A few days ago we crossed the border of our third country, Guatemala. Somehow it got very hilly recently and we are more pushing bikes than riding them.
The biggest difference we feel here is that it is much cheaper than Belize and of course these never ending hills. The first place we decided to visit was Tikal, a place of Maya ruins which are situated on the top of the hills surrounded by jungle. We cycled about six kilometers when we decided that it is impossible and we took the bus. Yes in Guatemala it is possible to travel with bike on top of the busses (quite tempting) 😀
Chitzen Itza was great but compared to that, Tikal is much better. It is huge and because it is hidden in the jungle you do not feel the heat that much and there are wild animals everywhere. We were watching monkeys, bird and birdwatchers 😛 and we found a pack of baby foxes.
Tikal is really amazing, you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle discovering these ruins where you are very free and can still walk inside and ontop of many of them.
