After we got back from the Bio-Itza reserve, we took a trip with Jose and Aderito to the ruins of Yaxha. It's smaller than Tikal and much harder to get to. As a result, there were very few people there, despite its recent claim to fame is as the setting of season eleven of Survivor.
We had an excellent view of a family of monkeys......and Matt earned himself the nickname Cazador de Mariposas for his attempts to photograph the many butterflies.
Sorry mom, but riding in the back of a pickup is a very typical method of transport in Guatemala.
