Hey Deadly 99

Thanks so much! We are exploring Guatemala. There is so much to see here and tons of cool riding off the beaten track.

Monterrico Guatemala

Now for the BEACH. We set out from Antigua in the mountains and at a pleasant 24 degrees, but as we drove closer to the coast it was 35 degrees.

The drive here is nice and with very few of the dreaded tope. You pay a 5Q toll to cross the bridge over the canal in the mangroves to get access to Monterrico, which is a small town on the coast.

There are quite a few restaurants and small hotels. There is of course lots of seafood.

The sand is black and very fine. The ocean is like bathwater it is so warm.

The coast of Guatemala is straight without bays and there is only open ocean in front of you. This makes for s spectacular sunset.

TOMORROW WE FREE BABY TURTLES INTO THE SEA!

Turtles

There is a turtle-breading center near our hotel where they hatch the eggs that they rescue from the beach and they breed turtles too.

Each night you can release 1-day-old turtles into the sea.

bikes on a wooden boat thru the mangrove

The return route to Antigua required a 25 minute “ ferry” trip thru the mangroves to connect us back to the road from the beach at Monterrico.
