All Is Well Heading Back North

I apologize for not having any updates since November 2012. I have been staying (being lazy) in Panama City, and spending my time getting to know Panama City. I have met some great new friends during my stay in Panama City, but now it is time for me to depart. I headed out of Panama City on 3 JAN 13, and was attempting to spend a week in Bocas Del Toro, but I got stopped by the customs police and my bike was impounded. According to my paperwork for the bike, it was only valid for one month in Panama, so I had to go to David and stay for a couple of days to get my bike. Long story short…paid a fine of $200 US Dollars the next day, and I got my bike. On 5 JAN 13, I crossed the border into Costa Rica and headed for a surf town called Jaco. I did not really like the feel of Jaco, so I headed for Liberia the next morning. I cross the border into Nicaragua on 10 Jan 13, and I am currently in Managua, Nicaragua. I will head out for Honduras tomorrow.

Raymond:
Your RR is excellent. The writing is one of the best I've read. It's honest. Keep riding. If ever in Santa Cruz, CA send me a text. Couch on me.

Just found this thread. Great pics, hope to see more.
Cheers, Brian

PS. Text would be a little more readable with the occasional line break/paragraph.
Just sayin'.

Thanx for posting and Wonderful pics. I'm just wondering what your plan is now? Are you headed back to the states or are you just wing'in it?

Take care,
Clay D

Back In Antigua

I made my way out of Managua, and spent the night in Choluteca, Honduras. On my way down to Panama, I avoided stopping in Honduras, but I decided to spend a night in Honduras on this occasion. I was pleasantly surprised how nice and accommodating the people of Honduras treated me. I had heard from other travelers that Honduras was a bad place, but in the city of Choluteca, everyone was very friendly.

The following morning I headed out for La Libertad, El Salvador, and for some crazy reason, customs only allowed my bike to stay in the country for 24 hours…they explained something to me that I did not comprehend. So, I spent one night there, and got an early start for Antigua, Guatemala. The border crossing was easy, and only took one hour to exit El Salvador and enter Guatemala. I arrive in Antigua around 3PM, and found a nice $20 hostel.

My plan going forward is to stay in Antigua for the next 85 days, and then make my way up to Belize, then onto the Yucatan in Mexico. This should take about 7 or 8 months, and then I will make my way to the Pacific coast of Mexico. I will head back to the USA when the money runs out. I will be posting photos very soon.

A Man With a Plan

Hi Raymond,

Good to hear from you again.

Looks like some folks were concerned about you when you were incommunicado. Okay, I admit, I was hoping all was well too. I just assumed that you were all shacked up with some mamasitas con nalgitas bonitas! And hopefully ........... you were!

You are missing nothing up here in the states. It was in the -30s last night where I live here in Colorado. Wanna swap? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Looking forward to the continuation of your ride report. I'll be following along. I'll get in touch when you are heading northward again. I've spent a lot of time in Quintana Roo, Yucatan, and Campeche. We'll have to compare notes.

Send some warm weather up this way please! Oh yeah, and more surfer gal pics too.

Ride safe, Rob
