Travel Blogs from Chetumal
It wasn't easy to get to the Caribbean. It was the longest and most expensive ride of this whole journey. We took a shuttle from El Remate to Chetumal for 275 GTQ. First they took us to the border with Belize where we had to pay the exit tax of 20 GTQ. The only way to get to Yucatán from Guatemala is through Belize as there is no road in the northern part of Guatemala. We drove through Belize for about five ...
Note: I typed this post last night (Friday) but then had internet issues again so could not post until today. Hi everyone. Well, I think we have the internet issue resolved.

... and Pam (a Canadian couple) took all our bags in their Land Rover and we walked round. Otherwise it would have been a nightmare walking with them all.

It will take us a few days to settle in but at last we have somewhere to call home for the next 11 months or ...
... The smooth roads are gone, most of the homes are in need of maintenance and its clear we are now in a poorer country.
I'll mention more about the hotel we're staying in here in Corozal another time. The same evening we arrived though, one of the brothers made a trip back to the hotel.
