Once we realized how safe Belize really was, then maybe, just maybe, Guatemala would be okay too. Join me as I adventure into the jungle and explore Flores and Tikal.

I have been visiting Tikal for 8 years. I know the owners of the hotels and restaurants. I know the guides and the drivers, and really how to get around.

We took a wonderful 1-day trip to Tikal from mainland Belize. It was one of the most incredible tours we have ever taken, and it was interesting to see this great Mayan city.

We spent a couple of days in Belize before realizing we wanted to see some serious Mayan ruins. We just never realized how adventurous the trip would be.

Tikal and the Peten region of Guatemala are frequently done via a day trip from Belize and/or Cancun. This area is well worth more than part of a day at Tikal and a flight back to Cancun.

The amazing thing about Tikal is how it got so hidden. It is an incredible place. Once home to over 100,000 people, which the Maya began building around 600 bc, it was a huge power base for over 1500 years.
