Central America in December

Me and a buddy are planning on riding from Texas to Panama and back in December. Trick is, we're going to try to do it in 14 days. I suspect this will be difficult, but that won't deter us. If anyone wants to come with, you'd be more than welcome, as long as you don't slow us down :).

I'm still searching through the forums and have found a lot of great advice here, but is there anything you would say that we shouldn't miss?

14 days for there AND back?? I'd say you're going to miss a lot more than you're going to see... It can still be fun though, good luck!

I might like getting to Panama quickly but plan on going much further. I'll be in Rio before Carnival in February.

You may want to avoid kidnapers that are trying to catch riders in the Monterey region & south of Reynosa. See the blow by blow of a ADV rider outrunning them last week in the Latin America region forum.

Keep in touch,
Jay
