Hi!

Has anyone been to Guatemala or Belize in august? Is the weather so bad that it interferes with the trip? Should you book accommodations in advance? I'v heard there are thunder storms in Guatemala in august, how bad is it?

thanks!

Noa :)

Hi,
Yes I was there in July-August 1990 for a trip from Mexico-City to Cancun through Chiapas, Guatemala and Yucatan. Everything was going fine ... until we had this Hurricane Diana in August !

It came when I was I Tulum on the Atlantic coast in Quintana Roo. And there you have nothing to do except waiting. It took 2 days to go away. It killed about 100 people and caused a lot of damages (30 000 people homeless).

So take care of the hurricanes season!
Alain
