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?

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.

Traveling to Guatemala

Traveling to Guatemala

This video is the beginning of our Guatemala Adventures! On a spur of the moment decision we decided to go live on the shores of Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands. It's a place with a beautiful culture, amazing wildlife and towering volcanoes. Guatemala is known as the Land of Eternal Spring because of it's amazing climate, with temperatures always comfortable. When a great deal on plane tickets showed up, we couldn't pass up the opportunity. What better place to have some awesome adventures!

At the beginning of this video you'll get a small taste of some of the wonders of Guatemala, but this is the story of traveling to Guatemala! Make sure to subscribe to catch all of our Guatemala adventures!

For anyone keeping track, this video will mark the first instance of us not numbering our adventures anymore. Our last set of videos (adventures 34, 35, and 36) took place in South Dakota while we were touring the United States. From South Dakota we continued to travel the states for many months and the backlog of adventure videos to edit just piled up. There are some 15 videos still sitting in the queue. Instead of staying in order, we decided to just jump straight to our current destination in Guatemala, and to retroactively post the other videos as time allows. They'll all make it up eventually...but if it appears that we are skipping around the globe, that's not quite the case. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see where we are at currently in our travels, and to connect! We love talking travel, and making new friends!

Exploring Guatemala - Guatemala Travel Guide
Guatemala is the Mayan heart of Central America. There are dozens of historical sites to explore in this country, but there are other charms here as well, such as the colonial city of Antigua, the lively market of Chichicastenango, the incredible ancient ruins of Tikal, and many awesome volcanoes and lakes. All that plus dense jungles, colonial cities, and relatively inexpensive food makes Guatemala one of the best places in the region. This travel guide can help plan your trip there and avoid the hordes of tourist who are slowly discovering this inexpensive and wonderful country.

Top 5 Things to See and Do in Guatemala
1. Take In Lake Atitlan
This lake is framed by three volcanoes and offers arguably the best spot to watch the sunset in Guatemala. On the northern coast of the lake lies the tourist village of Panajachel, a good base to arrange lake and volcanoes tours as well as to enjoy the many restaurants, bars, and nightlife in a beautiful lakeside
2. Head To Antigua
This picturesque colonial city sits in a highland valley between three volcanoes and is full of characteristic colonial Spanish architecture, from its cobbled streets, churches, and houses, to its ruins, and parks. Head to the Plaza Mayor (central square) to take in its amazing gardens, palaces, and cathedral.
3. Stroll Tikal National Park
Guatemala’s most famous cultural attraction. I loved these ruins — they made me feel like Indiana Jones. Come early and stay late as the park empties out in the afternoon when the tour groups leave, and you can have the place all to yourself. I also recommend sleeping over in the park to catch the sunrise. Admission is 150 GTQ.
4. Visit Semuc Champey
Semuc Champey consists of a 1,000-foot long limestone bridge over the Cahabòn River. Take a candlelit tour through the Kamba caves, go tubing down the Cahabòn, or swim in the turquoise pools along the bridge. FYI, the caves are privately owned and can only be visited with a guide. Most tour operators have day trips to both sites for 150-225 GTQ.
5. Chichicastenango Market
Most people who come to Guatemala visit Chichicastenango — the largest native market in North America. Every Thursday and Sunday is market day in “Chichi” when thousands of Quiche Mayans come to town to buy and sell handicrafts, flowers, poetry, trinkets, and textiles.

Guatemala Budget Travel Top Tips

In this video we show you the top tips to Travel Guatemala on a budget. When you first head to Guatemala, just like us you are probably expecting that this less developed country will be a budget travel paradise. But many travellers know that Guatemala is actually quite a bit more expensive than they anticipated, because of higher prices targeted specifically at tourists.

So is travelling Guatemala on a budget still possible? How difficult is that REALLY? We spent a few days exploring the beautiful colonial city of Antigua on 15 USD per day. The result is this Antigua budget guide. We hope you'll put it to good use for your own travels to Guatemala!

We hope you'll find it useful

Antigua Guatemala 2020 - Guatemala City to Antigua Guatemala, Chichicastenango & Lake Atitlan

Antigua Guatemala 2020 - Guatemala City to Antigua Guatemala, Chichicastenango & Lake Atitlan.

This is our revisit to Antigua Guatemala 2020. We're starting the year off right in Antigua. We fly into La Aurora international airport in Guatemala City, Guatemala. We then take an Uber from Guatemala to Antigua Guatemala for the first leg of our trip. We then head to Lake Atitlan and Chichicastenango and to the largest mercado in Central America. As well as visiting Lake Atitlan. Guatemala City to Antigua is a good start when first arriving in Guatemala and Guatemala City. We were just in Antigua Guatemala 2019 and loved it so much, we were planning how to get back ever since then.

We highly recommend Guatemala travel of course. And of course we recommend visiting Antigua Guatemala as well. Antigua Guatemala is absolutely beautiful. If you've seen my last videos from Guatemala, you'll know that this our favorite country and city in the world. While we haven't been everywhere, we've been enough places and countries to know. Guatemala 2020 is starting the year off right. And Antigua Guatemala travel is an awesome way to start the year.

This is my Antigua Guatemala travel vlog. I hope you'll enjoy my Antigua Guatemala vlog. We took an Antigua guatemala walking tour as soon as we arrived in Antigua. We visited the Casa del jade antigua guatemala and made a couple of purchases. Our hotel was Casa Encantada Antigua Guatemala. Please see the videos to see how absolutely beautiful it was. It also included breakfast from the terrace. The Antigua Guatemala walking tour was great, which we were allowed to meet the new Vice Mayor and visiting the jade museum. Antigua Guatemala nightlife is excellent; while shutting down early, it's absolutely beautiful. Lot's of bars, restaurants and live entertainment. Again, this is my Guatemala travel vlog; I hope you enjoy, like and subscribe. Remember, travel Guatemala.

Below are links to the products that I recommend. If you choose to purchase any of them, I get a few pennies for it. #CommissionsEarned If I didn't highly recommend something I wouldn't put it on my channel.

Interesting Facts about Guatemala 2019 - Garifuna People and More

Interesting Facts about Guatemala 2019 - Garifuna People and More. In this video I'll be counting down my top 10 most interesting facts about Guatemala. Facts about Guatemala that aren't always known. Guatemala is a beautiful country and full of interesting people, experiences and nature to enjoy. There are numerous fun facts about Guatemala. I've just chosen my top 10. Don't skip ahead, but the Garifuna people have the most interesting story that I encourage you to research. Thanks to my subscriber (Bonded Team) for the info. It has me seeking more information, as being Black in America does not afford being taught about your history. I find it extremely interesting and important to share.

These are just my choice of top 10 facts about Guatemala. Guatemala Garifuna, again are a people worth researching. Guatemala City was my landing spot during my trip to Guatemala. I enjoyed my time there and look forward to revisiting soon. Visiting Guatemala has been one of those spiritually guided trips that I am grateful for. Tikal, more specifically, Tikal Guatemala will be on our list of places to visit during our next trip. Information about Guatemala seems to be prevalent on YouTube, but I just want to make sure I do it justice and encourage others to visit. And, of course, if you're going to visit Guatemala, Lake Atitlan should be number 2 right after Antigua Guatemala. Antigua Guatemala was our number one favorite city that we've visited together or during a single trip. Garifuna Punta is something I'll be looking out for in the near future. Albeit faster than DC GoGo Music, it has the same spirit.

I hope you enjoy my video on my top 10 facts about Guatemala. And don't forget the information on Guatemalan languages. There are 21 Mayan dialects and worth researching as well. Facts about Guatemala 2019 are here on YouTube, but again, I'd like to ad my slant on it and get you to research a bit more the Garifuna People and Garifuna Livingston Guatemala as well. Livingston Guatemala is another one of those places that I personally need to visit. I look forward to offering more Facts about Guatemala 2020 and Guatemala 2020. Garifuna People; What?!

Below are links to the products that I recommend. If you choose to purchase any of them, I get a few pennies for it. #CommissionsEarned If I didn't highly recommend something I wouldn't put it on my channel.

Guide to visiting Flores & Tikal Guatemala (2019) Mayan Ruins

In this episode we stay on in the picturesque town of Flores in Guatemala and share with you our experience of visiting the Mayan site of Tikal.

Flores is a small and beautiful town located on and island in a lake. The island is easily accessible as it is connected to .the mainland by a bridge. We show you all the island. Flores is a meca for tourist arriving in Guatemala from Belize or as a final stop before heading to Belize and is the main place that tourists stay to visit the Mayan Ruins of Tikal.

We took a day tour to the Mayan Ruins of Tikal, which are located approximate one and a half hours drive from Flores. A site filled with mystery - make sure you have a guided tour as the guides are very knowledgable and without them you would be walking around the ruins and tikal without learning anything about the Mayan history or way of life - they're also great for spotting and pointing our wildlife on the way.

We recommend visiting Tikal early in the morning as by 11am the weather is very hot and nearly 40 degrees celsius. We left at 4.30am and there is a tour that leaves around 3am if you want to watch the sun rise over the ruins.

Thanks for watching
