Exactly the Trip I Wanted

We had a great trip – everything we did was perfect- exactly the trip I wanted – Even the Zoo was nice.

ATM cave – amazing, Caracol (Myan ruin) – fantastic – very remote.

Hidden Valley Inn – great place (also remote) – nice staff, Butterfly waterfall  (on property is also great)

Xanadu – San Pedro (Ambergris) very nice – great staff. Snorkeling was some of the best in the world – I have traveled a lot.

When in remote areas or the Zoo – Bug spray is a must.

Thank you for your help arranging this trip.
