My wife and I are planning a single day for ruin exploring and have been doing a lot of reading about Tikal and Caracol. They both sound great but I am looking for advice and opinions on advantages and disadvantages between the two. We will be staying in San Ignacio the night before and the night of our ruin trip.
I understand that the road to Caracol is rough and about a two hour drive. How does that compare to travel to Tikal? Are there things to see/do along the way for either destination and would there generally be time to stop?
Thanks in advance for everyone's help.
