In this video, we visit the infamous Guatemala City… a city everyone told us NOT to travel to. Everyone we spoke to, locals and travelers, told us that Guatemala City is extremely dangerous and that there is nothing to do. However, people telling us this made us want to visit even more! As full time travelers, we constantly remind ourselves that there are always many perspectives and sides to every story. Instead of listening to others, we decided to explore Guatemala City for ourselves. We hope you ENJOY :) Have you even been to Guatemala City?

This was my first time visiting Guatemala! I stayed at Casa Palopo in Lake Atitlan and it was a dream. Definitely on my list to visit again. I even hiked an active volcano which was one of the coolest travel experiences of my life! Antigua was a charming town that I loved exploring, and I loved learning about the Pintando Project in Santa Catarina, Lake Atitlan. Such an amazing way to bring the community together and help with tourism!

Hope you like the VLOG!

3 Day Family Trip to Guatemala Vlog! Visit Antigua and Lake Atitlan!

In November 2018, we made a very random and impromptu plan to travel to Guatemala. This country had never been on our bucket list. We had never even remotely thought about it as our travel destination. We were just searching for cheap tickets for a quick 3 day trip, and we found great flight deals for Guatemala City from Houston. After consulting a Guatemalan coworker, we were directed to Nahual Tours, a tour company based in Guatemala, that specializes in organizing guided tours of various parts of the country. They have many different packages to choose from. The tour guides are very friendly and helpful! Our guide was Rodrigo Chun, and he was a lot of fun and very considerate.

We landed in Guatemala City, but we did not stay there. We were very short on time, so we could only fit in so much to our trip. After visiting the beautiful country, we have realized there are so many things we still have to do and see there. On our future bucket list in Guatemala is Tikal, the famous Mayan Ruins. Also, very high on our list is the tour of Volcan Pacaya. We would love to revisit Antigua and enjoy the cobblestone streets, the colorful colonial buildings and the lush greenery!

Off the beaten path Backpacker travel guide in Guatemala

Off the beaten path backpacker travel guide in Guatemala that includes hitchhiking, Couchsurfing, canoeing, motorcycle riding, and much more travel activities off the beaten patch! See the Guatemala travel guide map bellow :)

Guatemala travel guide map:

You will likely start your backpacking trip by flying to the Guatemala City, or otherwise crossing the land boarder from neighboring El Salvador, Honduras, or Mexico, where I came from. In that case you’ll likely end up in the capital city anyways, because the majority of transportation happens to and from here.

Unfortunately, I can’t tell much good about Guatemala City, it’s large, crowded, and dangerous too, multiple time have I been warned about pickpockets and worse. Luckily, just an hour’s drive from it is the old capital city, Guatemala Antigua.

It’s the prior capital that was destroyed by a series of earthquakes in 1773, and thus the capital city was changed again. Today you can find colorful, traditional Guatemalan architecture, friendly locals and local food choices like Pepián, Jocon, Quichom. Though I found many foods similar to Mexican just less spicy, and chillies were generally served in a separate dish. A city tour and food tour should be in a to do list here. I stayed in Antigua a few days with a counchsurfer host, it was already my second one in Guatemala, I’d say couchsurfing is common here and hosts are relatively easy to find.

Lake Atitlan (or Lago de Atitlán) is another frequent stop on many visitors itinerary and it was mine too. It’s a volcano-rimmed lake with plenty of backpacker hostels and Mayan villages that dot the shores. I stayed in San Pedro, small truly unique town, and again couchsurfing. I can’t think of a better way to experience what the country and culture is about than through locals.

Generally, food prices for a meal are around 3 Dollars at a cheap restaurant, 2 in the street, or for 1 dollar you can get a bunch of fruits at the local market, which is on a list of recommendations anyway. Yet the most fascinating attraction is the lake itself surrounded by vast mountain ranges and few volcanoes, hiking to one of them should be a must.

Now, let’s talk chicken buses! They are the single most adventurous part about Guatemala I enjoyed the most! The chicken buses are reincarnated North American school buses driven by maniac drivers who thought Formula 1 was too easy. All of that makes for the most quintessential Guatemalan experience there is.

I made my way the Rio Dulce, or sweet river by direct translation, where I lived in Catamaran with bearded men for a week through Workaway. The town itself wasn’t that spectacular, but I heard that many species of Birds & Animals make Rio Dulce region a great spot for birdwatching, animal spotting and fishing.

Next up, close to Rio Dulse, was Flores. I quite liked it here, and you might to, particularly if you want to experience bigger and somewhat less touristy Guatemalan city.

From Flores you can take a bus ride to one of best preserved Mayan ruins in the world, Tikal. That’s what I did, just instead of taking a bus I rented a motorbike from an owner of one tourist agency for 20 dollars, it was his personal motorbike, I can’t recall seeing any typical rentals. Anyways, I did so for the sake of adventure of course, price, since taking a bus to Tikal and back wasn’t that much cheaper, and I also wanted to see Uaxactun, an ancient sacred place, commonly assumed to have served as astronomical observatory. It was one of the longest-occupied Maya settlements. Without your own transport you’d have to hire a private driver from Tikal.
Howler monkeys and dense jungle make walking around the ruins an adventure in itself. To put it shortly, Tikal is a must.

And if that wasn’t enough and you’re still feeling adventurous, you could hitchhike your way back to Guatemala. It took me two days and about 8 vehicles, but it was hella-of-a-good trip. It’s a good way to practice your Spanish too.

Okay, there was one questionable guy with a white truck and thick gold chain around his neck that when I opened the front door forgot his desert eagle on the passenger seat, but he said he was a farmer and the gun was just for protection so was all cool.

Getting LOST in Antigua, Guatemala | Day 1 First Impressions

It's day 1 of my Guatemala adventure, and I'm dropping my bags at the hostel and getting LOST! I just arrived in Antigua with no plan, no direction, and no idea what's in store! It's time to go out and explore all the beauty, food and culture that this slice of Latin America has to offer. On today's mission I explore a gigantic market, get a great view of the Agua Volcano, chow down on some amazing Guatemalan food like Caldo Tialpeno, and show you what the streets of Antigua are like in 2021. Stay tuned for daily videos of my adventures here on all of my social media platforms.

Traveling During Covid 19 Vlog | Flying to Guatemala in Central America During Covid 19 (2021)

In today's vlog I will be traveling during covid 19 and flying to Guatemala in Central America in 2021. I know traveling during covid 19 can be very complicated, so in this video I take you with me as I embark on my next journey to Guatemala! In this flying during pandemic vlog, I will show you my entire travel experience flying to Guatemala in 2021, from getting through the airports to explaining everything you need to know to ensure that you follow all of the proper entry requirements to avoid quarantine upon arrival, or worse, get denied entry. I will also explain how I conduct my research to make sure that I have all of the necessary information before traveling abroad. I hope you enjoy this covid travel vlog and find it useful for your future trip.

Based on my experience in April of 2021, in order to enter Guatemala from the United States, you will need to complete 2 primary tasks. First, you will need to get a negative covid-19 test within 72 prior to your departure. This test must be either a PCR or Antigen test. Based on my research, if you have been fully vaccinated for more than 2 weeks prior to your departure, you may not need a negative covid test, but I chose to get a negative covid test anyways to be extra safe and to ensure I would not have any issues getting into Guatemala. In addition, you will need to complete the Guatemala Health Screening Form within 24 hours prior to your departure. As always, I would encourage you to conduct your own research as well to ensure you are following all of the necessary requirements, especially since they could change by the time you travel.

Hey lovers! In our first vlog EVER, we take you with us to one of the most underrated countries in Central America: Guatemala. Full of rich indigenous Mayan culture and colonial charm, #Guatemala is the perfect destination for all types of travelers. We will explore the beautiful UNESCO city of #Antigua where we will wander cathedrals ruined by numerous earthquakes and hike an ACTIVE volcano and roast marshmallows using the heat from it's lava vents. After that, we make our way to the absolutely breathtaking #Lake Atitlán, where we stay at the dreamiest hotel with stunning views of the lake. We were weary about visiting Guatemala due to the rumor of danger, but the scariest thing we encountered was completely unrelated to crime. If you were on the fence about visiting #Guatemala, we hope this vlog pushes you over the edge!
