Mexico going south

I am in Gueymas on the coast just south of the Mexico border heading first to Acapulco and then on south to Guatemala on a Suzuki DRZ400. Is anyone heading in my direction?

Zentrpa, I couldn't post a PM not enough posts error message, but I will be looking to be leaving Acapulco on the 7th or 8th, I'm a bit a head of you but if you close up I can hang about a day or two. Keep posted.

Graham squared,

How did you like San Cristobal/Comitan area? Lived and worked there for 3 years... LOVELY !!

Am in Peru now (and for most of my life). Can I answer any questions?

met up with pearcy a few days ago, we're currently in nicaragua, san juan del sur to be precise about 50 miles north of the costa rica border.

Will be heading south in a few days, with an aim of getting the boat around to colombia the first week in august.

I know of a few people a bit ahead and behind so where is everybody?? Maybe a ride and session is in order!!

I busted my shock in copper canyon and just bounced my way to Mazatlan where I'll be for a few days so yeah, I'm way behind you now.
I will not get on the boat to Columbia until Sept... most likely.

Hi,
we are just in Veracruz, Mexico on our way south (riding 2 DR 650). Thinking about a language course as well. Where exactly are you in Guatemala - Antigua ?

How was border crossing from Mex / where did you cross ?

Marcus

I'm in Xela/Quetzaltenango (the city has two names).
I like the school and the town quite well.
I crossed at La Mesilla. I arrived on a Sunday and it took about 30 min.
