“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Worth visiting all the main temples, but this included was spectacular. Great views. Pack lots of water it gets very hot! Drinks on sight are over priced so be prepared. Didn't do the sunrise to save money but heard it was fantastic

“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This is part of a huge complex of pyramids at Tikal. The whole complex is worth seeing. There is a tonne of wildlife to see. We saw monkeys, Toucans and coati mundi here!!
The temples themselves are in pretty good shape - great for pictures!!!
Bring Sunblock, hat and water ++ - Its Damn hot here.
Bugspray is a must - you are in the Jungle!
Climb the ruins that you can still climb! The Views are spectacular!

“So worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I got to the top and it was AMAZING!!! Don't let the 196 steps get in the way of the best views. It wouldn't have been the same if you didn't climb to the top. There were even senior citizens that braved the stairs and you are rewarded!

“Truly spectacular views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Great place to start your tour early morning. Amazing views. Worth the climb. They offer also sunrise tours at 04.00 hours, and this I will do at my next visit...
