Rio Dulce Information

I am seeking info on life in the Rio Dulce area of Guatemala. In particular haulout and storage rates. I have written to Ram Marine and have not receive an answer.
Also would like some info on life in general such as expenses, food, security, mosquitoes,:-), in other words, any info.
Thanks

Stephen Pavlidis recently came out with a new cruising guide for the Northwest Caribbean, which I believe covers the Rio Dulce area as well. Island Hopping Shameless Plug Book Page
That will likely have the marina/haulout info that you seek.

Both Pavlidis' book and Freya Raucher's cruising guide cover the Rio Dulce.

Re: Rio Dulce Information

Take a look at Pilot Charts for the area...the odds of you having E winds in April are 50-60% across the entire Carib basin. NE winds make up most of the remaining 100%.

Earlier in the season you could play the wind shifts on cold fronts to make easting, but by April, fronts are unlikely...just steady Trades blowing against you.

Rich -

I had Tempest (CSY 44) hauled out by RAM last month (Oct) for a hull inspection. It was $306 USD. Sorry, don't know their storage rate.
