Key West (KEYW) to Tikal Guatemala (MGMM) is 648 nm or 5 hours at 130 kts (no wind), flying along the Cuban coast and then directly over Cozumel Mexico to Tikal. Cozumel Mexico or Belize are enroute fuel stops if needed.
We stay in Flores (Tikal) Guatemala (MGMM) for two nights at the Camino Real Tikal Hotel. There is a Saturday afternoon cruise on the lake and Sunday we spend the day at the Tikal Mayan ruins.
Monday we fly 145 nm to Guatemala (MGGT). The Guatemalan Aero Club has invited us to use their facility as we wait for everone to arrive. From there we bus 60 minutes to Antigua, the old Spanish Capital of Central American established in 1543. Two and a half days days in Antigua soaking up history and visiting the Finca Filadelphia coffee plantation for a coffe tour, zip lining and lunch. Our hotel is the delightful Camino Real Antigua.
Registration fee per aircraft is $500. All group rate savings for the hotels and tours will be passed directly to the Fly In participants. Fees at both airports are fairly minimal.
Your total costs for registration, hotels with internet and breakfast, airport transfers, tours and Mexican/Belize/Guatemala airport fees including departure taxes will be less than $2,200 for two people in one aircraft or even less if you do not need fuel stops in Mexico or Belize. Meals and fuel are additional. This is an incredibly affordable international Flying Adventure.
Join us if you can. This will be an excellent mid-winter break in a new destination loaded with history, culture, volcanoes, nature and fascinating flying. You will experience flying through Cuban, Mexican, Belize and Guatemalan airspace. I will provide comprehensive checklists and cockpit aids for the trip. I have done this six times in my C172RG. It is scenic, exciting and downright good fun.
