El Remate

Being so close to Tikal, we were expecting to find more going on in El Remate. In reality the village is nothing more than a strip of road with a couple of shops and hotels, basically deserted during the day. We couldn't even find a ride up to Tikal in the afternoon -- apparently all of the vans leave early in the morning.

Road traffic is so light in the afternoon that this dog felt fine napping in the middle of the road. We nicknamed him "Speedbump."
