Don't know where you are now, but I'm in Guatemala now.
Have finally left and I am now in Guatemala and happy to be out of Mexico. The first part of traveling in Mexico was fine and I didn't get killed nor robbed. I had to pay $448 just to bring my motorcycle in. This is to prevent the entry and sale of vehicles. But, I ended up only getting back $400, so I was paying $6/day just to be there. I fell and sprained my ankle in Mazatlan on very deep gravel. I had a horrible time getting through Mexico City, including having a very difficult time changing money there. The last straw was having to spend three hours leaving Mexico. I hope I never have to return there. There are many beautiful places there and some very nice people, but the bureaucracy is awful.
My entry into Guatemala was fantastic. The officials were very efficient and went out of their way to be helpful. The hotel I'm in is decent, but the staff are as helpful and friendly as one could wish. I even got the cook, Doña Flor, to make Gallo Pinto, essentially rice and beans mixed with spices like cilantro.
I expect to be into El Salvador within a day or two. Then Honduras for a day or less. Then Nicaragua, where a friend is waiting for me. Then I plan to visit family and friends in Costa Rica. Then Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, maybe Bolivia, Brazil, and ???
I also lost my smart phone in Mexico and don't have phone numbers, and misplaced my camera before I left. Duh
