Thank you SouthAmericanTraveler. My wife and I have done nearly all of Mexico but are now determined to drive to Panama. We currently don't have the desire to push further into South America. I will be posting a new thread today looking for -but not needing - fellow travelers who may be interested.

The "ferry" service from Panama to Columbia is not operational at the moment, however the regular passage on the ships still takes RV on the 14 hr trip, check with the companies that do the trip in Panama. Usual wait is about 3 days. in the meantime see the sites in Panama.

Cartagena de indias, Colombia

Castillo San Felipe in Cartagena allows RVs, and free camping with 24 hr security, beautiful site and shopping mall is just one block to the south. Located here also is the "Old Shoe" monument.

Also parking at the Historic Area, near the Convention Center.

We recently finished this trip and all went smoothly, including Guatemala. We are returning to stock up on supplies and a new GPS to do mapping along the RV route ...many new highways are making the trip shorter and smoother Will pot updates for those interested in driving south.
