Tikal – “The place of the spirit voices”

Tikal National Park, Petén, Guatemala, Central America

Tikal is the largest excavated Maya site in the Americas and once was one of the greatest and most prominent cities in all of the Maya world. Besides general sightseeing, of interest to me during my recent visit in September, was to get to know more about the advanced technologies and sophisticated infrastructure which could be found in Tikal in its heyday. I was also interested in learning more about the reasons for the eventual collapse of this advanced civilization.
