Geocache Description:

Placed in 2001 and the first physical physical cache in the country! Going to Guatemala, bring your GPS. This was the first one in Guatemala, but not the last I hope. You get to see some of the most impressive Maya-sites if you take this cache. There might be a small entrance fee


This cache was placed in the stone age of geocaching and well before the rule of vacation/maintained caches. HELPING out would render a gold star, a thought in the GC-heaven, a mention and a cold beer in Sweden if you ever go hunting there! MANY thanks in advance /BUDA

This is our first cache in Guatemala. Visiting the beautiful city of Flores is a dream. You will probably make a trip to the "ruins" one of your days here? Bring your GPS then and take the canopy tour on your own :)
For nice lodging in Flores, try the upper new rooms at the Villa De Lago, a bargain for 150 Q with TV, air-con and nice view of the lake (2001). We had too little time to spend here, sad to say, we “must” move on to Belize tomorrow and then in a couple of weeks go back to Sweden, Europe.
We can also recommend the Canopy Tour. Going on wires across the jungle is really worth the $25 (2001).
The cache is (from 2008) a small tupperware containing a logbook pen and some other items
BRING LOOOOOOOTS OF WATER!!! This is a H-O-T place!!!!

Please help me MAINTAIN this very old cache, the only physical in Guatemala. IF you have the chance of helping me out in the area you will become my new HERO!!!

Updated 2012: "GPSMartyx" helped me to restore this one. Now its a container again. The original hiding place was a large tree. But now it's over TEN years ago I was there so the tree might be fallen down... ;) THANKS to: G-O-CACHERS and then NLT for helping out

Update June 2014: Cacher "dillemarco" reports updates of the cache as of today, I changed the ratings accordingly to 2/2,5. Maps can give you an idea.

Update May 2015: Thanks to cacher "cacheditin" the cache is still alive! I feel so happy for that. Many thanks!

Update 2017: Cacher ´"oranje.cph" helped out with a box big as a lunchbox. Many thanks!

Update Feb 2018: Cacher "Highlands_Guy" put a new shiny brown box at the location. Many thanks!

Find...

  • Feb 2008 cache container (not there anymore)Thanks to G-O-CACHERS the Hot Jungle cache is up running. This is the container hidden.
  • Semi-SpoilerSo you don't HAVE to bring a machete these days. When the cache was hidden this path was a SMALL foot-path only. Today it looks like its possible to do a drive-by-logging?
