Great Picture of Guatemalan Stop Sign

I think this photo pretty well captures why you have to be careful if you drive in Guatemala.  The roads are definitely busier than Belize and many of them aren't in the greatest condition.  If you are looking into driving a rental from Belize into Guatemala its best to check with the rental agency to see if there are any issues with taking the car outside of Belize.  Crystal Auto Rental is the main rental agency in Belize and they allow cross border traffic to Tikal, Flores and Peten in Guatemala.

I took this photo in Puerto Barrios, Guatemala.  I was walking along looking for a place to get breakfast and when I saw this stop sign I just had to take a picture.


About This Blog

This blog is dedicated to Belize and Central America from the Yucatan peninsula to the edge of the Mosquito Coast in Honduras. After spending a lot of time in Belize I've picked up on a lot of info that isn't in the guidebooks and this blog is my chance to record it.

After travelling extensively, I've come to realize that Belize really is a country like no other. Its a place with geographic diversity from the coral reefs to the Mayan mountains, and cultural diversity from the ancient mayans to the garifuna. All it takes is one ride along the bumpy dirt road on an old school bus in Belize to really appreciate the fact that you are in a place like no other.
