The Tikal National Park is not only one of the most spectacular places in Guatemala; it is also a key site of the Mayan civilisation. The heart of its culture. Inside the park, you'll find the Visitors' Centre and the Lítica Museum, opened to the public in 1989 and a real must for all visitors to the park: it is home to 26 invaluable, stone-carved steles representing various historical events and the different dynasties that ruled here from the Early Classic to the Late Classic period. In addition, other key aspects of Mayan culture can be explored here through various etchings and sculptures that are unique to this collection. Don't miss the embossed map that explains the reconstruction of Tikal over one thousand years ago on a scale of 1:25. Impressive!
