We saw all the Temples, I-IV, and had the opportunity to climb 2. Breathtaking views, lots of history, and learning about the Mayan culture, which still exists was very interesting.
Beautiful view of the jungle and some of the other temples of Tikal on the side for sunrise, and a terrific view of the sun (unobstructed as it sets) from the other side.

Omar (Elmer) Alvarado gives great tours of Tikal Mayan ruins, the temples, pyramids, trees, animals, sights, sounds of the jungle.
A climb to the top (on safe, wooden stairs) provides a panoramic view of the Grand Plaza, with Temple 1 at the centre and Acropolis North and Central on either side.

This is a most interesting complex principally centered around The Great Pyramid (partially excavated and restored) which you can climb to view the sunset.
We loved the views from up there as we got an amazing perspective of all Tikal.

Ruinas de Uaxactun Flores 0.6 km away
#1 of 5 Sights & Landmarks in Flores
Climbing up the temples was fine, the views over the forest to other temples soaring above the treetops was amazing.
Been in Uaxactun is amazing bcos you hiring a tour guide you get to undertand more about the maya preclasic period wich is something that tourguids dont talk about when hiking in clasic mayan sites.
