Tikal Stories and Tips

Surrounding Area

If you have time and are able, you might want to drive around the area surrounding the ruins. If you are lucky, as we were, you will get a glimpse of what life is really like in Guatemala.

We saw womaen carrying water in containers on theirs heads, as well as washing their clothes on wooden platforms built into a lake. The experience of seeing the countryside and and a bit of local life was just as exciting and interesting as seeing and experiencing the ruins.
