During the summer of 1998, Central America was on the radar. More specifically, it was a tour covering the Mayan culture starting in Mexico with the main sights of Teotihuacán, Palenque, Chitzen Itzá, Uxmal moving on to Xunantunich in Belize, the magnificent sights of Tikan in northern Guatemala and all the way down to Copán i Honduras. Guatemala was by far the most colorful of the four countries. I stayed at Finca Isobel in Poptún on my way to Guatemala City. The Finca was a well know back-packers place during the 80-ies, run by an American couple for many years. I later heard the they had been killed during the civil unrest in the 90-ies.
