WARNING: Gaston Etchart of SAmericaXplorer Scam

This post is a warning about working with or using the services of Gaston Etchart and his business called SAmericaXplorer (samericaexplorer.net). This man solicits his services for vehicle transport/shipment on a lot of overlander-type websites. We utilized his services to ship our vehicle from Cartagena to Houston, TX. He required an immediate and full payment for his services and all of the port charges and shipping fees. However, once we were in Colombia, we had to pay all of these costs in person.

WARNING! Robbery at Lago de Yojoa, Honduras

We just want to inform other travellers, that the road to the PANACAM lodge/campground near Lago de Yojoa in Honduras is not safe and armed robbery can be expected. The gravel road to the lodge/campground has some steep, hairpin-curves and you have to drive very slowly. The bad guys know exactly where to jump on your car and stop you with firearms. We got hijacked on our way back to the main highway a week ago.

Safe travels!
Cheers
