Parque Nacional Grutas de Lanquin

Early that evening before dark, we headed over to Parque Nacional Grutas De Lanquin - the local Caverns. Thanks to "StickFigure's" ride report, I knew what to expect for Lanquin and Semuc Champey. The caverns did not disappoint. We joined about a dozen other tourists. We knew there would be bats. We waited. After awhile we began to hear their chirps and see a few flitter by. All the lights were shut off for a few moments and when we started firing our cameras, you could see the bats. Thousands of them. Flying within inches of our heads.






Dinner that evening: Fried chicken, salad, tortillas, and fries, cost 30Q ($4.20) . At least I think it was chicken, it may have been bat.
