Overview of Guatemala

We arrived in Guatemala after driving from Mexico to Belize. From Belize we decided to do a day trip to Guatemala. We stayed in San Ignacio in Belize to make it an easy drive for the next day. There is a border that you will have to get processed to cross into Guatemala. The same will need to be done for when you return from Guatemala to Belize.
