Guatemala's tropical lowlands team with bright parrots, toucans, anteaters, tapirs, and howler monkeys distinguished​ by strikingly wild cries hovering over the forests. This wilderness is also home to nearly 3,000 ancient Mayan pyramid-like temples and palaces which should be explored by every traveler coming to Guatemala. The best panoramas can be seen from the summits of the pyramids. Temple 4 is one of the most prominent as it overlooks some surrounding pyramids poking above the trees. The dry seas​on between November and April is the best time to climb these Mayan structures.
