An undiscovered gem: The pyramids of Tikal
Here's what one American had to say about the place. "I saw the Pyramids [in Egypt] ... This is better, because you can go on top of them, and see what they saw." The best part is that they're in the middle of the jungle. Yes, that does make it harder to get to the place, but once you're there, it feels like you've traveled back in time 3,000 years. There's also authentic Mayan rituals performed every once in a while, since the government opened the national park to Mayans in 1996.
