Honduras Border Crossing info from 11/12
ok I/we crossed into Honduras about a month ago (on Nov 12). One of the best roads/rides of the trip was on the road mentioned in the prior posts that was shut down. Here it is, Ill say it again (it was posted in my other thread in the general travel forum)...the road (CA11) from Vado Hondo (turn left off of CA10) to the border crossing at El Florido was SUPERB. I HIGHLY Reccomend it after reading the BS in other threads on corruption. There was maybe 40-50 people around, very civil, people admiring the bikes (heck... kids offered to clean our rims), no "helpers" around or needed. The cost for the crossing was 630 lempiras ($35 US)...to exit Guatemala and enter Honduras took less than 30 minutes nice and relaxed and secure. My KLR is sitting on the island of Roatan at the moment taking a break until I return in spring.....and I was able to have them give the entry permit for the bike for 120 days No Problemo...the road was excellent and all asphalt all the way to san Pedro Sula, so don;t sweat it (there was maybe 100 feet of a mud wash across the road at one point). We went on to La Cieba before getting a ferry to Roatan. No problems.....
I can email photos of the crossing if anybody wants em
life is good, always free flow!
