Route Through Honduras Around El Salvador
My wife and I are currently passing through Costa Rica en route to Panama.
We will be turning around at Panama and riding back to Canada. On our way back through Central America we plan on visiting Copan and Tikal in Guatemala then Belize before re-entering Mexico at Chetumal.
The Honduras/El Salvador border was a headache going south and El Salvador was not too appealing.
We are thinking about taking a route through Honduras via Tegucigalpa, La Esperanza, Gracias, Santa Rosa De Copan, La Entrada and exiting into Guatemala at Copan. On my map it looks like it is all paved and fairly straight forward.
Has anyone taken this route recently? The information we are seeking is around safety, road conditions and the availability of hotels.
Any input would be appreciated.
