Tikal, One of the major Maya Sites, Very well preserved and many of the buildings remain touched by excavations. Those that are including in the acropolis are fantastic. The temple of the Jaguar and its sister are featured in the opening footage to Star Wars. In other words it is out of this world. It is only rivaled by the other major sites such as Copan, small sites in the same area but still in Belize can be found easily and very close or in San Ignacio such as Xunantunich, or Cahal Pech. Having worked on excavations with University of Trent, SMU and SWT at the latter two sites Tikal has unforgettable features. Look for remnants of the pigment used to color the site in the lower plazas and be sure to take a lager memory card or lots of film.
