My roommates and I referred to Tikal (the official name for the Mayan ruins) as “McMaya World” because by the end of our day there, the park was so crowded you had to wait in line for a chance to climb up the ruins. The site had guards, flush toilets and snack shacks that sold coca-cola, chips and sandwiches. Yup, in the middle of a National Park and an hour away from the nearest town. Crazy, huh?
