Guatemala City is the largest in the country of Guatemala and a natural transport hub. It serves almost every point in the land by plane or bus. Tikal is a major point of interest but quite far and separated by treacherous terrain. The bus option is long and I presume painful one while the airplane one is fast and enjoyable. 45 min are required to reach destination and the view of changing scenery from the dry, spiked by volcanoes highlands to the verdant, rolling-hill lowlands is breathtaking. There is a point or rather a ridge separating the two eco systems which makes you wonder how sharp the change of conditions and hence natural borders can be.
