From San Ignacio, we took a 30 minute cab ride to the Guatemalan border, and then an hour cab ride to El Remate. You have to cross the border by foot (taxis can’t take you across). This was slightly nerve-racking because there wasn’t a lot of information in the travel books about this, but it wasn’t bad at all.
Where we stayed..
Mon Ami place was beautiful and the staff were incredible, I would highly recommend staying here if you want to visit TikalIf you look up while laying in bed, this will be your view..
(this was literally the most relaxing nap, possibly of my life)
Tips for the day:
Get a guide – it is SO worth it, ours literally took us off of the trail to see howler monkeys
Wear sunscreen and bug spray…lots of bug spray, you can never have enough bug spray
Sensible shoes, its a ton of walking
And finally, stay away from the Crocodiles, the crocodiles are dangerous
