It's the end of the trip. Getting to Cancun has been pretty easy, except for part of 100km and being lost in the jungle between Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Tulum, a road without people, with horrible rains, but then we made up for it with two days of rest in the beautiful beaches of Tulum. The area suffered greatly from the 2005 hurricanes, but it's getting back on its feet and reopened to tourists. There are very few people on the beach, because of the hurricanes, but for me that is best. Other cities are very Americanized, Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Yucatan I preferred to continue to the city of Merida. On the way, there were no trucks, it is a small road, pleasant, with many cenotes, where I stop at least once a day to be able to enjoy a good bathe. Is traditional Mexico for us all to carry our dreams, with colored gowns, small village churches and the wonderful ruins of Chichen Itza. I had no problem to assemble my tent, asking people for the best place to stay, some open their door or at least the door of their garden. Then I went back to Cancun, to disarm the bike, put it on the plane, direction to Europe!
The end of Belize was fine, but the food was much more expensive than in Guatemala. For the same plate of rice and beans, we paid a lot more, and the people are not quite as warm. Also, you need to plan lodging a little more carefully so as not be stranded in the middle of nowhere once night falls. . Wilder's all, a night to sleep with a snake and a scorpion, it was the best night of my trip ... it is right at Mexico´s border, but I couldn´t get more than 30 days with my bike, so I had to shorten my trip, ending in Yucatan instead of Mexico City . The road is long, almost a highway, I'm on the road emergency. A busload of tourists to tell me I'm crazy. And soon, the village of Bacalar appears, and another road much more sympathetic to the edge of the cenotes and lagoons. Cenotes are pools of water, which were once underground, but the porous rock fell and now they are outdoors. You can bathe, after a day of bike is paradise. Food is much more varied, healthy, tasty and inexpensive in Belize.
