Okay so Tikal is amazing but rediculously expencive and not the most outdoor place to camp because it's by all the main buildings and a generator going until about 10pm however I believe taking the sunrise tour from anywhere other than sleeping there you will get to temple 4 late, so the cheapest way to camp is at the camp ground across from the Jaguare Inn through a big field lit with fireflys in the night, great little cabanas to keep you dry and if you wake at 3:30 your tour will be the only people to actually be on temple 4 for the amazing jungle awakening, sunrise in rainy season is misty and bland but the wildlife is worth it.... So camping is okay, two day max in my opinion, 50Q per person and if you don't have a tent 85Q per person for a misquito net hammock totally comfy and sleepable! Your allowed fire to cook food but good luck!!! I reccomend to a budget backpacker bring PB and J and breakfast bars because fires are almost impossible to light with jungle wood and just not a practical way to cook, Jaguare inn, like their unfortunate camping situation is not very good, camping is horrid there, te campground you want is Across the street but food there is so expencive!!!!!!! So plan this trip but camping is highly recommended, it will just be a little rough!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At 70q a night for a tent, this is by far the most affordable option within the Tikal park. Hard to reserve in advance, but show up early and ask for the campground. ... more less
