Many people think the only option to get to Tikal and Guatemala from Mexico is by flying. It is possible to take a bus. There are regular buses from Cancun and Tulum that go to Chetumal where it is possible to get a bus to Belize city. At the boarder in Santa Elena you will have to pay a still $50 Conservation Fee, but there are few hastles. Once in Belize City take a bus to Belmopan, the very tiny capital. From here you can grab a bus to San Ignacio in the Cayo district and then a short bus ride to the boarder Benque Viejo del Carmen. Go through customs and walk across the bridge into Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala and grab a bus to Flores, Guatemala. Ask the driver to drop you off at El Cruce, "The Cross", where you need to head north to El Remate by walking or by a mini taxi (they are quite frequent). From El Remate "the dead end" you can stay the night and then take the noon bus to Tikal two and half hour drive north. In Tikal stay at the Jaguar Inn or the other two hotels. You can get a bus back to El Remate or even Flores if you would like to continue to head south to Guatemala City or just to El Cruce and head back into Belize.
