Ah, Tikal. Go; it's sitting there right now waiting for you. Go now! No seriously, what are you waiting for, it's just sitting there, not too far away, waiting for you. You can take buses there. Get a passport walk across the border and take a bus to Mexico city. You'll end up at the norther bus station, take a taxi to the southern bus station and go to the Belize/Mexico border. Spend a couple of days in Belize, check out the islands, and then catch a bus to Tikal, spend a couple of days, look at everything, have the time of your life and then decide where to go next. Sure you could just go home, but now that you are out, why not keep going. Check out the rest of Guatemala, then keep going to Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and then Panama. Got to Panama city and stay at the Hotel Ideal. Walk to the Coca-Cola restaurant , get pancakes and enjoy the syrup. Then go to the Titillating airport, catch a plane to San Blas and stay at the Hotel San Blas with SR. Burger. Oh, and avoid Colone unless you want to get robbed.
