2-Guatemala: Tikal

We went to see the Mayan ruins in Tikal, Guatemala. They told us that Tikal is the largest Mayan ruin site in the world. Who knows if that is actually true but it was amazing. Here is a picture of Bo and me on one pyramid looking back to another.

Here I am on top of a flat pyramid.

Temple # 5 was the steepest. There were 104 steps that you had to climb like a ladder so that you wouldn't fall. It was pretty scary but the view from on top was worth it.

Here we are on top of Temple #5.

There were over 10 big pyramids and tons more that they don't have money to uncover. Basically, every hill has a temple underneath it.

This is the vip-line tour we went on through the jungle. It was a lot of fun and I screamed a lot.
