Got up early to visit the Mayan ruins at Tikal National Park, arrived at the park at 6.00 am.  It was really quiet when we got there and we decided to head straight for Temple IV (the highest temple in the park), on route through the jungle we could hear howler monkeys, they make sounds like we have never heard before, and we spotted some spider monkeys and a tapir.

We climbed temple IV and the view from the top was amazing, we stayed there for a while taking in the atmosphere of the jungle and other temples that you can see from IV.

Spent half of the day wondering around the park and checking out the other temples and Ruins.  We both tried to climb temple V, but only Ren was successful, Emily was to scared of the ladder that you climb to get to the top and only got 3/4 of the way up.
