Our first accomodation fell through and we ended up driving around and found this beautiful little hotel right on the lake in Flores. Clean, pretty with a stunning view - what else could you want? It was under $50 Aus per night and the staff were lovely and very helpful.

We bought tickets to Tikal and inquired about our onward travel to Belize two days later and were taken aback to be quoted a disproportionately high figure for the distance. We realized ...
... to the van where we have picked up another two travellers bringing the van to capacity. We lose our extra legroom seat and journey becomes a lot more uncomfortable. We finally get to the sign telling us of another 11km to Lanquin. Finally, not long left. Except little did we realise it was completely dirt and gravel/Rock road from here only really big enough for two cars to Tetris their way past each other. The wet road didn't help the driving conditions and we are travelling ...
... the have a little picnic lunch when the torrential rain came pouring down again. It was a pretty nice experience, and ensured I would have the temple to myself. Although I was made a little nervous by the discovery of a mosquito nest in one corner. Around 3 o clock I started to head back towards the bus pickups when a downpour struck again. With no notice I found myself huddled under a tree with my poncho on and somehow managed to stay pretty dry, it was another quite ...
