Is it possible to driving from Costa Rica to Panama?
Is there an official border crossings here? We are looking at maps and while we see a road, it doesn't look too official. Are their roads that we can take taxi or buses and we can cross into Panama?
Any other recommendation? We would like to get from the southern most point in costa rica on the Caribbean coast into Panama?
Thanks for any help.
Canoas is the best crossing. It's on the Pacific side. Very good road, and pretty quick. the other border I've crossed, the one between Puerto Viejo and Bocas Del Toro (to make the towns easy for you to find online) is called Guabito. That's on the Caribbean side. It is an ANCIENT railroad trestle that does take vehicles. But the bridge is ridiculous. It's only big enough for one vehicle at one direction at a time...and is the same bridge that pedestrians and big rigs use to cross.(it's something to see...but damn) Canoas is for you. If I were you, I'd knuckle through the different passport offices myself, rather than pay one of the local expediters to do it for you....Follow an expediter, if you're lost. It is easy...
Good Luck Out There.
Ciudad Neily is the last town of any size on the Costa Rica side. There isn't much on the Panama side until you reach David City, which is a useful crossroads (although the city itself isn't much to look at).
