I completely agree with you.
There is NO sense in risking one's life when it's easy to bypass Nica
Two close friends left on 6/16 for 10 day surf trip to San Juan Del Sur..I thought they would cancel but they went anyways, no communication, hope they make it back ok. Resort said driver could still get back and forth to the airport...Not worth the risk but they are seasoned travelers.
Someone's first hand account of crossing Nica...Sketchy
Thank you for sharing this story and for everyones input on the matter.
As one who is planning on departing for an intended route south this coming October, this information has been invaluable.
I have been through many road blocks and auto defence blockades in Mexico in the past twenty years...But nothing like this....Needless to say, not smart to travel in Nicaragua now.
Explain the easy part of bypassing Nicaragua ??
Hopefully Lisa and Simon will be along shortly with the details of their Panama-Guatemala flight.
Fly like a bird
Up and over
Not for the pocketbook!
With my Spanish skills if I tried to ship a bike from Guatemala to Panama, the chances of ever seeing my bike again would be slim to none
I had a trip planned for November and December through Nicaragua,Costa Rica and Panama that I canceled
Hopefully things will have settled down by then. Hate to think of the Nicaraguans enduring this for that long.
Then fly to Colombia.
NO different than from Panama to Colombia via plane or boat.
The point is to avoid the danger.
I don't see any reason for debate on this.
Lots of English speaking personnel in Guatemala.
What makes you think you'll lose your bike?
And miss Costa Rica and Panama? It makes sense, those countries are $$$$. Never been there so my opinion does not matter!
Chill dude go find your happy spot and practice some slow breathing or something
I have ridden in Guatemala a couple of times and was looking forward to riding through on my way south.
Skizz I know some folks who bought property in Nicaragua near the Costa Rica border a few years back, they have been in contact with folks still living there and it sounds pretty bleak.
I'm still riding back from Guatemala and had a great time traveling around that country.
I was only asking why you think you'd lose your bike if you flew it.
Its a simple question.
NO need to get snarky bud.
So sad. My friends there say the poverty is so deep and wide throughout the country and now so many poor people fleeing Ortega’s government. Such hardship! I hope it doesn’t continue much longer.
Easy peasy ??? Don't think so mi amigo
From where to where ??
Not so easy from Guatemala?
Well maybe from Mexico to Panama or Colombia?
What would you suggest?
All I know is that I wouldn't go through Nicaragua any time soon.
Flying yourself is very easy , finding an airline willing to take your bike is a completely different ball game .
It sounds like Stormdawg has extensive experience in Latin America!
