We loved this tour...I was just sad I couldn't take all of the plants home.

I've always liked the Masewal trail, and recommend it to all my friends when they are visiting. It's great to do the trail, and then tube the Mopan river, which is right there, for a few hours. Don Beto Cocom recently passed away, but the trail is still being cared for, and some local guides are stepping up to do... More
