We wandered around the ruins for hours and it was so easy to imagine being the first people to rediscover the buildings after they were lost in the thick jungle for hundreds of years. The area that the city covered was huge and the pyramids and temples were massive and so impressive. We climbed up some of the temples to look over the treetops at the other tall, ancient buildings soaring 70m into the air and just peaking through the foliage. The whole experience is almost indescribable and left us in awe at the ability of the ancient Mayans to produce the amazing buildings of Tikal.
