Yes, we’re going to ride back over them hills to Costa Rica, where we’ll look after a lovely hostel and pizzeria named ‘Funky Manza Pizza’ in Manzanillo, right on the beach on the Cariibbean coast!
We have cycled for 10 days from the border with Costa Rica in the north, Bocas del Toro, to Panama city!
We have arrived in Panama 3 days ago, and have posted many notes in the marinas, advertising ourselves as crew for boats heading north, to the USA or Canada.
We’ll be here another few days, fingers crossed!
Exploring Costa Rica has taken us from deserted beaches to towering mountains. Now we truly know we are deep in the tropics. Fruit from the side of the road, fish from mountain streams and berrys from lurking bushes. It’s been a enlivening two weeks. Now in the city, but heading soon towards ‘the sanctuary’, lets see what that may bring.
In Guatemala City we got to ride a ‘Critical Mass’ type of event named Bike Tune.
Some pictures of the journey below;
We have been learning lots in Guatemala, while working on building a recipricating roof model out of bamboo at the beautiful Lake Atitlan and making (bicycle) pedal powered machines with Maya Pedal.
We are continuing to ride south along the Pacific Coast to El Salvador with our Spanish bicycle friends Alex and Ina!
We spend the past 3 weeks working with a team of international volunteers and Guatemalan construction workers, building a sustainable home for Romeo and his family.
We raised 4.200 dollars for the water management system of this building through crowdfunding website Indiegogo, and we traveled to Guatemala by bicycle to help built!
We have cycled from San Cristobal.Mexico to Huehuetenango.Guatemala in a caravan of cyclists!
