Panama to Columbia

There is no roads between Panama and Columbia(South America). So the only way to get there is to fly or a very few who want a little more adventure decide to sail over to Cartagena, Columbia. Its a 5 day sail. Five of us plus the captain. The first couple days jumping around islands in the San Blas coast of Panama and then 48+ hour sail to Cartagena. The First couple days where good. The sail from the San Blas to Cartagena is a different story. Large waves and a small boat does not work with me. 48hours of being tossed around a boat did wonders to my digestive system. I had a very cleansing few days. Also I could not sleep during any of that crossing. We where all glad to get to Cartagena and stand on solid ground, our bodies where still rocking back and forth for a few more days.

All is well

Tim

You're nuts!
You guys are nuts. Too adventurous for me. My idea of adventure is driving in Atlanta at rush hour in my Malibu. -air conditioned-- leather seats-- you know- all the trappings of civilization. "Cute" little 40 footer, tho, --- it would do well in the Great Lakes, I am sure. NOT THE OCEAN!!!!!!!!! I am a Spanish teacher and we are studying Molas-- artwork from the Kuna Indians. But I am sure you know what I am talking about. I am going to show these photos to my students. Good thing we have some people that are willing to venture out-- gives me stuff to talk about! ¡Gracias!

Hitchin a ride...
Wondering if anyone has any info on hopping a board a sail boat, possibly swap a helping hand for a free ride from Panama to Columbia. Any word of mouth, websites whatever, it all helps!
