I am currently in Costa Rica. I will be working here until Mid July. At the beginning of August, I need to be in Peru for another job. I have limited money and my spanish speaking isn't that great (though I am of course learning all the time).
I've seen old threads about this journey and things seem to have changed dramatically since then. For example, I cant find a flight that's cheaper than $1000 and this is way too expensive for me. I've also seen threads that say the overland route (coach, boat, coach) is a nightmare.
I have about 3 weeks in which to complete the journey. I can get from Costa Rica to Panama, no bother. But what would be the best way to get to Peru within 3 weeks at a much more reasonable price than $1000 (from either CR or Panama)? The more detailed anyone could be the better... Many thanks for your help in advance.
