The basic procedures for crossing borders In Central America are as follows: First you need to get your passport stamped out of the country your leaving at migración (migration) and than get your vehicle permit and the permit for yourself cancelled at la aduana (customs). Upon entering the next country you get your passport stamped in at migración and than go to la aduana for permits for the vehicle and yourself. The amount of time and money you spend doing this simple process can vary considerably.
I drove my 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 from Northern Michigan down To San Jose, Costa Rica in the fall of 2008 to finish some dental implant work I had started there in July and to enrol in a Spanish Learning School for 3 weeks while doing a "homestay" with a Costa Rican family.
The border crossing information is designed to help the novice who may not speak very much Spanish or has never gone through border crossings in Central America develop some strategies to do so, thus saving time and money. The rest of the site's goal is to also inform and maybe entertain. The focus is not just about a motorcycle trip, rather it is about reflections on the different countries and people I experienced as well as why I sought dental care outside the U.S. and wanted to find a Spanish speaking school. It’s really about me learning how to do a blogging site while on the trip, working on becoming a better writer and the adventure of learning about Latin America. Simply put, I want to learn while perhaps helping others learn, remembering that it’s not always important as to what mode of travel you arrive in, but that you simply arrive.

From December 2009 through the spring of 2010 I'll be traveling by motorcycle from Boulder, Colorado through Mexico, Central America and South America.
The purpose of this trip is simple- to live in the moment, enjoy life, see the world, make some great memories and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.
