Anyone know the best route, etc?
A few options:
1. San Cristobal to Palenque (6 hours), Palenque to Flores/Tikal (8 hours), Flores to Belize City (5 hours).
2. San Cristobal to Xela (aka Quetzaltenango) (10 hours, I think - can't really remember), Xela to Antigua (5 hours), Antigua to Flores (9+ hours), Flores to Belize City (5 hours).
3. San Cristobal to Chetumal (12-13 hours), Chetumal to Belize City (about 4 hours, including border crossing).
