Tikal Ruins and pyramids, Guatemala


Adventure Holidays to Tikal

Tikal, an ancient Mayan ruin hidden deep in the Guatamalan jungle, is very impressive as it rises out of the wilderness. One of the major cultural and population centers of the Maya civilization, monumental architecture at the site dates to the 4th-century BC. Tikal was at its height from 200 AD to 850 AD, during which time the site dominated the Maya region politically, economically, and militarily while interacting with areas throughout Mesoamerica, such as central Mexican center of Teotihuacan.
