I've even asked the Guatemala facebook page for info. They directed me to their government immigration site, but I can't find the info there either. When I told them that, they didn't get back to me. I did find a few sites that mentioned fees, but nothing that had what I felt was updated info. The best I can figure out is that we have to pay 18 quetzales ($2.50) for fumigation, 160 quetzales ($21) for the car import fee, and maybe 10 quetzales ($1.30) for a tourist permit depending on the mood of the border guy.
Of course there are a lot of people at the border looking to take away as much (or at least a little) of your money as possible. So it helps to know what the official fees are so you don't get taken advantage of.
Anyhow, the research continues.
In the meantime, we continue to enjoy relaxing in Puerto Escondido. Yesterday, we took Mary, Alfredo, and the kids down to the main beach. Went for a walk to a playground for Nataly, sat in the shade because it was baking hot, and then had an ice cream.
Nice family photo. Mary, Nataly, Gael, Alfredo.
Nice playground for Nataly.
And then we took them back home so that we could attend the Superbowl party at the Sunset Point Resort Hotel. It ended up that the party was just the guys because all of the ladies went out for dinner. So Ruth enjoyed a rare evening out with the girls while the guys watched the game.
Turns out we had a minor earthquake in this area around 11:30pm last night. We had just gone to sleep and I had dropped off right away and didn't feel a thing, but Ruth felt it.
We're going to go off and research all of the RV parking possibilities here in Puerto Escondido. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post with all of the details.
