So I jumped on board of this charter to Punta Barrios, Guatemala illegaly. I paid 40BZD for the one way trip. Next to me sat this lady who decided she needed to convert me to some religion or another. That drives me crazy. For 45 minutes I zoned out as this lady chirpped on.
Once we arrived the captain informed me i should wait awhile before i walk into the customs office, and tell them that i was leaving Guatemala today (for the first time of course).
The boat finally left for Belize and cost another 35BZD, but i was now legal! Forty five minutes later i was back at Punta Gorda searching for a bus to Belize City, but of course i just missed the last bus, which left at 3pm. Instead, i had to book a flight to Belize City in the morning to make my flight back to the states. Mo' money thrown away, 214BZD to be exact.
Knowing that i would stay another night in Punta Gorda, i booked another night at Nature's Way.
