Theres 3 of us trying to essentially get to central america for the cheapest price. We are in quito right now.
preferably this would be via cartagena and the carribbean coastline....does anyone know of cheap buses from quito to cartagena, or cheap local airlines...also does anyone know about a boat that goes up the river to columbia??
We´ve been checking airlines and its all coming up at over US$350..we´re travelling on the australian dollar so really need the cheapest possible option....any help would be really appreciated..cheers
also if sailing from cartagena to panama do u pay departure tax? if so how much? Ive read the sailing trip costs between US$250 and 350 so does that include food? we really want to sail it but if its more than a flight we´l have to flag it..

The sailing trip price usually includes the food, but not the booze. I don't think that there is a departure tax for sailing out. Can't help you on sailing, and you are correct. In the last two years, the price of short flights has shot up dramatically. Sorry gang. You are right in your sailing price range as well.
