So me and @helene_wab got absolutely RUINED today. 🤓👌 Xunantunich is an Ancient Maya archaeological site in western Belize, about 70 miles west of Belize City, in the Cayo District.
Xunantunich is located atop a ridge above the Mopan River, well within sight of the Guatemala border – which is a mere 0.6 miles to the west. "Xunantunich" is a Mayan term that means "stone woman", and many locals believe that a female ghost haunts the ruins.
San Ignacio is a town in the Cayo District of western Belize, on the banks of the Macal River. It’s linked to the town of Santa Elena by the metal suspension Hawksworth Bridge. On a hill south of town are the Mayan ruins of Cahal Pech, abandoned in the 9th century. There is a small museum amid the plazas and temples. Nearby, the Rainforest Medicine Trail explores the medicinal properties of indigenous plants.
Tikal is one of the largest of the ancient ruined cities of the Maya civilization. It is located in the El Petén department of Guatemala.
It was used as a filming location for Yavin 4 in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
The shot where a Rebel oversees the Millennium Falcon landing on Yavin was taken on top of a building known as Temple IV looking east where Temples I, II and III can be seen on film.
The Massassi Site, also known as the Massassi ruins, was a region of Yavin 4, a jungle moon orbiting the Outer Rim planet Yavin Prime.
The site comprised a group of stone temples that were built around 5000 BBY by order of the exiled Sith Lord Naga Sadow, and it was named after the Massassi warriors who once inhabited it and erected its monuments.
Tikal is an ancient Mayan citadel in the rainforests of northern Guatemala. Possibly dating to the 1st century A.D., Tikal flourished between 200 and 850 A.D. and was later abandoned. Its iconic ruins of temples and palaces include the giant, ceremonial Lost World (Mundo Perdido) Pyramid and the Temple of the Grand Jaguar. At 70 meters, Temple IV is the tallest pre-Columbian structure in the Americas.
Semuc Champey is a natural monument in the department of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, near the Q'eqchi' Maya town of Lanquín.
Also for those wondering why I look like Freddie Mercury. @helene_wab said my beard was getting too big so she made me shave it. This is what I came up with. #semucchampey #guatemala

- Paciencia mucha paciencia 🥶. 🥶🥶Nosotros alquilamos un coche con el cual nos movíamos de acuerdo a lo que nos decía una app (My Aurora Forecast) donde nos indicaba la probabilidad según el índice de KP y muy importante si el cielo esta nublado. Algunos días el índice era muy alto pero 100% nublado y no se lograba ver NADA.
Oh yes, I’ve set foot on my 6th continent: Africa 🌍 After a lay-over of almost a day in Paris (because of the French wanting to strike all the time), we’ve arrived in Tunis, Tunisia 🇹🇳 Many more places to come, but already loving the vibes of this vibrant city!
