Hola. My wife and a friend went to El Manglar for lunch. Food was great. On the way home they took the combi at 5pm. Two motorbikes followed them from La Ropa. At every pick up spot they stopped behind the combi although there was room to pass. When they got to Plaza Kyoto there was a car that blocked the road. The bus driver managed to get around it and wouldn't let anyone get off. He did a loop around Kyoto and the bikes didn't follow. They were lucky. 5pm on a Saturday? Welcome to Semanta Santa. The grasshoppers are here.

Just a minor correction, first one bike right on the bend from la Ropa to la Ropa road had two guys, then 1/2 block to a driveway/roadway two more on a bike followed...was watching them for guns or?! Thankfully the driver was paying attention! Wish I got his number! gracias amigo for keeping us all safe:) <3

The Urban Dictionary suggests it means a novice.

That said, I found the original post and its follow-up as needlessly opaque.

They are the wanna be cartel boys who jump back & for trying to make a name for themselves, fit in, or even sometimes start their own. That's what I was told a couple of years ago:-)

You’re the only one at least thinking like a Mexican. A chapulín is someone who jumps from one place to another. Politicians and certain criminal elements are certainly known to display such behavior.
