Has anyone driven from San Ignacio to Tikal area

We have rented Jeep to tour around Belize. Would like to drive to Tikal from San Ignacio.

Has anyone recent driven there?

I just did it in the summer (but with a Mexican rental car). Here is everything I can tell you:

I had no problems whatsoever. Others, though, have. Make sure to read this forum as well:

If you need anything more, feel free to ask.

Who did you rent your jeep from? I've only heard of one rental company, Crystal, that allows its cars to cross the border.

You will be uninsured while driving in Guatemala.

I usually tell friends that want to drive there from here in Cayo: "I live here and have a car, and wouldn't ever think of actually driving to Tikal." But, some friends do, and they've never had a problem.
