The road to Tikal. From Lanquín to Flores.
All day in a shuttle, 17 of us. Not room for another person in that shuttle.
It was hot. It was long. It took us to Petén, where, sadly, much of the tropical forest had been deforested to make way for new settlements — farms and ranches mostly. I myself prefer tropical forest.
We had to cross a great river along the way. In the video below we’re being ferried across the river because there was no bridge.
