The capital, Guatemala City, features the stately National Palace of Culture and the National Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.

My trip today takes me from Antigua, Guatemala to the Antigua, Guatemala to Pacaya Volcano, near Guatemala City. I basically had the idea of riding up as close to the volcano as possible, unfortunately, the clouds came over and I didn’t have a chance to get closer.
My trip today to Antigua, Guatemala took me on a long but brilliant journey starting in Flores, a region which I had a great time.

As I left for Chetumal from Ciudad del Carmen it was with some sadness, knowing that this would be my last long riding day in Mexico. I had fallen in love with just about everything related to this country, the people, communities, food and spirit of Mexico. Yes, I had seen all the news articles, been mocked by friends saying that my head would be separated from my body and all that stuff.
After one soaked night in Belize to was time to head to Flores, Guatemala, I awoke to a nice sunny day at the Lower Dover Field Station & Jungle Lodge, Belize and the host Madeline took me and two other guests o a little excursion through some of the ruins on their property.
