Today we are celebrating 192 years since Guatemala declared independence from Spain. But it is not only my country the one celebrating. All of Central America used to be one confederation: Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.
After 229 years of Spanish domain, you can still find Spanish legacy all around: from language, religion, food and family traditions.
This month a torch of freedom will travel from Guatemala all the way to Costa Rica and it will be carried by thousands of central Americans with pride and honour

This is your last chance to vote for #Tikal: "The 8th Wonder of the World" @virtualTourist_ #Guatemala
This is your last chance to vote for the most beautiful ruins in Mesoamerica.
#Tikal is the city of echoes and it deserves international recognition.
The Mayans were a great civilization, they were the best engineers in the world (invented the aqueducts, calculated the most accurate solar calendar and studied astronomy in #Guatemala)
Why should you vote for Tikal? Because it is is one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centres of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization and it stands tall and proud today!

I was pleased to read this morning about this article by Lonely Planet:
Tikal is #1 of the "10 Best Things to Climb in the world!"
They researched over 1,000 ultimate experiences and Tikal came out #1!!!!
Followed by Namibia, Argentina, Scotland, Hawaii, Siria, Peru, India, Australia and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania!!!
wow, so if you live in Guatemala or never been there, take 2013 to put Tikal in your #1 list of wish travelling and make it happen!
