We had an extra day in the Cayo, but not enough time to go to Tikal, so we decided to try El Pilar. It was definitely worth the bumpy ride and the cost of our guide to wander around the partially exposed ruins and explore the history and the ethno-botany of the site. We didn't have a way of getting there, so we contacted the guide (Teddy Waight) who is mentioned in Lonely Planet as someone who will show you around El Pilar. He was great!
