  1. Tikal was by far the most impressive temple I visited in the Yucatán area – it doesn’t just feel like being a “tidily dug out archeological site presented on a silver platter” for tourists to see. Especially the walking up of the jungle (howler monkeys going nuts) was an awesome experience -> Get there before sunrise! Have to return there someday and visit El Mirador.
