... get a shuttle to Rio Dulce, and then a public bus to Flores, which would add 3 or so hours to our journey. So another long travel day awaited us, but thankfully it all ran quite smoothly (apart from the 4 slow hours on another bumpy dirt road).

But after about 10km, it became the narrow, pot-holed road without shoulders of our memory. Arrived Coba just as a busload of Italian tourists was unloading. We purchased our tickets and entered the park. Made the decision to NOT visit the close group of structures immediately but to proceed ...
