2008 El Salvador + Guatemala

¡Hola! [OH-la]  "Hi"

Well, after getting married in Tulum, MX and hanging out for a week, we are heading out for Central America for over 2 weeks on a "Honeymoon" ... of sorts (Cowles style).  We are going to tromp through El Salvador for a few days over the Ruta-de-Flores. There isn't a whole lot of tourism there, so 5 days should feel longer than 5 days. Then we make our first International  boarder crossing by bus and head into Guatemala for the majority of our trip. There is more to see and do there including the Ruins of Tikal and the volcanic Lake Atitlan. We are looking forward to roughing it a little  after our cushy little week in Tulum.
