The return boat ride felt good after all that walking. We had a basic lunch at the onsite restaurant, and the piled back into the van to head to the day's second site.
A van ride and a shuttle ride took us to Bonampak, the second of the two sites for today. Much smaller and more compact than Yaxchilan, Bonampak is famous for the remarkably well preserved rock art and paintings inside the ruins. It was ...
