One year with our own Motorhome thru Central America and Mexico – A Resume

After two and a half years in South America we come to Panama in November 2015 with mixed feelings. Most of the countries which are now ahead of us are known for crime, drugs and violence together with negative news in the press.

Goodbye Mexico

We make a stop in Tepic for shopping and stay at an RV Park in town for the night before we continue to Mazatlan the next day. Originally we have supposed to stay 1-2 nights there but somehow it became 10 days.

Mexico (9) – Northern Pacific Coast

Our way leads us from Guadalajara to Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific Coast. We like it warm but the temperatures we found were really maddening. Daily average 35 degrees and above and at night around 30 Degrees with a humidity above 70%.

Mexico (2) - Yucatan to Oaxaca

After our two weeks in Cuba we need some rest and drive once again to the nice campground in Xpu-Ha close to Tulum. This is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy ourselves at the Caribbean beach. We meet a few other couples from Germany and spend some nice days together.

Cuba

When Columbus reached Cuba in 1492 the first time he obviously did not know that some centuries later shortly after the visit from Barack Obama and the Rolling Stones also „Die Ausreiser“ visit Cuba. It`s not very likely that we come closer to Cuba as we are at the moment and so we plan an individual sixteen days trip on short notice.

Mexico (1) - Yucatan

After it took us three hours to get into Mexico at the border with drug dog and completely x-rayed (Viva Mexico) we go to Chetumal in a nice RV park direct on the ocean. We stay a few days and visit Chetumal with the very nice Maya culture museum.

Belize

We leave Guatemala and enter Belize a country which is completely different from the rest of Central America. The language in the former British Crown Colony is English and instead of kilometers or meters they have miles, yards and inches. Also the good old German pound is no longer what it seems to be and weighs only 454 Gramm. But lucky enough we must not drive on the other (wrong) side of the road.

Guatemala

We are the only people at the border and we are happy that we have no queue at the counter. However we didn`t take into account the lunch break from customs which lasts exactly one hour. Till we have done all the uncounted copies and have received all stamps it`s two hours later. This seems to be our standard time for border crossings.

Honduras and El Salvador

We leave the Somoto Canyon early in the morning and drive to the border of Honduras. The formalities are very strange and we take one of the many helpers who offer their services for a few bucks. However it´s wise to get clarification about the price beforehand. Otherwise they may take $20. In light of a monthly per head income of $160 in Nicaragua and $195 in Honduras one should not overstress the tip. A few Dollars are more than enough even when they look very disappointed.
