... 100 other tourists who had already taken their seats on the top of the temple, high powered cameras in hand. Unfortunately for them, the mist did not lift and the group of disappointed tourists moved on. Jen and I decided to stay on the temple a bit longer and enjoy the sounds of the jungle after the hum of the tour bus tourist had dissipated.

We got everything booked up and had an early supper as we were due to be picked up at 3am the following morning. We really questioned the wisdom of this idea at 2.30am when the alarm went off, but once we made it to Tikal, about an hour and a half away by a safe, seatbelt-equipped, well-driven and robust mini-bus, we knew it was going to be a bit special. Still pitch-black, we walked for ...
