Well, Murphy always gets his licks in.
Got all my flights and lodging arranged, only to find that I am not allowed to take a rental car from El Salvador to Honduras unless I rent it for seven days or more and go to the rental counter 72 hours in advance to buy an expensive permit! The bus route according to Rome2Rio (usually wrong, I know) is go to Galan, stay on the bus, go to Tegucigalpa, stay overnight, go to Choluteca passing through Galan.
Wasn't planning to bring my bike because I only have 96 hours from landing till take-off.
Suggestions? Is there a site to find rides? Is hitchhiking viable? Anyone reading who'd like to drive it for 100 US dollars? Or is there a better bus route than that Rome2Rio offered?
Well, if it matters to anyone else, I got one answer from another site.
