This was probably the longest trip I did until now, we arrived in Mexico, along the Riviera Maya, at first in Cancun, but we immediately moved to Tulum to spend a few days visiting the Mayan ruins and the beautiful beaches there. With a 'collettivo' (a small bus you can take in many cities) we visited the closer beach of Akumal, the the mayan ruins of Cobà and one of the Seven wonders, the complex of Chichen Itza.
We went down on the coast to the border with Belize, stopping in Bacalar, a beautiful lagoon with many cenotes (holes on the ground connected with the salty waters of the sea).
The trip continued in Belize city where we took a boat to San Pedro, a beautiful island with a view on the coral barrier and blue hole, after a few days spent there diving and snorkeling we moved out to Guatemala, it was a long trip to arrive in Flores, where we spent the night before going to Semuc-Champey to visit this fantastic valley and its natural pools. From there we went to visit Tikal in a very early morning, a well preserved national park with lots of Mayan ruins, it was foggy that morning, but the experience was surely worth it, walk in the middle of the jungle with very few lights and the only sounds the ones of the animals and the forest.
It was then the time to move to Antigua, a beautiful colonial city, from where you can go visit even the amazing lake Atitlan and its vulcanoes. We decided to take a boat and do a tour around the lake, stopping for a while in San Pedro la Laguna.
Already on the way back we took a long journey and went back in Mexico to San Cristobal de las Casas, then Merida and all the way back to the Riviera Maya for the last two days.
