Finishing Our Trip in Captivating Cuba

CUBA | Monday, 21 Jan 2013 | Views [390]

It was nice not to have to rush on our last morning in Mexico even though we had a plane to catch.  A plane?  After 6 months and over 6800kms by land and sea it was time to take to the skies.  We’d long been curious about Cuba and ... Read more >

Magical Mexico

MEXICO | Wednesday, 16 Jan 2013 | Views [276]

The boat ride from Caye Caulker in Belize to Chetumal in Mexico is advertised as a 90min trip – absolute rubbish!  It took about 20mins to reach San Pedro where we went through a long, tedious immigration process to exit Belize.  It wasn’... Read more >

Breezing Through Unbelizably Breezy Belize

BELIZE | Wednesday, 9 Jan 2013 | Views [227]

We were up bright and early to grab some breakfast before hopping onto the 7.30am tourist shuttle (Q160) to Belize City but unfortunately, the driver wasn’t.  We lurked on the guesthouse’s doorstep for over an hour before our transport ... Read more >

Towering Treasures in Tikal

GUATEMALA | Friday, 4 Jan 2013 | Views [272]

Having taken a huge, largely unnecessary detour to Rio Dulce / Livingston it was time to get back on track and head up north.  Fortunately the morning ‘tour’ boat didn’t attempt to hang around on route so we were soon back in Rio ... Read more >

Not Such a Sweet Time on the Rio Dulce

GUATEMALA | Wednesday, 2 Jan 2013 | Views [692]

It would have been all too easy to lounge around in San Pedro La Laguna for another day but fortunately we’d already bought our shuttle tickets.  There was no way we were going to waste Q180 a head so we were up, packed and at the tour office ... Read more >

Quality Trekking in Quetzaltenango

GUATEMALA | Monday, 31 Dec 2012 | Views [836]

Much to our delight the locals kindly shorten this to Xela (pronounced shel-la); a derivative of the ancient name for the town.  It was time to move away from Christmas indulgence and lazy travelling and get back to using chicken buses.  Here ... Read more >

A Lazy Christmas on Lago de Atitlan

GUATEMALA | Thursday, 27 Dec 2012 | Views [706]

They really do tempt you to be lazy over here and use the shuttle bus instead of jumping on the good old chicken buses. Considering it was Christmas Eve we decided to splash out ($10) as there was still a niggling worry that the buses would stop running ... Read more >

Getting to Antigua Guatemala

GUATEMALA | Sunday, 23 Dec 2012 | Views [236]

Our 6am tourist shuttle bus ($20) to Antigua duly picked us up and a mere 20mins later we were at La Florida and preparing to cross over into Guatemala.  We were the only vehicle trying to cross at that time and it was a pleasure to go through the ... Read more >

Hopping Through Honduras, but is wasn't the End of the World!

HONDURAS | Saturday, 22 Dec 2012 | Views [152]

We only ended up visiting Honduras because it was in the way!  We’d found a route from Nicaragua to Guatemala whereby we’d avoid the capital cities of San Salvador, El Salvador and Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  This route also favoured ... Read more >
