Flores is a beautiful town and if you take time to look around you can get a very nice place to stay on the lake for a decent price. A must thing to do is take a boat ride around the lake at sunset. From Flores to Tikal is still a few hour drive but Flores makes a good home base. The market across the bridge is worth exploring also.

Couple more photographs from our recent trip...




Roni Martinez and our son when we visited Chiquibul Forest Reserve to see the Scarlett Macaw. Roni is director of field operations for Scarlet Six Biomonitoring Team working to save and protect Scarlet Macaws.

I'm glad you got up to Chiquibul to see the macaws! Did you camp there? Did Roni take you in the Red Nissan Pathfinder?

Erik, thanks very much for putting me in touch with Roni. We visited Chiquibul on a day trip, no camping. He took us in a very nice vehicle (which he rented for us), but I think it was a different vehicle from what you mentioned. On a separate trip, Roni drove my family (4 of us) up to Baldy Beacon for some fantastic views. He's a very skilled driver.

The work he and his team do in support of Scarlett Macaws is inspiring.

It took me a while to get around to reading this. But thanks for posting, it was a good read. Roni is one of Belize's shining stars. We love the work he does with the Scarlet Six.

Thank you Rig (Jerry) for all that you and the entire team do at Belize Bird Rescue.

The combination of such education, conservation and rehabilitation collective efforts across Belize by various individuals/ groups/volunteers and government makes a huge difference and is very inspiring. Progress is being made as a result.
