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 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.

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

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

Exploring TIKAL, The Most Impressive Mayan Ruins In Guatemala

The EPIC view of Tikal really took our breath away. We spent the day exploring the most beautiful Maya ruins in Guatemala. Tikal National Park is home to over 60.000 buildings of which only a fraction has been excavated. The temples are situated in the middle of the jungle. The surroundings really give it an impressive atmosphere. As we were walking in the jungle between the temples, we came across a bunch of wildlife, which was a really cool extra. We highly recommend to visit Tikal, as it is such an amazing site to explore. You can hire a guide at the entrance to give you a tour. We recommend staying on the beautiful island of Flores, where you can easily book a tour to visit the temples of Tikal.

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.

Exploring Underground in the Tikal Ruins in Guatemala - The Adventure of a Lifetime

The adventure of a lifetime exploring the Tikal ruins in Guatemala. While walking down random trails, we stumbled upon some carved holes in the ground. With a heart of adventure, we went in to see what the underground ruin was and where it led! Spiders, tarantulas, scorpions, snakes... no matter! We pressed on despite the fear I have for spiders!

Tikal is a ruin city consisting of huge temples and many undiscovered ruins. The city of Tikal is one of the largest Mayan cities discovered. It is absolutely breath taking to go underground, above the trees and all around exploring this ancient civilization. It is amazing to see what ancient civilizations accomplished thousands of years ago!

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!

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!

Skopje Macedonia ???????? AMAZING FOOD ???? STATUES ???? & Birthplace of MOTHER TERESA ???? | 197 Countries, 3 Kids

Join us as we visit Skopje - the capital and largest city of North Macedonia

Lying on the banks of the Vardar River, you will find Skopje — one of the most eclectic cities in Europe. From 80ft—tall monumental fountains and dramatic facades to Ottoman cobbled streets, they all contribute to the charm of this unique capital.

Looking back in time, Skopje has been destroyed several times due to fires and earthquakes. The last one took place in 1963, after which the city was completely rebuilt by the Japanese architect, Kenzo Tange.

Today Skopje is the place to be in North Macedonia. It’s the main cultural, educational, and political center of the country with just over half a million residents and almost as many who commute daily for work and studies.

We arrived to Skopje late in the afternoon and checked into “Old Alisa”- a cozy little hotel in the Old Town. Then we decided to grab some late dinner at a nearby rustic restaurant known as a ‘kafana’. We had the famous ‘baked beans’, and I have to say, the food lived up to its reputation.

The nice meal fueled us up for a quick look-around of the city center. We were really surprised by the enormous fountains and countless monuments which were unlike anything we have seen before.

So far, we were impressed with the city and the country in general. The roads and highways were clean, and they even accepted Euros and credit cards at the tolls, which is very convenient if you don’t have the local currency.

Day two started with some traditional pastries for breakfast, and then it was time for some exploring. On our way to the Skopje fortress, we did some window shopping. The Old Town area is a bustling place with all kinds of craft shops and modern stores.

Once we arrived at the fortress, we were able to enjoy a panoramic view of Skopje and observe the fusion of the old and the new firsthand. The Skopje fortress dates back to the 6th century AD and has witnessed many wars and disasters.

Just a short walk to the city center and we were in front of the Memorial House of Mother Teresa. For those of you who didn’t know, Skopje is the birthplace of the biggest missionary in the world. The memorial house includes a museum and a small chapel. It literally costs nothing to take a peek at the life of one of the greatest women ever born.

On our way back, we stopped by the National Opera and Ballet house and continued towards the Old Bazar. From shoes and clothes to makeup and food, we found everything in those busy stalls.

Finally, we decided to treat ourselves to some delicious food at the Italian restaurant “La Terrazza” and call it a day.

On our third, and last day in Skopje, we had Julia’s phone fixed for only 25 Euros and bought some extra data. Then, with the sound of the midday prayer coming from the mosque, we headed to a local café where we tried some desserts like the traditional baklava and Tres Leches.

All in all, we felt like Skopje had so much to offer and it’s the perfect destination to visit if you are looking for a mix of great-value, hospitality, delicious food and unconventional charm.

Visit Belize - Caribbean Vacation and Adventure Awaits at Hopkins Bay | 90+ Countries with 3 Kids

Join us as we visit Belize, on the Caribbean Sea, in the heart of the cozy Garifuna village of Hopkins.

Voted the friendliest place in Belize, the friendly seaside village of Hopkins is a cultural hotspot. Hopkins was established back in the 1940’s after a nearby area was devastated by a hurricane and everyone from farmers to fishermen relocated there. 

While Hopkins has grown, the area has retained its costal charm and resisted over-commercialization.

It is also perfectly located for Belize’s best adventures. There is jungle for your inner hiker and inner zipliner and reefs for your inner snorkeler. There is also waterfalls for your inner rappeller and ancient Maya sites for your inner explorer.

We stayed at the beautiful Hopkins Bay Resort!

Enjoy the video!!!
