January 28
Bogota, Colombia

Continuing our trip through Central and South America, in this blog we will finally enter South America.

Previously we spent the first half of our trip in Nicaragua, followed by quick bus trips through, with brief stays, in Costa Rica and Panama. We did not do either of those countries due justice, but we did get a feel for them and saw some great places too.

The morning following our trip to ...

We hired a driver for the day and after we spent time at the Canal visitor center, he took us back into the city and we got onto a tour that would show us around, both on land...

Costa Rica and Panama Canal

I’m back to further show our trip to Central America. In this section we will continue traveling south.

Our friends dropped us off at the border of Nicaragua and Costa Rica so we could walk across. There were no other Americans, or anyone other than Latin Americans doing this. Once we cleared customs and immigration (with the “help” of a local guy who was slick at towing us along th...
