General run down of the country for riders.

Hi there,

why not give us all a general blurp about traveling on bikes through Honduras. Some say, only the Caribean coast is worth visiting. A lot have complaint about the general road conditions. Specially in the south. Places to see that most travelers miss on. Borders to avoid. departamentos that have the most variety of places to visit? Hotel availability/prices?

My last experience going from El Salvador to Nicaragua was a nightmare. The roads were in such bad shape, I bent BOTH rims. Some riders have comented that is better (if in El Salvador) to cut into Guatemala to go to Copan, because the roads from El Poy to Copan are difficult to navigate, too much like a maze and in bad shape.

Thanks for the info. I live in Guatemala and meet a lot of riders asking for advise about going to Honduras or skipping it.

Buenos tardes amigos, we would certainly appreciate the information as well as we are currently in Palenque heading to Merida, then over to Guatemala to Xela for about three weeks to learn some more Spanish then heading south.

We too have heard horror stories of bad Police and huge potholes and with the vision of just head down bum up to get through there, some guidance would be saweet.

If we can meet up to chew the fat and talk travel and motorcycles etc we are in for that.

Gracias Andi & Ellen

Looking to head to Roatan this year....was hoping for last year, but shit happens (ed), will definitely keep you in mind when the time comes. We have a friend that rents 250's over on Roatan and I have been trying to gather some info on the logistics of taking the bikes across and hitting some coastal routes.
Thanks for posting....

I guess the roads around Copan have worsened since I lived there in 2006.Sad to hear that.
