"Go to Tikal. Absolutely..." Guatemala Favorite Tip by jstrudwick

Guatemala General: 104 reviews and 81 photos

Favorite thing: Go to Tikal. Absolutely superb. It's worth staying at Tikal itself for at least one night, rather than travelling for an hour to the nearest town. The colonial town of Antigua is lovely and it's worth spending a few days there. Also, go to Lake Atitlan to relax- almost everyone staying in the town gathers at the water front to watch sunset.

Fondest memory: Sunset from the top of Temple IV. Although walking back through the forest in the dark wasn't quite so pleasant an experience! Take a good torch.
