Corinto has limited daylight hours of service for doing HN exit paperwork
On Guatemalan side there is only a small roadside Aduana kiosk about 10km
into the country and they will look at your papers and direct you to go to the full
service customs and immigration terminal in the Harbour area
of Puerto Barrios . Regardless of what they tell you , RIDE YOUR BIKE to that terminal. Some misguided official at the kiosk may say you have to take a taxi, NOT so!.
By the way , if you are on a trip to see C A why would you want to avoid riding through
such a nice part of it ?
The immigration terminal in Puerto Barrios so easy to find and quick. There is a very fine restaurant around the corner from it as well. The proprietor tried to convince me to staying and his granddaughter would teach me Spanish. He told my friend I would be the mayor of the city within a couple of years. I didn't stay but it is always an option to see if it is still open. (The point is that Puerto Barrios is very friendly and accomodating)
