Gautemala is a great country to visit with a few days. Definitely see more of it than just Tikal, which was all I did. The food was good and cheap, the scenery is beautiful, and the history is fantastic. The Tikal ruins were wonderful, and I highly recommend that you check it out, despite the fears of it being dangerous, which are largely outdated. It is not much more dangerous than any other developing country I have been to. Just be slightly more cautious than usual.
Tital – (Spend a day here at least)
One of the two main temples of Tikal. If you look closely, there are people at the bottom left for reference of size.
Didn’t get to see much of the country but I really did like it and look forward to going back some day.
Country level of difficulty – 5/10
