On Monday 20th, we decided to go to Tikal anyway, although Jayna still wasn't altogether well. We had a slow morning, checked out of the hotel and were picked up by our transport. We'd arranged for transport to Tikal on Monday, a guide in the morning of Tuesday, and a return on a bus of our choosing on Tuesday. We'd read that, for people arriving after 3pm to Tikal, entry for the following day was free. Our plan was to see both sunset ...
Halfway down the path as the sound of the howlers grew closer we spotted a keel-billed toucan in the trees above. Scrambling to take photos we barely noticed that the howlers were almost right above us. Even though we had seen howler monkeys throughout much of our trip, the sight and sound of the male howlers marking their territory is one of our favourite parts of the jungle and we were not disappointed.

Far superior to Chitchen Itza, which I visited in Mexico. The ruins were made up of a ...
... The bus trip north takes about eight hours (so a LA 9+), the same as from Antigua to Lanquin but is nearly half the price. Indeed a shuttle from here to Antigua is also half the price, showing up Antigua as the little hustling price fixing place it is.
The shuttle was with the same company I came in with, and we didn't get off to a great start as the bus struggled to get up a hill. We all had to jump off as he made multiple attempts, whilst ...
