Day long tour...long drive, off beaten path on border with Guatamala ....actually boat down Usumachinta R. dividing MX & Guatamala
Pricey (550p=$45 US) but really no other way to do it in one day - 6am to 6:30pm, incl brkfst and lunch...both good, so we felt it was good value for the $$. Nice group, most in20-30s w/ one Italian mom an exception - daughter is guide in Italy. Others incl Norwegian fellow-runs dive company in Oslo of all things, a KeeWee gal who quit job of 5 yrs as mkting manager (60 hrs+ a week), and a recent busness graduate from Holland. Had a fun time chatting and seeing the jungle ruins in this remote area. No rain but cloudy - perfect for hiking in the jungle, 40 min boat trip to Yaxchilan and back reminded me of Mekong River trip w/o jet boat excitement tho.
Saw a small crok and gela monster on bank as well. Two stayed in border town Flores to cross into Guatamala tomor, 5 of us returned w/ lots to remember (see pics).
