    Default Post Rally Planning - Belize and Guatemala

    As most of you know, because of logistics and timing, we think it's better to end the Rally in Mexico near some ruins that will not be overwhelmed with bus and tourists...we have a lead on an awesome location, right next to a lake and near some great Mayan ruins that are not overdevelopped.

    But in the unlikely event that the world does not end on 12/21, we are planning to keep going into Belize and Guatemala.

    I am thinking we could setup camp in Belize to spend Christmas, and then perhaps even celebrate NYE in Tikal.

    I am curious to gather your input - who's interested in exploring some more?

    At this point I am not to sure I will even be going. If I do though, continuing south is certainly on my "to-do" list.

    My wife and I will definetly be continuing south after the rally.

    I'd like to follow the tracks of unURBAN Adventures thru the jungle between Tikal and Uaxactun but not willing to go at at alone.

    We are undecided at this point whether to cut back across to the pacific or head south, but it seems like south through Belize/Guatemala might be easier than backtracking...
    Either way, we will likely getting out of the cancun area as fast as we can and back to beaches without the masses!

    In keeping with tradition my career continues to get in the way my dreams of extended vacations.
    Back in May it seemed like everything would work out but now as the date gets closer things have changed and I'll have to be back in VA sooner than I'd like.
    We'll probably duck into Belize after the the rally is finished but I don't think we'll be headed any further south.
    Maybe we'll be able to live the dream after the 2013 Maya Rally.

    Originally I planned on heading to Belize as well. But do to work constraints I will need to head back towards the US a day or so once the Rally is over. Is anyone else also doing this? Would be nice to travel with a group back to the boarder
