This was our last morning on the ship. Immediately after breakfast it was tender to the shore and off to Flores Airport for our charter flight off into the wilds of Guatemala. No jets here, small airport and we were divided into three small (think propeller with a max carrying capacity of 40 pax)
The flight wasn’t all that long, but significantly bumpy. The landscape along our route from what I could see from my seat in the very last row of the aircraft was extremely rolling hills as was the airspace above it compounded by clouds. Lots and lots of clouds.
Lunch was much appreciated followed by almost an hour ride to our hotel – Camino Real Tikal. The final choice in the afternoon was bird walk or boat ride. I went for the boat. One of the guys decided he needed some exercise so he went with the birders. I just chuckled. He came back shaking his head – “we walked 15 feet then stood around. Then we walked not even a block more and stood around for twice the length of time as the previous stop.” Hello? This is a bird WALK it is a BIRD walk…
Dinner was a lovely buffet. First decent dinner in days.
