You are really going to enjoy Tikal. If possible request Berta Zepeda for your guide...she is a walking encyclopedia of Mayan culture. They also serve a great lunch that comes with the tour.
Bring water and light clothes. Impossible to see in one day. I stayed in town at a nice hotel right on the water. Prices were very reasonable w/pool AC and extremely friendly staff. Enjoy!!
If you call and get Berta she can arrange comfortable and personable transportation for you. Tropic Air takes you to the closet town and that un-named hotel is very close. Sorry I can't remember the name....senior moments are ganging up one me.
I'd send a photo of the hotel but have problems posting photos and short films on the website.
