Flores to Tintal, El Mirador Basin

Sun rays flooded through towering Cohune palms and bathed Lake Peten Itza in a muted apricot glow. Three hours and 62 rutted and muddy km later, Antonio and I arrived at Carmelita, his home village inhabited by 400 or so Itza Maya.

You are a stranger in a strange land.   And then, you find yourself stepping over the threshold into another family’s life.  You’re…
