Guatemala & Belize - Volcanoes, Beaches and More 😍

Spent 2.5 weeks travelling across Guatemala and Belize!

Highlights include the intense hike up to base camp at 3900m of Volcano Acetenango. We had 180 views of two other volcanoes, one of which was spurting clouds and lava pretty much all the time! The sunset was amazing. But post sunset was possibly even better - stars galore and the bright orange lava glowed so brightly against the black sky.

Semuc Champey (not filmed) was a super fun adventure - a long bus ride into the center of the country and jungle to get there but worth it! We spent an entire day exploring the caves by candle light, hiking up to a view point in the park and then swimming in the pools at Semuc Champey.

Once we got to Belize, we headed straight for Caye Caulker - a tiny tropical and totally idyllic island off the coast from Belize City. An absolute dream for 4 days. Well needed relaxation after pretty much traversing Guatemala West to East by bus.

The video doesn't actually cover a lot of the things we did - living in the moment too much hehe 🙏😜

A rough itinerary if you're interested:
Day 1: Arrive into Guatemala City
Day 2: Head to Antigua (small colonial town close to the volcanoes)
Day 3: Acetenango hike and camp
Day 4: Back to Antigua then to Lake Atitlan
Day 5: Explore the villages around Lake Atitlan
Day 6: Chichicastenango Market (we thought it was over-hyped)
Day 7: Bus to Semuc Champey (a longgggg day)
Day 8: Semuc Champey
Day 9: Head to Flores
Day 10: Tikal Mayan Ruins
Day 11: Bus to Belize City then ferry to Caye Caulker
Days 12-15: Caye Caulker chillin’
Then back home!

Comment below if you need any tips on planning! Definitely some things I may have done differently.

I went solo backpacking around Central America for 6 weeks, travelling through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala.

This 3 part documentary series shows the entire backpacking experience.

In this second video I head inland through Belize to San Ignacio, exploring the Caracol ruins by jeep. Then I crossed the border into Guatemala, staying in the beautiful town of Flores to visit the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal.

Next stop was the beautiful Semuc Champey, stunning waterfalls in the jungle-filled mountains. I stayed at the Zephyr Lodge in Lanquin which was a fun but dangerous place for your bank account.

Caye Caulker to Flores, Guatemala Boat and Bus

The combo water taxi and direct bus from Caye Caulker to Flores, Guatemala. Catch the morning water taxi from Caye Caulker, wait around for the small probably about 15 person bus that goes from Belize City to Flores, Guatemala. Bus leaves at around 11am. Get to the Belize border at around 2pm. Arrive in Flores around 5pm. Easy process but the border can be a bit confusing.

TOBACCO CAYE, Belize - Dive, eat, sleep, repeat

Tobacco Caye is a small island right at Belize's Barrier Reef. We stayed at Reef's End Lodge ( They have a great dive master, amazing food and world-class cocktails. We were there for 6 days, enough time to get the PADI Advanced Open Water certification and do plenty of snorkeling and relaxing. We also went on a day trip to Glover's Reef, a marine reserve with pristine corals.

Tobacco Caye is just a 20 minute boat ride from Dangriga, which you can reach with a short plane ride (Tropic Air) or by car or bus from Belize City.

Belize - 2017 - Mayan Temples - Caye Caulker - Cave Tubing - Tikal

If you have any questions regarding my trip or things I'd recommend, leave a comment below! Belize and Guatemala are very welcoming and amazing.

The itinerary of our trip:

1. Snorkeling Adventure - Coral Garden, Tarpon Feeding, Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Break with Belize Exotic Adventures. I did not film the snorkeling or shark feeding bit since we were in the water swimming. But I filmed the tarpon feeding, which was really cool!

2. Xunantunich Mayan Ruins with Pacz Tours. This is the 2nd tallest structure in Belize (behind the temple at Caracol) but it was really easy to climb. The view is spectacular. We also stopped at Cahal Pech Ruins that are walking distance from San Ignacio as well as the iguana sanctuary at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel.

3. Caracol Mayan Ruins along with Rio Frio Cave and Rio on Pools with MayaWalk Tours. Caracol is a fairly large site with many temples to climb, as well as the largest structure in Belize! The road took a bumpy 2 hours to get here, but worth it. Rio On Pools are natural pools in a river that felt refreshing after hiking around the ruins.

4. Tikal Mayan Ruins in Guatemala with Pacz Tours. This is a must for anyone going to Belize. Tikal is too close to Belize to pass up, and it's the largest Mayan ruins site. Countless temples to climb, all surrounded by jungle and wildlife. One can never forget this is where George Lucas filmed Yavin 4 in the original Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977.

5. Cave tubing with MayaWalk Tours in the Caves Branch river system at the Nohoch Che'en Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve. After a 45 minutes hike through the jungle, we floated peacefully down a river that passed through multiple caves and jungle.

This video was filmed between January 3rd, 2017 to January 9th, 2017. It consists mainly of my adventures with my family in Belize, but a quick side trip to Tikal in Guatemala.
