Architecture Puzzler #465

Three of the most interesting archeological sites in Central and South America are the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon near Mexico City, Tikal in Guatemala, and Machu Picchu in Peru. I have visited them all, and while each is spectacular in its own way, my personal favorites, in order, are Machu Picchu, Tikal, then the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon. This is not the order in which they were constructed, however. Which is the oldest and which is the youngest site?
