Tikal is the best of the mask trilogy, but you could try one of the other games in the series:

Two players is a tough requirement.....

I would go with Attika.

In Tikal you explore tiles, use action points, and build vertically.
In Attika you draw cards, build horizontally, and place new tiles.

In Tikal you win be scoring; Attika is more of a race game.

The game that comes to mind for me is Reef Encounter.

Torres, considered the fourth of the Mask Series is great with 2 players. Java is excellent with 2 players. Mexica is decent with 2 players.

Tikal is only good with 4 players. To me, this is the biggest downfall of this game because I rarely get to play it.

One more option, Bison. Great with 2 players! Tile placement with area control.

The game Taluva might interest you. It is also visually stunning on the table, plays great with two, and has interesting tile placement and strategic token placement.

The two player variant here at BGG is a good way to play Tikal with only 2. It's how we play. Rahdo does a run through using the variant.

And I agree, Bison is great at 2, and it's easy to find and cheap when you do normally.
