Seeing the Mayan remains in Tikal, Guatemala was an incredible site. We hiked back through the grounds and climbed some of the towers. What the Mayans built with human power and a whole lot of faith was unbelievable. Apparently the ruins continue on underground quite a ways and there is much more to be excavated.
The stairways were very steep.

We saw a nice sized tarantula.
The slate where heads were chopped off… yikes. The Mayans definitely liked to “sacrifice” people.
This is one of my favorite photos. Looking at one of the other temples from afar.
Tikal is beautiful and historical. It was remarkable touching history and imaging what it used to be like back in the day.
As someone who thoroughly loves travel and photography, I’ve also toted my big SLR camera around (and still do to be honest). After getting a GoPro though, it really takes the cake in terms of adventure camera. It has a waterproof housing and you can hold it in your hand. Here are some of my GoPro shots from Belize!
Barrier Reef snorkeling.
Jungle zip lining.
I have an older GoPro but the images are still great quality. I recommend the camera to anyone looking for a good camera that’s small, easy to pack, and durable.
