Tikal was the capital of one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya civilization. The development of this area started around the 4th century BC and extended to reach its apogee in the Classic Period, from 200 to 900 CE.
The end of Tikal is associated with a gradual population decline, culminating with its abandonment by the end of the 10th century.
Traveling and staying in Tikal is like living in another era, almost as if the world had something hidden that started to display to us in a mysterious way, influencing our perception and our understanding of the roots of the human civilization as we know it now. It is an experience that occupies a space in our memory and will live with us for quite a long time.
