Hello

I'm heading to Central America in October. Just wondering, what is the best was to get from Costa Rica to Ecuador? I was thinking of flying...would I have to sort this before I leave England or can I book it when I get to Costa Rica?

It would be really good if someone could help.

Any other suggestions would good too!

Well you cannot go by land because of the "Darian Gap" in Southern Panama. Flying would definitely be the easiest & safest way.

In respone to your question; Costa to Equador,

I have heard through friends that have met people who have done this. Apparently you can join a yacht or boat from Panama City and sail through the Panama Canal, down the Pacific coast of Columbia and arrive in Cali, Columbia. I think it is only a few hunder kilometres from the boarder with Equcador. I dont really know much more information about this , but will keep you informed if i find out more and you are interested. When do you think you will be travelling down that way? i will be there early January 2006.

just thought you might find this interested cause flying takes all the fun out of travelling.

adios
