What a shame to blow thru some the prettiest countryside and mountains on the hemisphere in 5 days, most travelers exploring this region would allow 2-3 weeks per country, just to see highlights, national parks and places of interest, ruins and killer surf beaches or scuba diving...

What is the point of riding on the cargo truck infested, two lane, mountain road with no shoulders, known as the Pan Americans HWY or CA1- CA2, probably the worst route possibly, crossing borders every day?

Ughhh

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.
