scotq’s Travel Diary

Location: Flores, Guatemala

MapWe took the road less travelled and headed from Chichi by chicken buses and minibuses to Coban which took us from Chichi to Quiche to Sacapulas to Uspantan and across a mostly dirt road where our progress was halted for 30 minutes by a mudslide and finally arrived in Coban. It was a wonderful town where we relaxed, ate well, visited a coffee plantation and then took and amazing all day adventure to the waterfalls of Semuc Champey and the caves of Grutas Languin. Absoluitely incredible, words don´t describe it so check out the pictures. I will try and post the cave pictures soon but my current internet connection sucks. We are now in Flores and head off to the most amaizing Mayan ruins of Tikal and then onto Rio Dulce and Livingston. I will try to post again from there, but may not be able to until we head to the Copan ruins.
