Flores and the hanging bridges

The town of Flores is a pretty little island, with colorful shops and restaurants and a gorgeous lakeside area. The highlight of our walking tour, though, occurred when we reached the square in front of the church at the top of the hill. While having some really good ice cream and sitting in the shade under some small trees, we heard a man playing the guitar and singing for a few of his friends, who were enjoying the warm afternoon - as well as a few local beers. The scene was idyllic, and we stayed there for almost an hour. Oh, and the ice cream was great!

We also took a side trip to the canopy bridges nearby at Ixpanpajul, where we were able to cross some cable bridges VERY high above the jungle floor. It was an excellent experience, but it, too, involves a somewhat long uphill hike through the jungle, so if you go, wear hiking boots, and bring your camera. You can buy water at the 2/3 point high up in the mountain, and can even stretch out on some hammocks to take a break.
