I loved this park! The toucans, the other animals that look like racoons, the turkeys, the howler and spider monkeys, so amazing! Plus the ruins and seeing the sunset and seeing the milky way, just wow!

I’ve visited many Mayan ruins and Tikal is probably my favourite. I liked the fact that when we visited it was very quiet and it felt like we had thenoark to ourselves. We basically only visited Temple 4, the Lost World, and the Grand Plaza...More

The morning was the most gorgeous (and least hot) time. We highly recommend staying over at a hotel in the park to experience a sunset and a sunrise. Not that you can actually see the sun but it’s when the animals are most active and...More
