In order to get to our second destination on our trip around the world we had to take a bus from Belize City, Belize to Flores, Guatemala. The bus ride was 4.5 hours long and look us across the border into Guatemala where we had to get off our bus, walk through immigration and customs, and then get back on our bus on the other side. It was a lot easier than we thought it would be and just a couple hours later we were in Flores, where we would be spending the next 6 days.
During our 6 days in Flores we didn’t have a lot to do, but we did different things to pass the time. You’ll see from our photos that we took a trip to Tikal National Park for a day to see the Mayan ruins as well as quite a few different animals. We also spent quite a bit of time walking around the island of Flores to take pictures and enjoy the colorful buildings and narrow streets. The highlight of our trip was our time spent at Jorge’s house with his family, where we ate dinner and had fun jumping and swinging into the lake off the small cliffs by his house.
