We've already seen quite a few Maya ruins but nevertheless Tikal really fascinated us: majestic buildings overlooking the dense jungle and wildlife all around. We even saw a Boa Constrictor. And the force was with us ;-)
After soaking for hours under naturally hot waterfalls we went to Switzerland for one evening. In a Swiss restaurant overlooking Guatemala City we've had the first pretzels for months. What a treat!
Our last stop before heading into El Salvador was the picturesque ancient capital of Antigua. Colorful and impressive buildings are surrounded by vulcanoes.
