My alarm went off at 0500.. I felt myself awake in a panic.. Time for work!? Nope..whew.. Just hiking some more Mayan ruins. 😎
Yesterday, I had scheduled a collectivo to pick me up from the Hotel at 0530. It’s recommend that you explore Tikal in the early morning, when the temperature is still cool and you can photograph the sunrise from some of the tall ruins above the forest canopy. Well, it was raining this morning.. and it would turn out to rain nearly ALL day. I wasn’t about to be turned back, so I spent the next 6 hours hiking around Tikal in the rain. Add in the fact that it was Sunday and this place was nearly empty. I spotted less than a dozen people all day.. it was a big change from the busy park of Palenque.
A ton of photos from the park: They came out kinda crappy since it was raining all day.
I was back at my hotel by 1300 and took a nice afternoon siesta
A few photos from the place:
