TIKAL

The Tikal National Park, located in the Peten region in northern Guatemala, contains some of the most fascinating archeological remains of the ancient Maya civilization. Tikal remained a mystery for centuries, after being abruptly abandoned by the Maya over 1000 years ago and overgrown by a relentless jungle. Only a legend survived among the Indians of a lost city, where their ancestors had achieved a high cultural development. Tikal was excavated by Pennsylvania University between 1956 and 1969, unveiling more wonders than can be imagined.
