    My mother and I land at BZE at 11:05am in mid-October. We'll have slept overnight at Atlanta Intl., so the trip doesn't sound too hard that day. I will be renting from Crystal Rental Cars. I figure that claiming bags and getting the car could take an hour and a half. So if we get on the road by 12:30 and find a spot for lunch, it will then be 1:30 before we are actually enroute to Alta Hun.
    At this point I'd like to know how far the drive from BZE area is and how long we should plan for walking about the ruins at Alta Hun.
    Our plans ultimately will take us to San Ignacio, and I'm wondering if seeing Alta Hun after the flight and basically acclimating to the heat, will be condusive to finishing the afternoon with our drive to San Ignacio.
    How long would that drive be realistically, from Alta Hun to San Ignacio?
    If we stay overnight after Alta Hun, would the Black Orchid Resort be a good logistic choice? Thanks for your thoughts!
