Lakes, Visits and Landslides (Country Guatemala, Area Lago de Atitlan, City San Marcos)

Anne & Ben's Trip Report


Okay, so hello, we spent some very relaxing days in San Marcos, a very small  town on Lago de Atitlan.  We basically went swimming, ate delicious food and did fantastic yoga classes every morning.  Unfortunately, I sprained my wrist or something in one of the classes. I saw a chiropractor yesterday (the only doctor I could find in Antigua on a Saturday, even at the hospital) and he said it  wasn't broken, so that's good news.

Tikal (Country Guatemala, City Coban)

Anne & Ben's Trip Report

After having a really great visit with friends in Belize we hurried across the border to Guatemala and Tikal.  We went into the park in the afternoon and walked through the ruins for sunset.  It was so beautiful, we climbed to the top of a pyramid that was built in 700 BC and had a view of other temples rising up through the jungle, it was awesome, the white buildings poking out through the tree.  We saw parrots and toucan flying from up there, it was really great.
