A short trip to Costa Rica during Corona times. Who the hell would be crazy enough to do that. Well, overlanders having to save their vehicle from confiscation by smart, but powerful locals. Thus, a trip to save Prado and a few days to visit some places in the country. And an opportunity to sit in a plane for more than 12h each way.
Along Nicaragua’s western part. Some volcanoes to sneak around. Then traveling around is getting more complicated. Corona starts to hit Central America. Everything starts to close down. We quickly leave Nicaragua for Costa Rica, prepare our early departure and we’re on the way to Swizzyland. To wait for the end of this mess.
A journey thru Nicaragua’s West. Somoto and Selva Negra. Some remnants of the war against dictator Somoza. Then to Leon: the great colonial town.
The car repaired – we’re back on our journey. To El Salvador’s top sight: Volcano Santa Ana. Then the trip to the country’s civil war-torn provinces to Honduras and on to Nicaragua.
Thru January and February 2020 we visited Guatemala for about 3 weeks.
Here our practical information about the country for overlanders.
A week in Florida. Waiting for Prado’s new injection pump to arrive from Dubai. Thus, the opportunity drive thru Florida’s condominium lined cost up to S. Augustin and back on the West coast.
We visited the country for only 2 weeks in January 2020. It’s true, we did not stay a very long time. Nevertheless, considering the extremely small size of the country we considered it sufficient to visit most places of greater interest.
The last few days in Guatemala. A hike to Pacaya Volcano, then on to El Salvador. La Ruta de Flores, Santa Ana and to San Salvador. There Prado gets seriously sick.
Wanna know everything about overlanding in Mexico. Here at least a few practical information from our trip in 2019-20.
From the Maya inhabited highlands around Lake Atitlan to some of Guatemala’s finest colonial towns: among them Quetzaltenango, Retalhulau and Antigua.
