Leaving Belize I had to pay an exit tax of US$20. I already knew about this and slipped out of the country quite quickly. Entry to Mexico was also very easy, as it always is. Just hand over my passport, fill out a short document and I’m in. I enjoyed my all too short time in Belize and I’m already cooking up a plan to return later in the year to have a better look around.
I only have a few short weeks of cycling left on this leg. I tossed up which route to take through Mexico. Option one: Head up the coast to Cancun and spend time relaxing or diving in the Caribbean; or Option Two: Cycle across the peninsula via remote Mayan ruins in a big loop back to Cancun. I have to end in Cancun to take my flight to Atlanta to hike the Appalachian Trail.
To be honest I just can’t decide. No one route was saying ‘Take Me’. So now that I’m back in Mexico, stay tuned to see which route I take.
