GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN
“Siete y media por la mañana,” the man at the Tierra Maya counter said, waving a slip of paper at me as I slid 600 pesos across the counter. The van would come for us at 7:30 AM.
I asked how long the trip would be. “Muy rapido! Siete horas, mas o menos,” he replied. Only seven hours? Splendid! I shook his hand and went to exchange Pesos for Quetzales before heading home to pack.
