Biotopo Cerro Cahui

I got on the bus from Coban at 8:30 am and had to change at the San Antonio Crossroads. Then on to Sayaxche where I had some fried chicken and crossed the river on a boat, then changed Collectivos to get to Santa Elena. Then I had to change buses at the terminal and get one to El Remate, dodging rain bursts on the way.

This morning I got up after 6am and wandered down the hill, along the road past the lake, and then into the Biotopo Cerro Cahui trail, which cost me 40 Quetzals.
