I will be crossing the border Brownsville, TX. One of those... non rushed, enjoy the culture rides. If time permits, I would like to also visit Guatemala and or Belize however, I'm finding out real quick... 4 weeks is just not enough time to go and come back on a relaxed ride.

Anyway,
What kind of weather should I expect during that time of the year there? I believe the rainy season would be over but I'm sure a lot of water would still be around.

Thank you in advance.
Where are you riding from ?

Find a map, and find Puerto Escondido and Huatulco

Connect the dots on the map for those two places

Make an obigatory stop in Oaxaca for as long as is necessary to see the things you must see (see link below), then head further south to arrive Pto Escondido.

Between Zicatella Beach in Pto Escondido and Hualtulco there should be a palapa with your name on it. Maybe a couple or three in different places.

Your only goal after that is to get one of those nasty forehead cold rushes with a near-frozen Indio, then thaw it out with your own mental version of rate-the-bikini

Riding from Florida. However, will be leaving a week or so prior for working in the Fort Worth and San Antonio area. Instead of flying, I will ride and start my vacation after work in SA.

Remember, when you're at the beach bar and being chatted up by some stunner smelling of coconut lotion and whose naval pendant has a single jewel that is catching the sun thus so, remember that you brought along your biz card that simply says

We need to set another date to do the Valparaiso Durango loop...it was too bad we were not able to do in in July....let me know if you have an open date the last of Sept or first part of Oct....we should just about be out of the rain season by then and with all the rain the mountains are green and beautiful and the cattle are getting fat again. It should be a great time to do this ride.

I am so ready!

Thanks for those awesome pics, Trice! I totally forgot about the BBQ Hottie. That's some good viewin'.

Sorry about Nellie. She was a perfect, lovely dog.

Five more weeks of Ice, and I will be in Punta Arenas, Chile!

I been reading every Mexico and further south report I can get my hands on, , Its been about 10 years since I rode down the coast of main land Mexico, QUESTION I never spent over 200 Pesos for a room...
Most a lot less, I was some times ask 300 to 450 pesos but I would just pull out 200 and say , Not much money,,,

Which coast did you ride down?
Get Sjoerd's hotel guide, you'll save the money on the first night.
You'll also get all the up to date info you need.
I have never heard of anyone regretting getting his guide.

Hotel prices.

I did not have Sjoerd's guide and 400 pesos a night was a pretty good average. I did splurge a few times. Don't think I found many, or any at 200. One stay in La Luna chain motel was 120. It was a clean and secure "no tell motel" near DF.

I crossed at Ojinaga went through Creel . Copper canyon across to Mazatlan then on down around Acapulco, For 200 P I never stayed in a dump, More like mom and pop Motel 6 , Always had a safe place for the bike, FYI just for a place to sleep anything over 200 is just over priced in my travel book... Has things changed that much in 10 years?????
I just might be reading the wrong reports retired bankers going down to Mexico on there new GS 1250 BMWs , I like reading the KLR 650 reports they seem to stay in my budget,

Like RMO said, you'll have a hard time finding decent accommodations for under about $400 p. Some places are cheaper, but most are not. At the end of a long day, $400 won't seem so much. Saludos.
