Hi there,

I've heard from quite a few of you who have been to Ian Anderson's Caves Branch (thanks for the photos, Marty -- they helped me convince my boyfriend we should go there!), so I'm very excited for our trip there in two weeks.

Here's my big concern, though -- we need to get from Caves Branch to Tikal. I've priced this out through a travel agent and it seems really expensive -- we just want to stay overnight there and then fly back to Placencia. Does anyone know how to get from Caves Branch to Tikal by bus, or how much this trip would cost if we just tried to do it by taxi? Any recommendations?

We do not speak Spanish, so we can only hope that things will go smoothly at the border if we try and do this on our own.

Thanks so much,
