I am planning a Belize trip next summer and am thinking about mostly staying in the San Ignacio area but taking a two-day trip across the border to Guatemala to see Tikal and maybe a surrounding point of interest.
How difficult is it to cross the border? Could my husband and I ( late twenties, we've been to CR and the Yucatan before. I'm fluent in Spanish) do this in a rental car? Is it safe? I've read that there have been some areas of concern in Guatemala lately, but maybe that's been overhyped or not anywhere around this area.
Any feedback is appreciated...thanks!
