Mexico, All or Multiple City Thread

Guadalajara -hostel de la maria (this name varies on different flyers and sites, try hostal maria too). there are apparently only two hostels in the city centre. the other one i went to first is on the first floor, so not much chance of a parking space. maria has a courtyard out the back you can park in, but you need to get up two steps to get there (my klr was fine, but i doubt a regular/sporty would be too happy scraping its tubes). otherwise park in the little square outside, you can back it into a corner and put your steering lock on. I think this one was 170pesos (aug06)

Mex city -hostel amigo #61 on the street ´isabel la catholica´ in downtown is awesome and cheap (around 130pes i think). they ´dont normally allow bikes in´ but i guess they were fine with mine for a few days. i don´t think they´d have room for two though. phone them MEX 52 55 55 123464 . these guys give you included breakfast and dinner, and free internet

Casa Bertha, Callejon Tombora
Family-run hostel. Juan is incredibly friendly & helpful. Incredible views from the roof-top kitchen area. Good WiFi, free drinking water.
Single 160 Pesos, with TV/bathroom 190 Pesos. Bike-parking for one bike only! It is difficult to find, but a cab-driver should be able to guide you there for about 25 Pesos (small city).
To get from the small plaza to the parking spot (in a tiny alley in front of the hostel), you'll have to go up some individual 'steps' and take panniers off, but it's not a problem really. (Cars can't get there - ask the cab driver to direct you before you pay him).

It sounds complicated but it isn't. And it's TOTALLY wirth it.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
