Tikal (Tik’al in modern Mayan orthography) is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centres of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now northern Guatemala
Tikal (Guatemala) - Look familiar? Tikal was used as the location of the rebel base in Star Wars. However, it's pretty impressive in its own right. I lived in Guatemala for a few years as a child, but didn't have a chance to go. I'd like to rectify that some day.
