Tikal is wroth the visit even if you aren't into ruins. Like someone seeing the Nutcracker even if they aren't into ballet. It's extraordinary. As far as safety goes, it's been dicey for a while and getting worse. Someone was actually killed there last week, so it's time to rethink Tikal visit until security is worked out. Check again closer to your visit.
Otherwise, Lamanai ruins trip is wonderful for both the ruins and the wildlife.
