Motorbar arrived in Vera Cruz and the jungle welcomed us in Tabasco and Chiapas!

From 3400 m elevation we went to Boca del Rio at sea level. We found a place for camping by a little harbor at the river. Doing Laundry was necessary and so we decided to stay next day at a hostel in Vera Cruz. There we met two interesting brothers, Lucas and Fede, from Patagonia in Argentina, who just shipped their 1965 year old camper from Columbia to Vera Cruz. They finance their travels with brewing and selling their own beer. With changing conditions and ingredients it’s very difficult, but they brew a really good craft beer with (nearly) the same taste.

So they have been on the road for 20 months that day and their dream is going with their camper to the soccer world championship in Russia 2018. The target seems a bit crazy, but we wish them all the best for their project (Motorbar on Facebook). At that evening there was an “Oktoberfest” beer festival near and Peppi joined them with Simon from Wales. We tasted plenty of different beer, but only one we thought was better than the one of the Argentineans. We had fun and it was pleasure meeting them!

Our next campsite La Jungla at the Laguna del Catemaco was incredible. The entrance road don’t looks like one and you pass about 600 meter the deepest jungle. The credit was to park directly next to the lagoon. Rare howler monkeys were hanging around on the trees next to our van. Hundreds of colorful birds were singing and flying around. A lovely place on earth, but then it started raining all day and all night long. By this weather conditions we decided to go on. It was spectacular passing the flooded path in the jungle to the road.

So it rained three days long and the roads we passed were crazy and punctual flooded. One night we parked at Walmart in Villahermosa and continued to the Maya ruins of Palenque. We arrived there at 3:00 pm and exactly at this hour it stopped raining. That was a big bonus! Usually there are thousands of tourists in a day, but that time we’ve been nearly alone at this huge area. Incredible how they built this town with the deepest jungle surrounding!

Close to the ruins we found a campsite and at 6:00 pm it started raining again all night long. There we met an Austrian couple Viktor and (sry, forgot the name L). They met each other 28 years ago at that campground and came back to their 25 years marriage anniversary. Viktor studied, travelled and lived in Mexico (+USA and Guatemala) for eight years, worked at the campground and as an English tour guide nowadays. We listened to incredible stories about the hippie era and how it was in Mexico these days until late at night. One day we want to meet them in Austria again.

In Escarcega the weather got better and we stayed at a lonely campsite. The last visitors were there seven months ago. We harvested coco nuts, bananas, mandarins, lemons and oranges at the trees nearby. Tarantulas around didn’t invited us to hike deeper into the jungle. At night we prepared a barbeque and in the morning howler monkeys and plenty of birds woke us up.
