We then headed south to Hopkins where we had decided to go for a night. We had not booked anything so drove into town on a wing and a prayer. The drive was beautiful. On one side you can see the Maya mountains rising above the land. The weather was quite moody when we did our trip and there also happened to be a bush fire so it all looked particularly dramatic. Driving through the jungle is also an experience to be remembered with the gigantic plants and trees towering over you as you pass. It makes you feel like you have arrived in the land of the giants.
