August 2008, Spider monkey, Tikal, Guatemala.
A road trip through the rainforest took the Hockley's to the large Mayan temple site of Tikal. "The ruins and temples were truly as spectacular and astonishing as they had promised be," Catherine Hockley wrote. "And even the horribly early sunrise viewing after an even more horrible billion vertical step climb up to the top of temple 5, was completely satisfying (even without coffee)."
