El Remate, Guatemala

A journal entry from: Cycle Mexico - Panama

July 31st - August 1st

After Yasmin had recouperated we cycled 18 km to the Guatemalan border. We passed through the border without incident, although the Guatemalans weren´t too keen on dirty bikes being wheeled through the new customs hall...

 On the Guatemalan side we caught a bus to a small town called El Remate from which we were going to visit the ancient Mayan city of Tikal. The bus ride was pretty hairy as we are not used to travelling on buses here. In El Remate we found a decent hotel to stay in before leaving very early the next day. 

Total km = 594
