tehuantepec is not always blowing.

folks make abigger dealk out of this than is usually necessary.

so, if the cocodrilos dont eat you, and if the winds dont kill you you should be ok.
Not the same trip at all, California to Costa Rica is muy facil if you watch the weather. The only tricky part is timing your T-pec and the Popagayo winds. I think the real challenge comes when you turn north into the golf of Panama because that will be the first fight against weather.
