Chile

We drove in to Chile on August the 27th at Hito Cajon, leaving the laguna route in Bolivia behind us. So far this is our highest border crossing at 4634 masl. So few people cross the border here, that we practically had to wake somebody up. It was quick and … Read more

Bolivia

We arrived in Bolivia at the 26th of June 2023. We used the Kasani Border crossing, situated on the shores of Lago Titicaca. So far, this was by far our easiest and quickest border crossing during our travels in central- and south America. Our first stop was Copacabana. Yes, there … Read more

Peru

On the 31st of March we crossed the border in to Peru. We used a small inland border and everything was relaxed and easy. Although Kilian had to walk back from the Peruvian side to the Ecuadorian immigration office because the officer had forgotten to put an exit stamp in … Read more

Ecuador

We drove in to Ecuador on the 4th of January. This was our slowest border crossing ever, it took 6 hours! 1.5 hours to get out of Colombia, there was a long line to get the exit stamp for our passports. Then only about 30 minutes in line to get … Read more

Panama

From here we will ship the van to Colombia as you can read here. We are here for about a month, total which is rather a short stay for us. So far we have enjoyed the beautiful nature and friendly people and the fact that they use dollars here as … Read more

Costa Rica

Getting into the country was less of a hassle, compared to any of the CA4 countries. The process is straight forward, just make sure you have enough cash (dollars are the universal currency at any border so far) for the obligatory car insurance. De-fumigation and TIP were at no cost. … Read more

Nicaragua

One thing that we immediately noticed, already at the Nicaraguan side of the border, was the prominent use of red-black flags and the letters FSLN. It was used even more than the national flag. It turned out that it stands for Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, the socialist party that … Read more

Honduras

After spending about a month in Guatemala, we drove in to Honduras early May. We had a slight hick up at the border as this was our first border where you can only pay in cash and not with a creditcard. And there were no atm’s either. We exchanged every … Read more

Guatemala

From Mexicó we crossed the border at Talismán. This border crossing (and possibly any crossing in Central America) is quite different from the ones in Europe (as far as they still exist). At the Mexican side there was no clear process or steps to follow. For example: I asked a … Read more
