- This trip comes with a couple of warnings. There are some very long days and early starts involved but that is inevitable in view of the distances covered. I felt sorry for the driver on a couple of occasions as I'm sure he was working beyond his legal hours.
Having said that the trip was excellent. Ana is very knowledgeable and explains the sites very clearly. She obviously loves her subject!
The highlights of the trip included the Anthropological Museum in Mexico City. I could have spent days in that place! The boat trip down the Sumidero Gorge, and the evening paseo in the squares in Oaxaca with the music and dancing. Such atmosphere.
The highlight and the purpose of the whole trip for me was the visits to Palenque and of course Tikal. I did tell a friend that if you aren't into archaeology you are on the wrong trip!
