Tikal GO: Tikal, Flores and Yaxha
From San Ignacio in Belize we decided to hop over to Tikal and found local Agency Tikal Go that organized the Guatemala tour for us. With transport to the border included, where we were picked up by driver and our guide. Tikal was amazing and we got a ton of background info along the way and great lunch in the park. From there it was on to Flores where Carlos greeted us at the lovely hotel downtown ... more to make sure all was perfect. We could spend the late afternoon, evening and the next morning in Flores. In the afternoon we visited Yaxha and witnessed an impressive sunset over the Yaxha lake. Then it was back to San Ignacio in similar fashion as the day before. Very well spend 2 days in Guatemala, too bad we did not have more time.
