  Tikal, Temple I
by chrisvandenbroucke

This is Temple I in the Plaza Mayor, inaccessible because it's too dangerous

You should visit the Parque early in the morning. From 10 am onwards it's too crowded with buses Americans, Japanese...

Book a trip the day before for 15 Q with a minibus. They wake you at 4 am, you can drink a coffee (2 Q) at the entrance of the parc, pay the fee (30 Q) and visit the Ruinas by foot.

Pass the Plaza Mayor go straight to Temple IV. Don't be afraid to climb the easy ropes and the rocks because the view upstairs will be splendid.
