SIGHTINGS

A storied past in Guatemala

Tikal was the main cultual and population center of the Mayan empire, which flourished for two thousand years in the remote jungles of Guatemala, southern Mexico and northern Honduras. At the height of its development around 800AD, Tikal and surrounding areas had a thriving population of over 120,000 people. The central ruins, populated mostly by the aristocrat class, included several huge temples, the tallest of which stands over 220 feet tall. Tikal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
