Going to Belize and thinking about guatamala...

by mervenbeck Online Now Jul 30, 2008 at 5:24 PM

Has anyone taken their kids into these countries and how would you think that would go? Is it a good idea or bad?

    It's very easy to get into guatemala from the Belize side probably safer than entering through the airport in G city.The Peten district is very rural so you also avoid the problems associated with urban areas.I've only been to Tikal and back from the Belize border but it seemed safe enough,the people friendly and inexpensive.The down side is some poor roads-Hire a guide to cart you around and make arrangements for you if you need to.
