My moto friends would have loved the ride from Costa Rico ( around Palmar Norte) to Volcan, Panama. There are 140,000 acres of protected National Parks between the 2 countries. The ride was spectacular in the mountains with fields of coffee, sugar cane and wild flowers everywhere. I chose a remote border crossing that was only accessible by dirt road as I do not like the hectic chaotic scenes at the regular borders. It was a beautiful crossing with only locals and a handful of back packers. However, as crossings go, it still took 3 hrs to get all the paper work and insurance done. I stayed in Volcan, Panama for a few days as i met some local expats that showed me around. Thank You Emily and John !!
