Some of these hotels look like "just the ticket". Hopefully this winter i get a chance to try a few of them out.

Cool2 Good Hotel in San Cristobal

QUOTE=rockymountainoyster;22097205]I stayed at the first place I came to riding into town, right next to the bus station, clean, quiet, new, secure parking250p/ night for room without cable . I had injured my knee earlier in the day, I was tired, in pain, it was cold and cloudy, I didn't want to fuck around trying to find cheaper, better, more well located. At that point, once I got off the bike I could not get back on. My left leg would not bear weight and I was in no mood to learn to mount from the right. I ended up staying there for a week. I looked around at other places...there were hostals that were cheaper but no parking, then there were places at 1,750 and 2,100 plus tax. I think Sjoerd's book would have been useful because at the end of a day, hot, tired, hungry and thirsty with dark coming on, the last thing I want to do is tour hotels. It is always nice to have a destination that someone else has tried and recommended. There are more and more "euro style" hotels/motels in Mexico...they are modern, soulless and often in boring suburban neighborhoods with little street life and few restaurants.[/QUOTE]

Hello everyone.
Haven’t come to this fine site in a while. Last February I was in San Cristobal and stayed at Hotel Del Santuario. Very nice and safe place with big and clean rooms, pool, and good prices. The staff was super nice and they even have murals in the garage.


Saludos y nos vemos por México...

The site from whence the picture was lifted has reference to Clancy and to Greg Frazier who wrote the book about him. According to that site, folks from here set him straight about who was first.

I just met up with Frazier and the two Scottish guys who just re-enacted Clancy's ride, a couple months ago at Niagara Falls. Here's a pic:


Fazier is the dark hair with his face in the tank bag by the CX-500. The two Scottish guys are in the green shirt and blue jacket, never did get their names but the whole ride is documented on Horizons.

(That's my well-worn ST1100 in the lower-right corner. )

I think I have found technology that could one day remove the risk from one of the greatest dangers facing motorcyclists in Mexico...the tope! (you know, the long hard turds of the Topecabra)





Check it out here. http://www.yankodesign.com/2013/05/2...while-cycling/

It's meant for silly cyclists, but with a bit more range and power it could easily be made to show up speed-bumps, sleeping donkeys, and with the right reflector kit, allow you to find MikeMike in the distance when he's "taking it easy because of my bad (Insert BMW part name)"

Someone rush to market with this...you could sell dozens!

This thread is an addiction....DAMMIT MAN!

Good stuff for those who visit and desire to explore the beauties of Mexico. I'm so ready to hit the road I can't wait until December. I started my list to prep:
  • Ensure "Maria Silva" is tuned, equipped and ready to roll ...... Check
  • Join ADVrider......Check
  • Contact and order book from Sjoerd......Check
  • Pointers from the well seasoned Advriders....Check
  • Filter any and all negative US Media about Mexico ....Check
  • Erase any preconceived ideas gained about Mexico from US Media......Check
  • Stop telling those close minded family & friends about my next adventure outside of the US.... (Funny thing is... when I traveled to the Philippines & Dominican Republic solo, I heard the same thing) Oh well.... lmao..... Check
  • Initial plan to RUN through Mexico to Costa Rica....SCRATCHED. Will spend the majority of the time in Mexico to enjoy her beauty ........Check
  • No set plan but have a general direction to go and places desired to see but not a must. Just Point South, take it slow, enjoy the adventure making the route as I go.....Check
  • Use paper maps to enhance the Avdenture
  • Initiate contact with fellow Inmates in Mexico & surrounding countries for possible meet, greet and fellowship..... WIP
  • Keep plugged in with the "Is Mexico safe....thread"..... Check
.............Ok back to the TOPIC at hand ...........I'm all.......>

Attention Tequila and Coffee Aficianados

Patron XO Café Coffee Liqueur

Tricepilot Tip: drink straight up as a shot or, and you'll thank me later, add to your cup of java ()

Patron makes travel sized bottles as well, or just use your old high school days secret flask

All good stuff but this was your best decision

I would next dwell in Guatemala. Lot's of magic there.

You'll eventually get to points south. Those countries aren't going anywhere.
