I arrive in Rio for the carnival then am heading up to Mexico. What do you think is the best way of getting there. I have 2 months. Some people say fly to Costa rica. Brazil is too big and central America is too good to miss out on. If I fly to Costa rica I am missing out on Panama. But can you travel all the way up?
Dont miss Columbia as its probally one of the most friendlist countries you will ever go to on your travels.
Fly from Brazil to Ecuador and then bus upto Bogota,then Cartegena for a few days in each.
Then you "have to fly" to get across to Panama and see the Panama canal for a day or two.
www.ticabus.com will take you all the way up through Central America stoping in each country until you reach Mexico or use ordinary long distance bus's.
I just done it this Jan/Feb/March(jackboy travel blogs) and its a fantastic journey and great people and lots of travellers to share the thrill.
Have a great time and enjoy your travels.
