El Salvador/Hondurus border crossings
Cameron, based on my experience in 2004, (Cincinnati to Usuhaia and return), i reccommend by-passing El Salvador and leaving Guatamula entering Hondurus at El Florida (Copan). there's a new road from Chiquimula Guat. to El Florida. the road is good and the border crossing there was uneventful.
going south, 2003, i stayed on CA2 and the Amatillo crossing was the worst of my entire trip. avoid it. corrupt officials.
stay a few days and enjoy the beauty of the Copan Ruins....nicer than Tikal.
exit Hondurus into Nicaragua at Ocotal. there's a nice hotel in Ocotal just south of the border with a pool and restaurant.
