Nicaragua

Our first night in Nicaragua was accompanied by the loud crowing of roosters until the early morning hours, which we were well familiar with from our time in El Salvador. Shortly after breakfast, a friend of the bar owner’s where we had spent the night Read More

One day, two borders, three countries

One day, two borders, three countries Completely relaxed, we left the wonderful, sandy Salvadorian beach early in the morning and drove southwards along the Carretera Interamericana for the first time. We weren’t attracted to Honduras, but we weren’t able to avoid it on our way Read More

Sun, sand and more

On the beach of Zonte in El Salvador, we were finally able to really relax, tank up on sun, and forget the rainy weeks in Belize and Guatemala. We found an excellent spot with two pools, a roof terrace, hammocks all over, and a tame Read More

Welcome to El Salvador

The border crossing between Guatemala and El Salvador turned out to be surprisingly easy. We had chosen the small border crossing of Angiatu, which is off the beaten track of the large main routes and thus rather quiet. There was no long line, no stress, Read More

Rio Dulce

In the Footsteps of the Mayas

Palenque is a popular goal for groups of travelers, so we weren’t very surprised at the many souvenir stands, guidebooks for the site, and the number of tourists. The ruins are located wonderfully in the jungle, and you can climb up the big, high structures. Read More

The Mountainous Country of Chiapas

Since we had taken more time everyplace than planned, it took us longer that thought to arrive at San Cristobal de las Casas, the most interesting city in Chiapas. San Cristobal is located in a high valley at an altitude of more than 6,560 feet Read More
