Quick question. There is a ride to Palenque coming up. Where would the best place to cross the border be from there?

solo female

My buds headed home so I now find myself as a solo female on a 1981 Kawasaki ltd 440 trecking south. Currently in Flores Guatemala for some Spanish pick up ( 1 or 2 weeks) and then to Antigua and El Salvador. Any one in the area want to join shoot me and e-mail, I could use the company.

I am very interested in your ride! Let me know also if you need anything bike related, while there is time, I have a very good mechanic that works on such bikes.

Between Rich, Julio, and the CATours gang you should have plenty of company in the Guatemala City/Antigua area. Let us know when you arrive or if you have any questions in the meantime on routes.

Look forward to meeting you.

Welcome to Guatemala Sara!

Give us your coordinates and ETA to Antigua. BTW, are you traveling Solo too? Or your title is reffering to Megan?

Heading to Guatemala

Greetings from Iceland.

Well this certainly looks like a thread where I can get all the information i need.

I'm thinking about going to Guatemala with my girlfriend and some friends this summer. We were thinking about buying a cheap moto there and ride around Guatemala and other countries in the region.

I was wondering if you gentlemen (and ladies) might have some information about if this is possible. That is can I as a foreigner buy a bike in Guatemala and, if that's possible, what about taking it across borders in Central America.

I was thinking about buying one of these: http://www.honda.com.gt/motos-doble-.../honda-cb1-tuf
and riding with my girlfriend on the back. What do you guys think?

Any information would be great.

All the best
