Dear all, this is the first time we are travelling to Guatemala. Due to limited time that we have available, we decided to drive to Tikal (we will be staying in the park itself) directly from Guatemala City airport.
The drive will be at night and I was wondering what kind of roads are there, any gas stations, where is it safe/unsafe to stop? How much time do you think it may take? Google says 7 hours, but taking into account that we will be driving rental car at night on the roads that we do not know... 10 hours? More?
Two days later we will be driving from Tikal to Lake Atitlan. Any tips that you can share?
Thanks a lot in advance!
We are travelling with two kids, which makes me a bit more nervious that usually :)
