I swear I saw a jaguar on the trip back to Remate. Do a trip of the lake and stop at La Lancha, Francis Ford Coppola's slum. Any questions let me know, also if you're hiring.
How long ago were you renting bikes? I've been here 3 years but CATours has been around since about '99... hadn't heard anything about rentals up there. How'd the Yumbos hold up? Had a friend buy one to ride to Costa Rica with me last year and it was a POS, but I kind of figured that from the beginning.
Last time I was up in Peten, I did the lap around Lago Itza - not a bad ride. Good rope swing near Flores!
