Antigua, Guatemala

Filed Under:
We entered Guatemala in the morning and met a friendly man, George, at the border. George has lived in California for over 20 years, but is originally El Salvadoran. We crossed the border together, since we were both importing our vehicles into Guatemala and had to go through the same paperwork process at the border. […]

We awoke early this morning to beautiful mist in the valley where we were camped beside the river. After a breakfast of a huge pancake surrounding fruit, granola, yoghurt and honey, we headed off to Coban – two hours away – with Lisa and Ben. We went out for chinese lunch, and then dropped off […]

We were unable to get an early start this morning as planned, and thus did not make it across to Honduras. We awoke this morning to discover that all of our gear that was strapped to the roof of the truck had been stolen in the night. That includes our 2 fold-up camping chairs, a […]

Filed Under:
We left our gorgeous lake this morning and headed south towards some hot springs that we have read about which are located near the largest lake in Guatemala, Lago de Izabal. We had to stop along the way to get our exhaust reconnected (2 bolts sheared off – it wasn’t anything major), although one of […]

Lago Peten Itza, Guatemala

We crossed into Guatemala this morning after going to see 1,000ft falls this morning in Belize (not all that exciting, as the fog set in just as we arrived and it was hard to see the water!). The border crossing was a breeze, and before we knew it, we were heading into the Guatemalan interior. […]

The market was a traditional indian market with lots of different stalls selling textiles, masks, clothing, food and carved handicrafts. We spent a few hours walking around the market and then made our way to Panajachel – a small town […]

Semuc Champey, Guatemala

We went to the hot springs this morning (the hot waterfall) only to discover that it wasn’t all that hot! It rained alot last night, and so although the falls were hot, the river below the falls was quite cold because a cold river joined it right beneath the falls. Quite disappointed and intent on […]

Todos Santos, Guatemalan Highlands

Wednesday, January 7, 2004
Filed Under:
We eagerly set off for Todos Santos high high high off in the Guatemala highlands. We were eager to get away from the tourist trap places and head off to the small town that we randomly picked off the map. We drove up and up and up to about 3,700m elevation. We took a wrong […]
