Antigua Guatemala Travel Guide - Step Into Europe in Central America | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Welcome to Antigua Guatemala, a colorful and elegant little town in Central America.

It is a small city that used to be a part of the Spanish colony. Famous for its well-preserved Baroque-influenced architecture, as well as colonial churches ruins, it used to be the capital city. After a hazardous earthquake in 1773, the Spanish crown decided to move it to a new place which is today known as Guatemala city. Some people refused to leave and what was left was renamed into “Antigua Guatemala” meaning Old Guatemala.

Today, it only has around 30 000 inhabitants, but it is a calm and cultural place with the buildings of vivid colors, clean cobblestone streets and breath-taking architecture, very popular for tourists. It is a really cute place which is also under UNESCO’s protection.

Walking around the city, there are views of the imposing Volcán de Agua to the south and the twin peaks of Volcán de Fuego and Acatenango to the west. There are many lined with farm-to-table restaurants, contemporary art galleries, and design studios. The whole town seems so sophisticated, but in such an unusual way, since it is a combination of vivid colors, Spanish culture, rich history, and Guatemalan spirit and surrounding nature.

With its booming coffee scene and boutique hotels, Antigua is quickly garnering appeal as one of the most alluring cities in Central America and we can now see why.

Lake Atitlan Guatemala Travel Guide | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Lake Atitlan is one of the most popular places to visit in Guatemala, and for good reason. Imagine a huge lake surrounded by volcanoes and dotted with traditional villages and small towns, each with their own personality. 

Being that Lake Atitlan is easily accessible from the travel hub of Antigua, many travelers add a stay at the lake to their Guatemala trip.

You'll mingle with locals, backpackers, yogis and church groups on mission trips. You can choose to spend your time relaxing, hiking, volunteering, getting off the grid, hanging out with other foreigners, drinking a beer on the lake, cleansing your body and soul, or all of the above!

There are lots of things to do in Lake Atitlan, plus it’s perfect environment to get away from it all and simply relax. It's no surprise that people often end up staying around Lake Atitlan for much longer than expected.

Enjoy the video and make sure to let us know where you're watching from!

Rio Dulce Guatemala | Jewel of the Guatemalan Caribbean | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Welcome to the wonderful Rio Dulce, an extraordinary river in Guatemala!


Did you know that the movie “The New Adventures of Tarzan” was entirely filmed here in 1935? The beautiful rainforest you see in the movie is hidden in Guatemala and still well-preserved. To get a good shot of the forest they had to use some locations using the railroad service in Guatemala.


It is a spectacular place rich with flora and fauna, great views, folklore, beaches, and traditional locals. Being so breath-taking, many people call it the jewel of the Guatemalan Caribbean. A great place where you can spend the most peaceful time with the family.


Being a part of a lake and river system known as the department of Izabal, it is a great sailboat cruising destination. Rio Dulce flows out of the Lake Izabal and is soon spanned by one of the biggest bridges in Central America.


On one side of the bridge is the town El Relleno and a nearby orphanage Casa Guatemala that provides children with education and nourishment. On the other side is the town of Fronteras. It is considered to be the center of Rio Dulce, sometimes called by the same name, and many people arrive by canoes to visit the town because it contains a local vegetable market.

Enjoy the video and be sure to let us know where you’re watching from!

Boquete Panama Travel Guide | Top Things To See And Do | 90+ Countries With 3 Kids

Welcome to Boquete, a small, charming mountain town in Panama!

It is hidden on 1,200 meters above the sea level, in green mountain highlands, only 40 miles from the border between Panama and Costa Rica, on the Caldera River. Pleasant climate, scenic landscape, and natural environment make Boquete a popular tourist and retirement destination. Some people say it resembles a Swiss Alpine village, only located in South America.

As Panamians love to party, you can expect to enjoy monthly fiestas and music events whenever you come here.

We stayed at Los Molinos and had a fantastic time. We went on the most amazing hike down a trail that lead to a beautiful waterfall and experienced first hand the powerful flow of the river below.

We also met the most amazing people and were even invited to spend the night at one of their homes/farms.

Enjoy the video and make sure to comment below where you're watching from!

Stay tuned because the next video will be all about why people retire in Boquete Panama.

Bocas del Toro Panama Travel Guide - Captivating & Unforgettable | 90+ Countries With 3 Kids

Welcome to Bocas Del Toro, a beautiful province in Panama!


Did you know that Bocas Del Toro, translated from Spanish means “Bull’s river mouths?” Such name might sound scary to you, but don’t worry, both place and its locals are warm and friendly. However, the capital of this province bears the same name – the city of Bocas del Toro or Bocas Town for short, and it is located on Isla Colón.  

Bocas Del Toro might not have a vast territory, but it is proud to have two national parks on it -  La Amistad International Park and Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park. Another interesting fact is that the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute has a research station located close to Bocas Town, so you can be sure you’ll be surrounded by fantastic nature that’s worth exploring.

If you are looking for accommodation for your holiday here, we would recommend you to check out the wonderful Cosmic Crab Resort. It is located on Isla Carenero, and it is where we stayed at. For a reasonable price, you will have a chance to enjoy refreshing Caribbean breezes and sunbathe near coconut trees while eating delicious food. What more could you ask for?

Copan Honduras Travel Guide | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Join us for a tour of Copan, the Copan Ruins and Macaw Mountain!

Because of the ruins, in fact, Copán has always existed as a tourism base, so the town exudes an inviting, familial atmosphere.

The centerpiece of a visit, of course, is Las Copán Ruinas, the remains of the ancient Mayan city and temple grounds. The extant structures you see today are built on top of earlier, older temples and ceremonial centers.

The Copán ruins aren’t as massive or extensive as other sites, but none touches Copán for the amount of sculpture and carved stone. And there’s a great museum with a reconstructed temple and some of the thousands upon thousands of artifacts recovered from the ruins.

You can see macaws all around or you can take a tour at Macaw Mountain and learn all about these beautiful birds.

Here you can wander through acres of natural forest and manicured gardens, along walkways that connect to soaring aviaries filled with parrots, parakeets, tropical owls, and more. There’s a great little lunch grill, and the opportunity for some hands-on interaction with gigantic macaws.


Enjoy the video and let us know where you're watching from!!!

Tikal Guatemala - Ancient Mayan City & Star Wars Rebel Base | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Welcome to Tikal, the impressive ancient town of one of the most powerful Mayan kingdoms!

Guatemala is known for being a region sprinkled with ancient town ruins, and Tikal is maybe one of the most fascinating ones. Today Tikal may be to Guatemala what the Great pyramids are to Egypt. Surrounded by rainforest, it is placed 300 kilometers north of Guatemala city.

It is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization. In 1979 it was also declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The researchers estimate that it was populated by around 10,000 to as high as 90,000 inhabitants.

There were many speculations about the origin and meaning of its name, but its precise meaning still remains obscure. It didn’t get the name Tikal until its discovery in the 1840s. Before that, it was called Yax Mutal. Researches translated it as “the waterhole” because Tikal used to be a reservoir for hunters and travelers in the region. Alternative suggestions for the meaning of its name are the place of the voices in the Itza Maya language and First Mutal because Mutul was the name of the kingdom itself.

Even though the name itself remains a mystery, Tikal is still one of the best understood Maya cities, because the tombs of many rulers were discovered and the investigation of their monuments, temples, and palaces helped explain its history.

ANTIGUA FREE WALKING TOUR | Best coffee in Antigua, Guatemala

As I learned on my Antigua Free Walking Tour, most Guatemalans don't consider Antigua to be a part of Guatemala - even though it is, of course. I also found the best coffee in Antigua.

Antigua, Guatemala used to pretty much be the capital of Central America. It's also the perfect place to stay during your travel to Guatemala. Here are some of the sights in the city and other things to do in Antigua, Guatemala!

Food and drink are fairly inexpensive here, as you might expect. But if you decide to get a coffee in Antigua's Central Park, expect to pay for it! My favorite coffee was at Cafe Barista. Now, I'm sure there's FAR better coffee at a plantation, but this is the best I had of all the coffee I tried in the shops.

Don't hate me if there's a better brew. I'm sure there is. ☕????

Backpackers and other travelers on a budget would do well to walk a little farther from the city center to the local cafes and coffee houses. Even some of the local hostels have excellent food and you can eat a full meal (sometimes too much food) for $5-6 USD or less.

El Salvador Flower Route and Santa Ana Volcano | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Ruta de las Flores - Flower Route is one of El Salvador’s most popular tours because of its picturesque abundance of flowers along the 22-mile road. It is surrounded by mountains as well, it looks divine and if you have time to make a few stops, you get the chance to visit many wonderful villages like Nahuizalco, Juayúa, Apaneca.

In addition to the flowers, there are many coffee plantations that you can see along the road. Coffee is a really important national product, and you get the opportunity to see the beans up close in its natural form. On this tour, we’ve really got the chance to explore different parts of this country.

We enjoy a full 2 day tour with Ivan from Real Trips which included a hike up the Santa Ana volcano.)
Here’s the link to his site:

Ivan took us to a lake canyon near Santa Ana, Lago de Coatepeque. Then around the flower route stopping in little villages with Central parks, churches, a christ statue, markets, look out points … and to the hotel at night. We ended the day with hot springs!!!

El Salvador has a bad reputation for being dangerous but we felt safe the whole time we were there. We walked around all the little towns along the Flower Route and had no problems at al.

Enjoy the video and make sure to let us know where you’re watching from!

Merida Mexico Vacation Guide - The Adventure Continues | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Join us as we continue our adventure in Merida Mexico!

One of the best destinations in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is Merida. With a great location full of history, beauty, and some of the most authentic and genuinely nicest people you can’t help but see why so many are falling in love with this city.

We also visited Progresso Beach which is about 20-30 minutes north of the city on the Gulf of Mexico.

Home to the longest pier in Mexico, this relaxed beach town has a laid-back vibe and gets packed with tourists enjoying the water and loads of restaurants serving fresh seafood .

You won’t want to miss The Gran Museo del Mundo Maya. Here you will learn all about Mayan history & culture.

Our next stop was the Santa Barbara Cenotes where we took a horse drawn railroad cart to the beautiful crystal blue water Cenotes.


Enjoy the video and please let us know where you're watching from!
