Sounds like a good idea. I think we'll try to stay inland 3 days during our second week. There's some really cool sounding overnight tours of Tikal.

Thank you. It's just a matter of getting my bearings on time, location, etc. Things are really starting to click now.

One other question I had re: diving is are there any dive companies that practice "look but don't touch." I noticed a lot of the posts and pictures on this site talk about and have photos of divers that were handling the marine life. I was shocked of a photo of a diver on board a boat holding a conch shell, which I hope they threw back into the water.

I was a little surprised by this. We're very firm believers in the "look but don't touch" philosphy and would feel much better about using a tour operator that practices the same.
