! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m loving it! The breakfasts, the trees, mountains, the people, the ruins, the streets, the skies, all very nice, Mr. Desmond! Keep the faith– and the trail!
