"The Mayan ruins at Tikal are..." Guatemala Favorite Tip by Annabella

Guatemala General: 104 reviews and 81 photos

Favorite thing: The Mayan ruins at Tikal are terrific. You can get a good, inexpensive tour through many agencies in Antigua. I highly recommend bringing wet wipes with you to freshen up -- it's very humid. Bug spray is a good idea, too, and packing your own snacks is recommended.

Guatemala City has very little going for it, and one morning is plenty of time to just get a feel for the city.

A lot of guidebooks really knock the city of Panajachel on Lake Atitlan. We found excellent accommodations there and quite enjoyed the nightlife.
