For the third installment of the Guatemala Series, anyone who knows me at all, knew this topic was coming. How did I wait so long? Yes, there is much to love about the natural side of Guatemala. The country is beautiful and diverse — from the jungle that comes right down to the Rio Dulce to volcanoes surrounding Lake Atitlan to the cloud forests that the national bird, the quetzal, calls home to the wildlife-rich Mayan city of Tikal and everything in-between. Grab your binoculars and put on your hiking shoes, because there is no shortage of amazing sights to see.
This video don’t even scratch the surface. I am really kicking myself for not getting into video sooner. But it is still a fun look at some scenery and wildlife.
Our first exploration was with Paul, Jayne, and Lily from Delphinus. They tied up at Hacienda Tijax, which has a nature preserve behind the marina with a gorgeous nature walk.
