The Rio Dulce
Skyus is currently berthed at Tortugal Marina in Guatemala for the hurricane season. We will be returning to the boat from Oregon in early November, 2006.
The boat is already in the heart of a great cruising location. The Bay Islands of Honduras and the islands and atolls of Belize are a short distance away.These are some of the best cruising destinations of the world! Panama is just around the corner.
The marina is 25 miles up the famous Rio Dulce (Sweet Water) river, one of the Caribbeans best hurricane holes. It is one of the few places approved by insurance companies for the storm season. Surrounded by mountains and located miles inland, no boats have been damaged in this area.
The Rio caters to cruisers.There are many marinas to choose from, at a cost that is a fraction of what you pay in the USA. Security is great, and cheap labor abounds for boat projects large and small. A marine railway is a mile away, and several boat chandeliers are close by. Virtually anything you need is available in Guatemala.
Finally, Guatemala is a beautiful country. Full of exotic highland villages, lakes, and Myan ruins, you can book inexpensive inland trips right at the marina.
