Thanks to our SPOT Satellite Messenger you can see our exact Trans-Americas Journey road trip driving route through Guatemala during the month of April 2011.

We started the month by finishing up our trek to the El Mirador Mayan archaeological site in the very north of Guatemala. After the trek we recuperated in the island town of Flores on Lake Peten Itza then headed down to Sayaxche which was the jumping off point for a boat trip up Lake Petexbatun to the Aguateca Mayan site. We also visited the Mayan sites of Ceibal and Dos Pilas.

From there we headed south down to the gorgeous colonial town of Antigua in central Guatemala where we enjoyed Semana Santa, the largest Easter Week celebration in the Americas.
