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?
