    Any tips on travelling overland by coast from Caracas to Panama?

    There are no established ship lines linking Caracas to anywhere, occasionally some cruises may stop at La Guaira Port, but they sail to nearby islands, and due to the poor security situation those cruise trips are rare nowadays. If departing from Colombia's Caribbean coast i.e, Cartagena, chances are higher but don't expect any bargain prices. Air travel continues to be the best way to make it to Panama, there are some frequencies from Caracas and many more from several Colombian cities, even those on the coast like Barranquilla, or Cartagena. about 8 years ago

    Is travel safe in Pakistan?

    A couple of friends of mine just came back from Pakistan and they an an uneventful trip, as long as you are well-informed and do not venture off the beaten path, you should not encounter problems. Of note, they are amidst a massive bombing in Madrid years ago, in a country that was supposed to be safe and civilised. about 8 years ago

    No, the rainy season takes place between June and July. December tends to be cold. Rain can't be ruled out but chances are lower than in summer and autumn. about 8 years ago

    What is the best paragliding flying site in Colombia south America

    Give a try to Santander province specifically Bucaramanga the capital city of that region. It's really spectacular and there are schools specialising in such discipline. Around Ruitoque plateau in the outskirts of Bucaramanga you can find frequent action. For the adventuresome, heading south to Chicamocha Canyon is also an option but tough and challenging. Enjoy Colombia and Santander, it's referred to as a "land of adventure" about 8 years ago

    How is the cheapest way to get to Chocó / Colombia?

    I can say I'm a pundit on Colombia's travel. Choco region is a mega diverse area with thick jungles making it impossible to be reached by bus or car. A road in poor condition links the regional capital of Quibdo with central Colombia, but to make it to Bahia Solano on the pacific coast you'll definitely have to fly. The best choice is to fly from Medellin Olaya airport in the city itself which handles regional air traffic and not be be confused with Rionegro airport which handles international traffic and is far from the city centre. Try visiting Satena airlines website where you can get an estimate. ADA aerolinea de Antioquia also flies to Bahia Solano from Medellin with a stopover in Quibdo. about 8 years ago

    Where can I eat in Caracas?

    Caracas is a very expensive city and the quality standards of pricey restaurants leave a lot to be desired, customer service culture is almost non-existing and unfortunately is is the rule throughout the country. There are many places to eat but it all depends on your budget. Stick to fast food chains, they are ubiquitous in the city. about 8 years ago

    Hi I'm Canadian woman going to Colombia for 3 months. Was wondering about going to venezuela as well. An must visit locales? Safety issues?

    If I were you I would definitely avoid unnecessary travel to Venezuela. Crime is rampant and authorities extremely corrupt and incompetent. Venturing into Venezuela by crossing borders poses a high risk as Venezuelan officials, most of them involved with drug trafficking will try to get something from you, specially if you have blatant foreign features, stick to Colombia only. Hope that anytime Venezuela can overcome its poor safety issues. about 8 years ago
