The Route

The route is still fairly flexible but tentatively we think it will look something like this…
Ship the bikes to Apache Junction in November and store them in a short-term storage locker. My Dad’s a “snowbird” and winters in his condo in AJ so he can keep an eye on things and his place will be ground zero when we start the trip.
From Phoenix we’ll travel due south and cross into Mexico at Nogales, with our first stop being Hermsillo. From there we’ll continue south stopping in Los Mochis and Mazatlan. We figure we can do 1,500klm in the first three days, if for no other reason than there’s jack to see between Nogales and Mazatlan.
From Mazatlan we’ll continue on, following Hwy 200 along the coast the whole way through Mexico. We’ll overnight in Rincon de Guayabitos, Colima, Playa Azul, Acapulco and Puerto Escondido. Knock on wood we think we can make the Guatemalan border in two weeks.
At that point things become fluid. We want to touch every county but Belize so we’ll probably stick to the Pan American Hwy whenever possible.
We leave AJ on Jan 14th and hope to arrive in Panama around Feb 10th. Our return flights are all scheduled for Feb 14th.
