TTT for any updates people may have.
Looking for places to stay along the gulf of mexico, plan on crossing at Matamoros and heading down the coastline to Campeche then cutting across and coming back up the west coast.
Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Any suggestions for (Mexico) Durango, Zacatecas or Leon?

Here in Mazatlan, the cheapest I have found is 400 pesos a night. Granted, that is on the Malecon.

Hotels in Mexico have been more expensive than I expected, even in liily rarely-visited villages. I bargain every time, and am ready to leave for a cheaper place. 400 seems to be the basement to share a room and 360 alone.

hei hei bouldergeek,

Tranquilo compadre...

No pues que mala onda que no nos conocimos durante tu visita en guanajuato, donde no vale nada la vida

Sorry we did not get to meet while your visit in colonial guanajuato, maybe next time. I can show you some really sweet trails and then you will undersstand why we call it PLANET GTOROCKS. Do a google or yahoo search for extreme rock racing or wrc in guanajuato or simply GTOROCKS.

Next time your in town, email or call us beforehand. WRC Mexico is returning March 5-7, you should try and make it, that way you can see us zoom by those Santa Rosa, Ortega, and Cubilete Trails.

Bar 8, we used to park our rigs right in front of the bar, even crawled the wall there back in the day...

You can read more details in my trip report. The owners are an old family from Saltillo. They also own the restaurant El Tapanco which is popular in Saltillo. This is a good hotel to stay in if you want to tour Saltillo and have a good place to relax. Good breakfast, and dinner only by appointment. No lunch. I stayed there two nights.

Just a random note, I'm sure it's been put out here before..

I was originally very preoccupied with knowing about hotels before embarking on my South America to Minnesota trip, but the truth is, I never once had to "know" where a good hotel was, I just rolled into town, sometimes checked the guide book (I used Lonely Planet), and stopped somewhere. I never once had trouble finding a hotel. They're everywhere. Many don't have secure parking lots, but even those that don't will allow you to pull right into the front door and park in the lobby. Also never paid more than 30 south of the border (and no more than 20 south of Mexico) except for once in Costa Rica (but the place was amazing for 40).

That said, it is nice to know a nice place, just don't be overly worried about it if you're planning your first trip, you can find a hotel anywhere.

DiabloBlanco,

That has been pointed out all over ADVrider. Anyone posting data on this thread has also done the "just roll into town and find a place" thing also. We are just building a database to leverage off of each others knowledge.

Like I said, I'm quite sure it's been said all over adv (I haven't been all over the site to make sure), and I'm not trying to insult anyone or especially the purpose for this thread, I think it is a valuable tool, I only aimed to alleviate any worries that a "first-timer" might have as I know I was a little worried when I first started off. That said once I finish easing back into "real world" I'll have a few hotels of my own to throw on this.

Agreed. And I for one would like to see some more hotels listed. I think one of the benefits of databases like this is specifically for the first-timer. It just might make them more amenable to take that first plunge. Of course, once they do their first crossing, and their first lodging, they realize it's not such a big deal after all. It's interesting to see some of the angst build on ADVrider when a noob does his first crossing, and then see how the angst releases afterward and when they make their subsequent trips.

A secondary reason for databases like this is just for the convenience sake of it for us regulars. As in, "hey I'm going to that town, I think I'll try that hotel that DiabloBlanco stayed at since he gave it a good review"

I'm not sure what a ADVrider would be doing in the likes of Escazu. Maybe the Ducati would look good parked next to the Ferrari

This is Michael and Lisa's place and they run it with their family. They have been in the country for 4 years and are very helpful. Michael has riden down KLR 650's with his pals and now rides all over Nicaragua. Great wealth of information and good support base. Stop and see them. It's a great place to land coming South into Nicaragua from the Somotillo border cross out of Honduras. Get caught up on laundry, internet a cold beer and some good food.
