... be able to relax and see something of the countryside.
It was only in the 1980’s that a paved road crossed the El Peten region. Since then this lowland jungle area had been subjected to severe deforestation and we could see much evidence of this on our way to Flores. It was clear that we weren’t going to arrive in 3 hours.
