Tikal, Guatemala.

Seeing the Mayan remains in Tikal, Guatemala was an incredible site.  We hiked back through the grounds and climbed some of the towers.  What the Mayans built with human power and a whole lot of faith was unbelievable.  Apparently the ruins continue on underground quite a ways and there is much more to be excavated.

The stairways were very steep.

We saw a nice sized tarantula.

The slate where heads were chopped off… yikes.  The Mayans definitely liked to “sacrifice” people.

Tikal is beautiful and historical.  It was remarkable touching history and imaging what it used to be like back in the day.
