Central America 2016 pt. 1 (Tikal)

Last week I made my way to Central America with my Mom and Dad and a family friend (Tio Efren). We left from Mérida and spent the first night of the trip in Chetumal where we had a fairly relaxing evening. It was a good thing we did since the next day we bused across the entirety of Belize and crossed in to the Peten region of Guatemala. We spent our first night in Guatemala in a gorgeous hotel overlooking the charming island of Flores (more on that in the next post) and got to bed good as we had to get up at 4:00 AM the next day and get our asses to the archaeological site of Tikal. There is not much which I can say about Tikal which has not been said already. Tikal is absolutely spectacular and I would place it firmly in to my top 5 most impressive Mayan archaeological sites. I did a bit of stop motion video (which can be seen bellow) but I hope to edit something together which is a little bit better sometime in the next week or so. In any case I hope you enjoy the photos!
