Hello everybody,

My girlfriend and I are planning to travel from Mexico to Chile but we are struggling to get from Panama to Colombia.
Does anyone have any tips, I looked for flights but they are all around $400 and that is to much for us because we are on a tight budget.

From what I've read, those flights are slightly cheaper than the alternative - which is to sail taking a few days.

Sometimes there isn't a budget alternative and you just have to swallow it.

I saw people travelling from Panama City to Puanto Obita and then by boat to Colombia. Does anyone have something about that?

Travelling by boat between Panama and Colombia is a popular way to do that route. It's not necessarily much cheaper then flying but you get to see the beautiful San Blas islands along the way.

I've heard good things about these companies:

Panama Colombia sailing
and
Blue Sailing
