Ride to Guatemala - Accident in El Progreso

We leaved the finca Ixobel very early to reach Guatemala City. On the way we ate in the street a very good meal. The food is homemade, cheap and very good. A few kilometers later our friend Jeff (with the black honda) had an accident in a curve. He was to fast and flew out of the curve. Police and the ambulance was in a short time there. He broke his left shoulder and he has to stay for many weeks in the City El Progreso. We arranged everything for him to have a nice staying here. He will ride south in a view weeks.

Cascada Finca Paraiso and Rio Dulce

On the way to Guatemala City we visited a waterfall in the area of Rio Dulce. In the riverbehind the waterfall we saw some women who wash the closes by hand. The waterfall has a temperature of 70 degrees celsius. The pool under it was had around 30 degrees - perfect for a relaxed bath.

Finca Ixobel

The finca Ixobel is a old farmhouse and actual a hotel and hostel. The finkca is in the middle of a wonderfull forest. We hiked through the forest and swam in a natural water pond. Very nice place to relax and to dream.

Hello Belize! This was a very nice english speaking country with nice but very poor people. We had a huge problem with corrupt police who tried to get money from us because of insurance we dont have. A reporter who came along at this moment helped us - his best friend was Director of the Belize police. At the end of a long story three police man where arrested because of corruption. We were with pictures and full names in the radio (picture when we gave a interview), and the newspaper of Belize..... At the end it was a stressfull time but a experience. In Belize the batterie of my suzuki gave up. The first big Problem.

In Tulum we had two relaxing days on the beach. We had a Cabana 100 meters from the beach. In the city we met a nice guy from Cancun who travels with a 20 year old BMW R80 GS.
