Any hope the bike will be free soon? Has it at least stopped raining?
If the weather is not too miserable, go out to the San Blas islands and hang out with the Kuna. You can even rent your own private island for something like $20/night. On the other hand, camping in the rain is not much fun even on a Caribbean paradise island
Drifter: Most of the problems I've heard about are around Lago Atitlan. There is a short and very rough stretch of dirt between San Pedro and Santiago that slows down vehicles enough that pedestrians with guns can easily stop vehicles. Highway robbery happens elsewhere too but (as I've heard) it tends to be around the tourist areas - just don't stop for anyone or anything.
