We are sailing… Panama > Cartagena, Columbia

We were picked up at 6:30 and left at 10:00pm.  I have to say I was pretty excited about it, I have never been on a sailboat before. We picked up the rest of the passengers the following morning from this island, where we were also cleared through Customs etc. We had 16 passengers and […]

Panama City > Puerto Lindo 149km

Before leaving Panama we had to ride over the Bridge of the Americas – actually we ended up doing it 4x because we missed the pic stop!! Puerto Lindo is a small seaside village where we will be loading our bikes onto a catamaran. The local restaurantis  very popular with the boaties, mostly from other […]

Las Lajas > Panama City 401km

And so on to Panama…oh how it rained!!!  Not continuous but two very heavy downpours.  Added to that we got caught in solid rush hour traffic for ages and were just cooking in our bike gear.  Was very glad to finally get to a hotel and get the rain gear and bike gear off!! We […]

Quepos, Costa Rica > Las Lajas, Panama – 343km

You would think with the low cloud that it was cold, but not the case.  We had high humidity and high temps – 32 deg by 9:30, however once on the road it felt great, it was only when we stopped that we really felt the heat. I love our coffee stop places The road […]

La Cruz > Quepos, Costa Rica – 330km

What a fabulous days’ ride, I am loving Costa Rica – for a start it sounds so exotic!!  Lots of farmland, not so populated, some time on the coast, reasonable roads, rainforest. First glimpse of Costa Rica’s coastline, love to hear the sound of the waves. Didn’t expect to see these, highrise hotels – this […]

Esteli, Nicaragua > La Cruz, Costa Rica – 293km

We woke up early so decided we may as well just get going so were on the road just after 7:00. Had 5 guys very interested in my bike this morning and they stood around to watch us leave.  The driveway out of the hotel was like a washed out steep farm track with bits […]

Santa Rosa de Lima, El Salvador > Honduras > Estelli, Nicaragua – 270km

Antigua, Guatemala > La Libertad, San Salvador – 303km

Breakfast in Antigua You can tell we are out of the mountains now, all the stalls are either pineapples, bananas, coconut, or sugarcane.
