28-Dec-2009 -- This is the first out of a series of five confluences visits that we attempted during a three-week vacation in Mexico and Guatemala. Unfortunately, our trip has been overshadowed by some events that occurred on our way to 15°N 92°W. These events will have an impact on our future confluence hunting.

Coming from Mexico City by a rental car, we reached San Jerónimo Ocotitlá and parked our vehicle in the outskirts of this little town at a distance of 3.86 km from the confluence point. We had a beautiful one-hour hike to the confluence during a sunny day. A track leads 70 m to the point, the rest is bush walk. A 5 m high agave and a huge cactus marked the exact location. The pictures that we took for documentation are unfortunately not in our hands anymore.
