Bypassing the Darien Gap

  
Colombia
13. August 2013

This is our adventureous journey from Panamá City to Buenaventura in Colombia by Cargo boats and a small boat on the Pacific side.

We are entering a cargo boat in Panamá City, and going down south for 21 hours to Jaque - far away on the coast in the Darien jungle. After 2 days of waiting we take a small lancha and cross down to Colombia at Bahía Solano. After 3 days we are continuing again on a cargo boat to Buenaventura.

There we hit a road again where we start cycling again. It is a long, uncomfortable and unscheduled journey, but very interesting!
