In 1996 we took a road trip down to Belize starting from our house in Casa Grande, Arizona. The map below shows the route we took in 1996 in BLUE. We fell in love with the Yucatan area of Mexico and were mesmerized by the Mayan ruins we found. Sooooo - we saved up our vacation time for 1997 and 1998 and took the last three weeks of December 1997 and the first three weeks of January 1998 and took a major rode trip again to the jungles of the Yucatan, this time we included Guatemala and Honduras. The 1997/1998 Trip is in RED. You can click the map below to enlarge it to see the trips in more detail.
