Hostel Via Via. in LP on a shoestring 2003/04 parking inside. dorm rooms, costs 50 Cordobas (2 Euros, 3 Dollars) per Person. Little noisy till 11.30.

The Hostel Central, just off the Central Plaza in Calle Calzada has room for about 5-6 Dollar pP, safe parking inside. Its a colorful, esoteric, backpacker place.

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.
