Mexico to Panama with 5 other riders leaving Tomorrow!!

February 29, 2016

I am putting the finishing touches on the motorcycle for my trip to Panama from my town of Leon, Guanajuato. I will be leaving on Tuesday, March 1st with four other Americans and one Canadian. I have no set time frame for this trip so we will see how long that it lasts.

We plan on visiting Guatamala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

Our plan is to camp on desolate mountains and on deserted beaches, stay in hotels and visit the many ruins and amazing places along the way. Eat lots of seafood and drink a fair amount of beer, And of course meet many interesting and strange individuals.

Tent, GPS, Sleeping Pad, Hammock, camping and cooking gear, rain gear, clothes and so many other little items you tend to need on a trip like this.

I will be posting pictures and lots of other things on my personal Facebook Page and my Life Of An Adventurer Facebook page. Please like and sign up on those pages. I am really going to try to do a lot of posting so that everyone can be with me and see all of these places. My father will be right with me in spirit.

I know that this will be a life changing and difficult challange but I welcome it! If you have any suggestions as to what to see or do please let me know. If you are on the road and are near where we are maybe we can meet up.

Stay safe and God Bless!

LifeofanAdventurer, for Honduras there are the Mayan ruins in Copan in the Central Western section of the country, some nice fish restaurants at Lake Yojoa and a nice waterfall just North of the lake. If you are coming from Guatemala, there is a border crossing just West of Copan along CA-11. Several decent hotels in the town of Copan itself or there is a Clarion not more than a couple hundred feet from the entrance to the ruins themselves.

If coming from El Salvador there is a crossing at El Amatillo in the South West part of the country, Not mush to see or do in Southern Honduras other than passing through to Nicaragua. If you cross at El Amatillo, possible to meet and greet and ride back to Tegucigalpa.

If you guys are looking for a break from the road, I have a house, a spare bedroom, 2 couches and of course the floor is available to all of you. Also have a garage and tools if any repairs or service are necessary. All the major motorcycle dealers (HD, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda) are available here with the exception of BMW and Ducati.

Stay a day or a week, up to guys, but always welcome.

My PM is [email protected] also on Facebook as Larry Helmich

Drop me a PM if your plan or think you might want to come this way to points further South.

Regards

Larry
