    by air?
    is that an option , to skip CA and just do SA.
    The bike is presently in Puebla and I can save myself froma load of effing bordercrossings and dim witted CA customs and passport people.
    Will I miss the really great stuuff if I skip CA?
    Who can ship and rather from Oaxaca then DF?

    Anders, check with Ludwig on the Stahlratte, he is sailing from Mexico next year back to Colombia. I'm not sure when. You can get his schedule online.

    Hi rattis,
    did you already made your decision?

    We had here in our house in Leon/Nicararagua a few bike-travellers coming from the north.
    They all enjoyed pretty much Nicaragua and later on the more expensive Costa Rica.

    Here in Nicaragua there is pretty much do to and to see.
    Just have a look on the gallery on my website to have an idea what about I'm speaking.

    I don't know how are your spanish skills. But you should have at least some to enjoy your trip.
    So, take your time and learn something and explore the countries.
    And if you are afraid about travelling trough Honduras, you can do it in 2 days - no problem.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    saludos J├╝rgen
