Drive U.S. to Panama

Jump to last reply

I am going to drive from the U.S. to Panama beginning in Jan. 2011. This trip is to celebrate my 60th birthday in March of 2011.

This is a trip I have been planning since my wife and I returned from five months of backpacking through South America five years ago. (Our last big trip was two years ago: seven weeks in India plus 16 days in Bhutan.)

Tentatively I am planning on being gone for 150 days, to sell the vehicle in Panama, and fly home. My wife will do Mexico City and surrounding area plus Panama with me. My brother will do one of the other Central America countries with me. The remainder of the time I will most likely be on my own.

Please forward any information you may have on a similar trip, web pages to investigate, maps one should use, equipment, type of vehicle to travel, paper work required, dollar budgeting for the trip, bird guides, etc.

So far I have searched Fodors & Lonely Planet.

Thanks,

TWAontheGO
