When my wife and I crossed into Guatemala a few years ago we crossed at La Mesilla with no problems. This time we're further south and see we can cross between Cacachoatan (Mexico) and El Carmen (Guatemala) then on to San Marcos, Quezaltenango and on to Lago de Atitlan (Panajachel).

Do you recommend this crossing? It would save us almost a day rather then riding further north and then down through Huehuetenango.

Your input (and any other inmates) is greatly appreciated.


I personally have never done the El Carmen border,so I don't know if there is a Banjercito on the Mexican side or if you have to go through the Viva Mexico place close to Tapachula. On the Guatemalan side there is a Migraqcion and Aduana .
Looking forward to meet you both.
Ride safe,
