Best things to do in Peten and sightseeing in Peten
Tikal National Park - Peten
Tikal - Peten
Once the centre of one of the greatest civilizations in the Americas, the collapse of the sprawling Mayan empire of Tikal left a grand, abandoned city of towering pyramids, temples and court buildings in Guatemala's northern Peten district. It's one of the greatest and most striking collections of ancient monuments in the world, and rates as THE must-see attraction in the country.
