Travel VLOG 5 | Flores and Antigua, Guatemala | Incredible Mayan Ruins of Tikal

Instagram:
Facebook:
Web:
------------------------------

Nach einer doch längeren Busfahrt sind wir endlich in Flores, Guatemala angekommen. Ein Hostel hatte ich nicht, also musste ich mir eines suchen. Ursprünglich wollte ich direkt auf der Insel Flores nächtigen, klappte jedoch mangels freien Betten nicht. Habe auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite jedoch ein ruhiges Plätzchen gefunden worüber ich sehr dankbar war. Von Flores aus, ging es zu einer Sonnenaufgangstour in das 60km entfernt gelegene Tikal alte Mayaruinen besichtigen. Von Flores aus, ging es per privatem Minivan nach Antigua in den Süden. Der Minivan war einmalig, günstiger und bei Nacht durchaus sicherer. Keine Touristenwerbung und ein Local als Fahrer. Antigua ist eine kleine schnuckelige spanische Kolonialstadt und liegt auf ca. 1550 Metern höhe. Entsprechend kühleres Wetter erwartete uns. Viel gemacht habe ich nicht, eher bisschen durch die Stadt laufen und essen. Von Antigua aus, geht es nun nach El Tunco, El Salvador etwas am Strand und Pool abhängen.

Guatemala: Tikal Temple 4 Sunrise Tour in 4K ancient Mayan Ruins in Jungle of Central America

Guatemala: Tikal Temple 4 Sunrise Tour in the ancient Mayan Ruins in the Jungle of Central America

Our last stop in Guatemala was the Unesco world heritage site and Mayan Ruins of Tikal which is a national park. Visiting Tikal for the sunrise tour can be tricky because you need to buy your tickets before at the main gate which does not open until later in the morning. If you don't buy them ahead of time, you will not be admitted. You can also buy them at various banks around the country ahead of time.
We got up and hurriedly walked about 20 minutes from the Tikal Inn which was one of two accommodations inside the park. Along the way we dodged harmless tarantulas using our headlamps and flashlights. We climbed the long stairs in the dark to the top of Temple IV which faces eastward and listened to the sounds of the jungle provided by a variety of birds and prehistoric sounding howler monkeys. The dawn can often be cloudy so be aware that you may not actually see the rising sun. After the sun had risen, we tromped back down the stairway and had a brief guided tour of the complex which included the Mundo Perdido and the accropolis with the jaguar temple and stellas. We headed back to the Tikal Inn which had a pool and restaurant for the rest of the afternoon to catch up on our sleep watch spider monkeys and birds as we rested for our trip to Belize the next day.

1.6 Mystic Places- Uxmal, Pyramid of the Magician & Maya Ruins. Mexico

Mystic Places, Magical Mystery Tour- Documentary Series:

Uxmal is an ancient Maya city of the classical period in present-day Mexico. It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture, along with Chichen Itza in Mexico; Caracol and Xunantunich in Belize, and Tikal in Guatemala. It is located in the Puuc region and is considered one of the Maya cities most representative of the region's dominant architectural style. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its significance.

It is located 62 km south of Mérida, capital of Yucatán state in Mexico. Its buildings are noted for their size and decoration. Ancient roads called sacbes connect the buildings, and also were built to other cities in the area such as Chichén Itzá, Caracol and Xunantunich in modern-day Belize, and Tikal in modern-day Guatemala.

Its buildings are typical of the Riley Kand Puuc style, with smooth low walls that open on ornate friezes based on representations of typical Maya huts. These are represented by columns (representing the reeds used for the walls of the huts) and trapezoidal shapes (representing the thatched roofs). Entwined snakes and, in many cases two-headed snakes are used for masks of the rain god, Chaac; its big noses represent the rays of the storms. Feathered serpents with open fangs are shown leaving from the same human beings. Also seen in some cities are the influences of the Nahua, who followed the cult of Quetzalcoatl and Tlaloc. These were integrated with the original elements of the Puuc tradition.

The buildings take advantage of the terrain to gain height and acquire important volumes, including the Pyramid of the Magician, with five levels, and the Governor's Palace, which covers an area of more than 1,200 m2 (12,917 sq ft).

TIKAL- forgotten Mayan City in the jungle- 4 days in GUATEMALA: [2/3]

Third day from my September 2017 trip to Guatemala. Tikal is an ancient Mayan city hidden in the jungles of Central America. I caught a dawn bus from Hostel Amigos in Flores and headed to Tikal. Got to explore the wildlife, the majestic Mayan ruins and temples of Tikal National Park all day. It was paradise for a history-nerd. :)

Belize day 2: Tikal Mayan ruins (Guatemala)

After having a full day's rest in Hopkins, we set out for the Tikal Mayan ruins in Guatemala. I knew the drive was going to be very long, so I wanted to go here first to get the drive over with. It ended up taking 9 hours roundtrip (1 hour at the Guatemalan border). The reason I chose Tikal over the other ruins is because Tikal is a big cluster of Mayan temples. The other ruins that I looked up in Belize only had one temple, so we decided that if we're going to see some Mayan ruins, might as well see the biggest one.

The drive was EXHAUSTING, but it was definitely worth it!

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.

A Tourist's Guide to Tikal and Flores, Guatemala

From Belize, I fly Tropic Air (as the only passenger) to Flores, Guatemala, gateway to the Tikal Ruins. After landing, I transfer to the jungle, staying at the Jaguar Inn.

Then next day, I take a trip around the ruins.

Then I head back down to Flores Island for the night.

Travel Guatemala || Tikal, Going Back In Time

Oh, Tikal. How I loved you and how I hated you. This part of Guatemala was quite the adventure for us. From a failed sunrise tour, to EPIC sunset shots, to a sketchy awful tour guide who tried to screw us, to the heat, the elation, the wonder and awe...it was literally everything wrapped in 14 hours. I was insanely tired but also insanely excited. We got some amazing footage, but it was a huge challenge to get it (carrying all that equipment! AHHH!). All in all, I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat, but I would do things a little differently. I'll lay it all out for you guys so you can learn from my mistakes, and the things we did right! -Nathalie

(All videos filmed, edited, narrated and produced by yours truly)

Where we stayed:
Posada Del Cerro in El Remate - HIGHLY recommend


What we booked:
Tikal sunrise tour AND sunset tour through Posada Del Cerro, who works with San Juan Travel. Beware a tour guide named Ruben! He tried to screw us over. I don't recommend the sunrise tour - see video. The sunset tour is much, much better.
