Safety in Central America

I wanted to post our experience of traveling from Costa Rica to Guatemala last Monday – Wednesday (July 6-8) in a car with Costa Rican plates.  We traveled with two pets.  The pets were no issue whatsoever, all quickly stamped their entry. Our route was the primary one following the Panamerican Highway with the exception of San Salvador, where we followed CA-02 that follows the coast and leaves the country at Hachadura, where you cross into Guatemala. 

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
