Going to Honduras - Buy a bus?

Hey y'all. We're going to live at a farm outside of Tegulcigalpa, Honduras. We're going to be there for about 6 months (Oct to April), maybe longer, so we figured we'd bring our two beloved bullies (70 lbs each). It costs $1k for just one crate for a plane, so we're considering driving from Dubuque, IA. We would like to take our time and make this a little easier on ourselves since we have limited experience driving across country borders, so we're considering buying a bus. Anyone have experience with this type of thing? I'm reading that the buses we're looking at are generally 20 seaters, some diesel, some gas, get around 12 mpg highway, so we would offer rideshare to help with costs.

We currently have a 2014 Honda CRV. Would be great to be able to stretch out and sleep in the bus, esp if we get held up at the border. My main concern is road conditions and if the bus can be modified. Just looking for other smart/adventurous people who have done similar things.
