Hot jungles and steamy nights characterize the port named after Guatemala's national bird. Brilliantly colored clothing bedecks friendly villagers who love to show off their coffee plantations, jungle safaris, and deep-sea fishing spots. Easy access draws many to Tikal National Park, a wonderland of Mayan culture. A series of stone temples dating back to 700 AD--including the Temple of the Two-Headed Snakes--stretch above the treetops, daring the fearless to climb up and enjoy the views. From the top, the people and howler monkeys below look as tiny as the chirping tree frogs and legions of leaf-cutter ants.
