COPA Central America Adventure

by on Mar.26, 2015, under Flying

A group of nine planes, three leaving from Key West and six from McAllen Texas,with 20 COPA members and friends on board left for Tikal in Guatemala on March 14, 2015. Joyce, my brother Mike and I, left Hilton Head Island, SC on Friday March 13 to join the group leaving from Key West. Our planned route of flight is depicted below:

Our return would retrace our route, with the Texas contingent flying through Mexico on their return. In total our route would cover Thirty five hundred and ninety miles. Our stops would be in Belize City, Belize, Tikal, Guatemala, Liberia, Costa Rica and Golfito, Costa Rica. Our first flight to Key West was uneventful. Joyce, Mike and I checked into our hotel then had lunch at the Southern Most Beach café with a flock of spring breakers. We then met our Key West traveling companions for a flight briefing conducted by Peter Storer, and then had a delightful dinner at Louie’s Backyard an excellent restaurant on the water. This trip is starting off right. Tomorrow we take off for Belize City where we will clear customs and refuel then fly on to Tikal.
