    Lagunas de Montebello National Park

    February 28, 2020 in Guatemala ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    The samef day as visiting El Chiflon waterfall we went to the Lagunas de Montebello National Park, which is very close by to the Waterfalls and is full of lakes and beautiful pine trees through the green landscape 😊 we visited a view point that overlooks one of the biggest in the park, accompanied by lunch across the road at a traditional mexican street food stall. It looked rugged, and tbh we both thought food poisoning as soon as we saw it, but like many other street food stalls we'd eaten at, the food it homecooked, good hearty food that is really cheap and very tasty 😋😋 after lunch we took a short drive to a popular holiday park for locals just at the boarder of Mexico and Guatemala! We even got to cross over the boarder for abit of a walk (obviously Street vendors at ever corner ogmf the boarder trying to sell souvenirs with 'Guatemala' stamped all over it 😂 of course we had to buy at least a fridge magnet to say we had been! 😅 At the boarder you can see it's maked with white pillars to show where it starts, includeding a string of boys (the water kind 😂) hung across one of the lakes that the boarder sits on. So half the lake is mexican and the other half is Guatemalan 😀Read more

    Kippen holen in Guatemala

    May 26 in Guatemala ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Etwas spontan ging es heute an den 1500 Meter hoch gelegenen Bergsee Tziscao. Die Anreise bewältigten wir mit dem Colectivo und einer abenteuerlichen Tuk Tuk fahrt mit unserem neuen Kumpel Giovanni, um schließlich unsere traumhafte Blockhütte am See zu beziehen. Leider hatte das Wetter heute nicht so Bock und wir verbrachten den Nachmittag in unserem riesigen Bett.
    Zum Abend entspannte sich die Wetterlage und wir gingen nochmal runter an den glasklaren Bergsee und fix rüber nach Guatemala Kippen holen 😅
    Zum Abendbrot gab es bei unserem Host natürlich Tacos.
    Den Rest des Abends denken wir an Saris vollen Kühlschrank, den Sie uns heute beim Telefonieren präsentierte💭😍

    Lagos de Montebello and Guatemala

    December 4, 2018 in Guatemala ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    This morning we decided to visit the beautiful Lago de Montebello next to the boarder to Guatemala. We took a tour with a local and he showed us the national park. At some point we actually crossed the boarder and walked on Guatemalan territory, which was interesting to see how easy it was to cross the border there. In the end we had local food with typical cheese for that area, which tasted really good.Read more

    Lago Tziscao

    December 20, 2020 in Guatemala ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Ein wunderschöner Platz am Lago Tziscao, aus rund 1500 m. Etwas Nebelig und trüb, zwischendurch etwas Sonne, doch recht kühl bei 15 - 20 Grad. Einige schöne Seen wo ich auch mit Kollegen eine Flossfahrt mit anschliessender Wanderung gemacht habe.Read more
