Belmopan

A journal entry from: Cycle Mexico - Panama

July 23rd - 24th

Arrived in Belmopan after 23.9km. We asked where the town centre was and were told we were there! There was bascially nothing there. Just a few government buildings, banks, a bus station and a couple of shops. Belmopan is the capital city of Belize since 1961 after a hurricane destroyed much of Belize City. It has however never become the cultural centre of the country, only an administrative city. We didn't hear anything good about it. We only stayed one night and left after visiting the market the next day.

Total km = 536.1
