Guatemala and Belize

The first trip I really took on my own was to Belize and Guatemala with GAP Adventures – and it was, indeed, an amazing adventure.  From ziplining through the jungle to camping along the Belize River; swimming with sharks and stingrays to wandering the quiet streets of Flores – every day was a new adventure.   The highlight for me was exploring Tikal and swimming through the ATM cave, it was fascinating and creepy to be amongst Mayan ruins and seeing the remains of their sacrifices.  Despite all this excitement however, we were also privileged to be invited into a local person’s home for some fresh chicken and also ate homemade conch stew along the beach in Caye Caulker.
