5 Things NOT To Do in Guatemala

Get more Tips here!
With its lush landscapes, Mayan ruins, and towering volcanoes, there aren't too many things not to love about Guatemala. But like most countries, there are some Things NOT To Do in Guatemala.

1. Don't Visit Guatemala City
According to the U.S. Department of State's travel notice, the city is rife with violent crimes against U.S. citizens and foreign travelers. The capital was once considered safe, but those days are long gone.

2. Don't Wear Flip Flops to the Mayan Ruins
Unless you want to lose your footing and sprain an ankle, leave the flip flops in your suitcase. The ancient Mayan Ruins are over a thousand years old, staircases may be unstable, and grassy areas uneven. So watch your step!

3. Don't Have Your Heart Set on Delicious Coffee
Guatemala may be known for producing some of the best brews you'll ever taste. Sadly, most of the coffee is exported, which means you won't be sipping a cup of Guatemalan joe during your stay.

4. Don't Travel at Night
It's a necessary precaution when traveling, especially in Guatemala. When night falls, the chances of becoming a victim of a crime are far greater.

5. Don't Take Photos of the Locals Without Permission
There are unsubstantiated rumors in Mayan communities that foreigners have the intent to steal their children and sell them abroad. A Japanese tourist was tragically killed by an angry mob of 500 villagers after he took pictures of indigenous women and children in a market.

Where do you want to know what NOT to do in next?

Today we head out on a Guatemala City tour where we visit all the top attractions and we eat really authentic Guatemalan street food that you can only dream of.

Our first stop is the Guatemalan Typography Map where you can see what the country looks like with mountains, volcanoes and low lands. Next we head to Zone 1 (the historical center) and visit the central park. There we tried some fresh goat milk, saw the national palace, metropolitan cathedral and then head over the central market.

The central market is the biggest artisan market in Guatemala. We did a little shopping and then went to the lower level and ate some authentic Guatemalan street food. Here is a list of everything I tried:
-Pork Rind Taco
-Blood Sausage Taco
-Alot de Etole
-Tosta de Tomate
-Carrot Juice
-Chille Relleno Taco

Next time you head to Guatemala I recommend working with my friends at #VisitGuatemala

FUNDRAISING FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE VOLCAN DE FUEGO ERUPTION NEAR ANTIGUA IN JUNE OF 2018:

Antigua is a beautiful colonial town that is easily accessible from Guatemala City. We flew from Mexico City to Guatemala City, and from there it is a 1 hour drive to downtown Antigua.

This trip might surprise some of my Mexican viewers, as we have been making videos in Mexico for the past 6 months. But don't worry, after the Guatemala trip we will soon be back in Mexico for more travel adventures. Watch the video to find out more :)

Another 5 Things NOT To Do in Guatemala

Get more Tips here!
Guatemala. A truly awe-inspiring place. But we're here to potentially save you from danger with another 5 things NOT To do in The Land of Eternal Spring.

1. Don't Flush Toilet Paper
The pipes are different in this country, so if there's a trash can in the restroom, it's there for a reason. Use the wastebasket so you don't clog up the narrow pipes and cause some major property damage.

2. Don't Assume Everyone Speaks Spanish
Yes, you're in Latin America, but that doesn't mean everyone understands and speaks Spanish. Some of the people speak indigenous languages, including K'iche' and Kekchi.

3. Don't Use Public ATMs
There are many scams where thieves attempt to steal credit card details from ATMs. Even though ATMs are readily accessible, most of them are too old to even read the chip in your new bank card.

4. Don't Swim in Any Bodies of Water
The country isn't equipped with warning signs and lifeguards. If you go swimming or boating, you'll be doing so at your own risk. The tides and currents are strong near the Pacific Ocean coastline, and the water in Lake Atitlán has dangerous undercurrents.

5. Don't Drive!
Traffic laws aren't enforced. Many drivers switch lanes without indication, the roads are crumbling due to poor upkeep, there are frequent landslides, steep winding roads on mountains, and many other hazardous risks to motorists.
With all that being said, enjoy your trip, and be safe!

Where do you want to know what not to do in next?

AMAZING Guatemalan STREET FOOD + Antigua Walking Tour | Antigua, Guatemala

On my third day in Guatemala in partnership with the Real Intercontinental Guatemala we explored Antigua's main attractions and we ate some amazing Guatemalan street food!

We started our exploration of Antigua by walking through the historical center of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Antigua. We first saw La Carmen Convent ruins, then we went to La Perla to have a quick espresso and then we visited La Merced Church.

From there we made our way across the city and stopped at Santa Catalina Arch which is the icon of Antigua. It's a a 15 century arch built to help the nuns cross from the convent to a school. Next up we saw the Antigua Cathedral ruins. It was destroyed during an earthquake in the year 1773.

We then made a quick stop at La Casa del Ron and tried some amazing Zacapa rums. We tried Zacapa 23, Zacapa Negro and we tried a Colonial rum which is an artisan rum made by the Zacapa brand.

To end the night we headed to the public laundry square and there, there is a lady selling amazing Guatemalan street food. I tried four different things:
-Chuchitos
-Alot del Elote
-Rellenitos de Platano
-Tostada de Ensalada de Pollo

Each thing was amazing and I highly recommend visiting that lady when you head to Antigua. She gets there around 5:30pm.

Next time you head to Guatemala I recommend working with my friends at A La Carta Tours:

FUNDRAISING FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE VOLCAN DE FUEGO ERUPTION NEAR ANTIGUA IN JUNE OF 2018:

Guatemala City is big, noisy, and chaotic. I think a lot of tourists skip the capital and go straight to other more tourist-friendly locations such as Antigua or Lake Atitlan.

But I believe that every big city has beauty waiting to be found, so that's what I go looking for in Guatemala's capital — Guatemala City.

TOP 10 Amazing Facts About THE MAYANS

Top 10 Fascinating Facts About The Mayans
The Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems. Many misconceptions about the mayans exist, and this list should put an end to at least one or two of them. In addition, it will introduce you to facts that you never knew about this great ancient civilization.10
Continuing Culture
BychurchThe Fact: There are numerous Mayans still living in their home regionsIn fact, there are over seven million Mayans living in their home regions, many of whom have managed to maintain substantial remnants of their ancient cultural heritage. Some are quite integrated into the modern cultures of the nations in which they reside, while others continue a more traditional culturally distinct life, often speaking one of the Mayan languages as a primary language. The largest populations of contemporary Maya inhabit the Mexican states of Yucatán, Campeche, Quintana Roo, Tabasco, and Chiapas, and in the Central American countries of Belize, Guatemala, and the western portions of Honduras and El Salvador. Just as a point of interest, it is very possible that the word “shark” comes to us from the Mayan languages, as does the word “cocoa”. To say “thank you” in Yucatec Maya, you say “Jach Dyos b’o’otik.”9
Mayan Childhood
4-CrosseyesThe Fact: The Mayans “enhanced” the beauty of their childrenThe Maya desired some unnatural physical characteristics for their children. For instance, at a very young age boards were pressed on babies’ foreheads to create a flattened surface. This process was widespread among the upper class. Another practice was to cross babies’ eyes. To do this, objects were dangled in front of a newborn’s eyes, until the newborn’s eyes were completely and permanently crossed. Another interesting fact about Mayan children is that most were named according to the day they were born. Every day of the year had a specific name for both boys and girls and parents were expected to follow that practice. 8
Excellent Doctors
53068499.Shaman03The Fact: The Mayans had many excellent medical practicesHealth and medicine among the ancient Maya was a complex blend of mind, body, religion, ritual, and science. Important to all, medicine was practiced only by a select few who were given an excellent education. These men, called shamans, act as a medium between the physical world and spirit world. They practice sorcery for the purpose of healing, foresight, and control over natural events. Since medicine was so closely related to religion and sorcery, it was essential that Maya shamans had vast medical knowledge and skill. It is known that the Maya sutured wounds with human hair, reduced fractures, and were even skilled dental surgeons, making prostheses from jade and turquoise and filling teeth with iron pyrite.7
Blood Sacrifice
AztecshumansacrificeThe Fact: Some Mayans still practice blood sacrificeIt is a rather well known fact that the Mayans practiced human sacrifice for religious and medical reasons – but what most people don’t know is that many Mayans still practice blood sacrifice. But don’t get too excited – chicken blood has now replaced human blood. Today the Maya keep many of the ritualistic traditions of their ancestors. Elements of prayer, offerings, blood sacrifice (replacing human blood with that of sacrificed chickens), burning of copal incense, dancing, feasting, and ritual drinking continue in traditional ceremonies.6
Painkillers
Escuintla EnemaThe Fact: The Mayans used painkillers The Mayan peoples regularly used hallucinogenic drugs (taken from the natural world) in their religious rituals, but they also used them in day to day life as painkillers. Flora such as peyote, the morning glory, certain mushrooms, tobacco, and plants used to make alcoholic substances, were commonly used. In addition, as depicted in Maya pottery and carvings, ritual enemas were used for a more rapid absorption and effect of the substance. Above is a statue of a Mayan enjoying their enema.5
Ball Courts
Tikal BallcourtThe Fact: The Mayans built ball courts so they could play gamesThe Mesoamerican ballgame was a sport with ritual associations played for over 3000 years by the pre-Columbian peoples of Mesoamerica. The sport had different versions in different places during the millennia, and a modern version of the game, ulama, is still played in a few places by the local indigenous population.

I started by having a delicious breakfast at the Real Intercontinental Guatemala and some fantastic coffee. From their we drove one hour south to Antigua. We partnered up with A La Carta Tours and Antigua Rides to give us this unreal food tour of Antigua.

We started by heading to the neighborhood of San Juan del Obispo. Their we saw a 15th century church and had some Chuchitos (Guatemalan version of Tamales). They were spicy and delicious!

Next up we entered Chocolateria Antigua to see how they turn Cacao into chocolate bars. We then tried 13 different chocolates. They were all so good! I had to buy myself some.

From their we walked down the street to El Abuelo del Vino which is a fruit fermenting factory. They ferment over 40 different fruits and turn them into fruit wine. We saw the process and tried a dozen very strong wines!

After that we drove across town to Cerro de la Cruz to get an incredible view over the UNESCO World Heritage Town of Antigua. To end the tour we hit up La Cuevita de los Urquizu to have a truly unique Guatemalan meal. When you visit Antigua you have to eat here!

Next time you head to Guatemala I recommend working with my friends at A La Carta Tours: and Antigua Rides

Guatemalan STREET FOOD from the GODS in Lake Atitlan | Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala

On my second day in Guatemala in partnership with the Real Intercontinental Guatemala we explored Santiago Atitlan the most important town on Lake Atitlan. Here we tried some of the best street food in Guatemala!

When we arrived in Santiago Atitlan we headed straight for Maya Patin a local street food on Lake Atitlan which is a small salted fish mixed with tomato paste in a banana leaf. It was salty and spicy, super delicious!

Next we continued up the town and we stop and had a spicy Guatemalan snow cone. It was a little spicy but the lime made it extra delicious!

We then visit Maximon, the Maya god or grandfather of Santiago Atitlan. The maya people of Santiago Atitlan believe that he protects the town. You can see him smoking cigarets and drinking! Pretty amazing experience!

To end our day in Santiago Atitlan we visited a local fish restaurant and ate some Black Bass. I had it with a white wine sauce and I also put some spicy sauce they had which was super spicy. Mariel challenged me and I won!

From there we crossed the lake back to Panajachel and drove 3 hours back to Guatemala City to the Real Intercontinental Guatemala. We had dinner at their Japanese restaurant Tanoshii. We went all out with three rolls of sushi, sashimi and sake!

Antigua Guatemala, qué hacer y cómo llegar a Guatemala

Acompáñanos a descubrir qué hacer y cómo llegar a Antigua Guatemala, la ciudad colonial más fotogénica de Guate. Continúa leyendo la descripción del video para obtener más información acerca de precios, lugares y actividades que mencionamos en el video.

-Cómo llegar a Antigua Guatemala
*Por avión puedes tomar un vuelo que llegue a la Ciudad de Guatemala y de ahí dependiendo la hora a la que llegues si te trasladas a Antigua Guatemala o pasas una noche en la ciudad. El vuelo tiene una duración de 2 horas saliendo desde la Ciudad de México, también llegan vuelos de E.U.A., España y los principales países de Centro América.

Si quieres conseguir vuelos baratos consulta nuestro blog:

*Por tierra: Puedes tomar un taxi en el aeropuerto, preguntar si hay shuttles privadas o colectivas o si lo deseas puedes rentar auto. O puedes aventurarte y tomar un Chicken bus (10 quetzales) en caso de que lleves equipaje muy, muy ligero.

-Tipo de Moneda de Guatemala:
Quetzal. De preferencia cambia tu dinero en el aeropuerto.

-Qué hacer en Antigua Guatemala
*Subir el Cerro de la Cruz y disfrutar de la hermosa vista que se tiene desde ahí, si llevas auto tendrás que pagar 5 quetzales por el estacionamiento. Aquí podrás ver toda la ciudad de Antigua y el Volcán de Agua.

*Visita el Convento de Santa Clara: Ubicado muy cerca al lavadero público está el Convento de Santa Clara que vale la pena visitar. Es un sitio nostálgico, que al haber quedado en ruinas por el terremoto que acabó con esta ciudad lo hace un sitio perfecto para las fotografías y llevar a cabo eventos sociales como bodas o quince años.
Entrada: 40 quetzales turista extranjero

*Conoce la Fuente de los Pescados en la Iglesia de la Merced:
Esta fuente es la más grande de Antigua Guatemala y esta tiene un diámetro de 27 metros y una forma de libro acuático que puedes ver completa desde el techo de la iglesia.

Esta iglesia es muy cotizada para realizar bodas y eventos sociales, es uno de los pocos edificios que soportaron el terremoto de 1773 debido a su robusta arquitectura.

*Tómate la foto en el Arco de Santa Catalina
Este punto turístico sin duda es el más famoso y fotografiado de toda Antigua. Y es que la composición que se forma con el arco, el volcán y su calle empedrada es algo que quieres llevarte en tu memoria por siempre.

Anteriormente se usaba como pasillo para las monjas reclusas en el Convento de Santa Catalina y así evitar el contacto con la gente de la ciudad. Actualmente el arco pertenece al municipio y el convento o lo que quedó de él es un hotel.

*Pasea por la plaza central, la Catedral y el Mercado de Artesanías El Carmen

Tanto en ciudades como pueblitos siempre encontramos una plaza central donde sus habitantes van a pasar una rica tarde en compañía de familiares, amigos o con la pareja y en Antigua no es la excepción. Durante nuestro recorrido nos tocó disfrutar también del sonido de la marimba y ver cómo la gente bailaba y se divertía. Cerca se encuentra el Mercado de Artesanías “El Carmen” donde encontrarás gran variedad y no podrás decidir fácilmente qué llevar, ya que el detalle y los colores atraen muchísimo y vas a querer llevarte todo.
