Time Coban to La Tecnica

How long does it take from Coban to La Tecnica by colectivo microbus? I assume you transfer at Sayaxche then again at El Subin.

Safety/flooding in coban Guatemala

About to take my son to coban next week. Any concerns about safety or flooding?

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · July 12, 2014
Is Coban safe for tourists?

I am traveling next week with my 11 year old son to Coban, Guatemala and i picked up two disturbing things online. So, I'm wondering if i need to rethink my trip and not go to Coban now.

Two concerns:
1) Drug cartels from Mexico in Coban. I should have seen this earlier, but i was just checking on the weather and the safety of the roads due to the heavy rain when i saw a few articles about the fact that cartels were killing people in Coban. Is this still happening? Is this something that happens off the beaten track or should tourists worry about this, should i change my plans?

2) Flooding. I expected rain in the rainy season, but when i looked at the last ten days, it looked like there were severe rains and i saw flood warnings in other parts of Guatemala. If anyone is visiting there now, or recently, it would be great to get a sense of if this is a real problem or just the typical intermittent rain this time of year.

Accommodation in Coban

Do you know which web site can I go into to book rooms in Coban. I have read the reviews and would like to book a twin room for 2 nights in September 2011 but can't find a web site that has rooms for Coban. I am particularly interested in Pension Monja Blanca or hotels around that price range.
Thank you
