Hello to all. I am a new member to Mexconnect. There is lots of great information here, more timely I am finding out than some of the travel forums.
I lived in Veracruz for a number of years, returning to the USA in 2009. Restless again and want to come back through Mexico headed for Central America, crossing the Darien Gap either via air or boat, farther south to South America, backpacking.
Given the problems in Mexico I would anticipate the best route for this trip is down the autopista from someplace like Nuevo Laredo, from there through Mexico City, south to Oaxaca and from there south to either Guatemala or Belize. Having owned a car when I was living on a Pensionado visa in Mexico and having driven much of the country, I find that now I want to ride and look rather than drive and concentrate.
Any advice or comments would be deeply appreciated including anyones' experience with or recommendations for which bus line to use.
Warmest Regards and thanks very much for the excellent forum and website.
