Re: New Cruiser

You'll love the Rio!

It gets HOT in the summer, and anchoring out is not advisable. Luckily the marinas are very reasonable. You might want to consider taking a "Cruise N Carry" AC unit, or window AC that fits into a dropboard. If not, at least have a good awning! We made this one right after returning from Guatemala.

BTW, BE SURE to go on a bus tour of the inland sites, like Lake Atitlan, Tikal, Antigua... It is pretty cheep, and REALLY beautiful!
