Best border crossings in CA
 
For someone that is not going thru Belize, which crossing in N, G, H, CR and Panama would you recommend for the least hassle. Thanks

Mesilla for Mex-Guat

EL Florido near the Copan ruins for Guat-Hond. Very small crossing, used to dealing with tourists. Took maybe and hour, cost less than $20. 2003 info.

One i cannot recommend would be Penas Blancas (Nic/CR.Why do everything in one office when you can be messed around in 3 as with this place.Do not know what the alternatives are like.
The CR /Panama crossing on the East coast was a bit hairy on a fully loaded GS 1100.There are 2 railroad bridges with dodgy timber and not much to stop you falling into the water.It's worth it though if you want to visit the Bocas del Toro islands.

friends in San Salvador
 
Harleydan and others in San Salvador...., I have a friend in San Salvador who has expressed interest in "helping" foreign motorcyclists "stranded" in San Salvador due to the Honduras Coup. He speaks spanish, and will be a great resource if really needed, please honor the "stranded" aspect of his invitation.

P M direct to me for contact name and e-mail. See update on Honduras thread for latest international news.

I crossed at El Ceibo Chiapas, Mexico/ El Naranjo Peten, Guatemala (near Pelenque) in mid April 09 with no hassles. It's a tiny crossing. The road has only been in for 6 months or less (prior it was a 2 hr river journey). There is no Customs on the Guatemala side. The immigration guy said their is one in Flores but if we since we didn't plan on going their we didn't need to register the bike.

Also, as lonerider said. Mesilla for another Mex-Guate crossing is good.
