Traveling Guatemala Tikal & Hot Spring Waterfalls OVERLAND TRAVEL SAGA Ep. 42


TRAVELLING YOGI VLOG 4: Ancient Maya - Tikal, Guatemala

What does ancient Mayan culture have to do with us today? As we continue to excavate the complex ruins of lifetimes ago, we are no doubt uncovering many layers of our own collective existence, and raising deeper questions. What have we buried? What is left unseen as we stagger towards new stratospheres? And what are we offering?

Tikal National Park, in the northern jungles of Guatemala, boasts one of the crowning jewels of ancient Maya civilization - the city & ceremonial site of Tikal, settled as early as 900 B.C., and then later abandoned for reasons yet unknown. With soaring temples that invite us to ascend, and earthen structures that conjure up the underworld... If these spaces could speak, what would they say?

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

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!

Tikal, the forgotten Mayan City: Guatemala Pt 2

This was the 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. :)

Backpacking Guatemala | SOLO FEMALE TRAVELER | Ep. 34 | Flores & Tikal

Our backpacking adventure continued from Belize (San Ignacio) to Guatemala. We crossed the border to Guatemala from Belize and got a shuttle to the island of Flores. Flores is a cute little island where most backpackers stop while visiting the world famous Maya pyramids of Tikal - the top thing to do & top attraction to see in Guatemala, for sure. We stayed in the legendary Los Amigos hostel - a backpacker hub where most traveler hatch before doing one of the Tikal tours. The hostel is one of the most nicely decorated hostels I've ever stayed at, so it is a must see ! We did the Early Bird tour to Tikal as we heard that the Sunrise + Sunset tours were BS - as you won't be able to see neither of them anyways.

Heading into Flores, Guatemala was exciting but in a much different form than I had envisioned. I had read about Flores, Guatemala prior to going, and it looked beautiful so I was exciting about getting there, however I did not expect that I would be doing it alone.

Before I departed San Ignacio for Flores, I had to say goodbye to not only Steve, but Winston as well. They had to return to Mexico to sort out some unfinished business and I would be moving on through Guatemala, and the rest of the trip myself. I crossed into Guatemala at the very simple, very straight forward border crossing of Melchor de Mencos and I was in Guatemala without enough time to say goodbye to Belize. Now, from here to Flores, Guatemala, was also straight forward. Had a driver flag me down, ask me to if I was going to Flores, when I gave him the affirmative, he waved that he too was going to Flores, and I was the first one on the bus.

San Ignacio Video:

We sat in the border town in Guatemala for about 30 minutes to gather other people, and then headed off towards Flores. You get dropped off on the other side of the bridge from the actual town of Flores and must get a Tuk-Tuk or taxi over the bridge to the center of Flores.

I had built Flores up in my head a little and it was more beautiful than I expected. Surrounded by water and sitting like a dot, in a massive lake, which, given the location of Flores, you cannot truly appreciate until you view a map.

I checked into a hostel, pulled out my camera and pressed record to show YOU a little of Flores, Guatemala.

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.
