Central America: Nov 2013 to Feb 014

Hi
I arrive in Guatamala in early November and will spend the first couple of weeks in Spanish lessons and buying and prepping a bike. Looking at a 200cc model as I don't have to buy extra insurance.

No firm destinations although a couple of hikes, diving and boogie boarding is on the agenda. Also interested in archaeological sites.

I plan to stay in modest hotels. My solo trips in New Zealand, Morocco, Turkey and Europe suggest a 3 to 4 hours ride day and then seeing the sites seems to suit.

I am a 64 year old New Zealander, enjoy a , a laugh and I am pretty laid back , enjoying just going with the flow.

If you're interested in a slower paced trip around CA get in touch

Regards

Peter
