Panamericana Travel System – Travel to the Americas on a Budget
The Pan-American Highway, or Route 40 in the case of Colombia, is a 30,000-kilometre-long (21,600 mi) network of interconnecting roads that link most of the Americas. It is the world’s longest motorable road, and has some of the most scenic scenery in the region.
The best part is that it’s relatively cheap. In fact, it has become so affordable that some travelers are making the trek in their own cars, despite the fact that the vast majority of the routes are dirt or paved, and often with only two lanes to speak of.
Most people will agree that the best way to experience this is by traveling in a group or on an organised tour, but for those of you who like the idea of getting away from it all, there are some excellent budget alternatives available too.
One of the most important things to bear in mind is that although it is possible to visit the most remote parts of Latin America by air, the best way to get a good feel for the real thing is on the ground. For example, in the Caribbean, you could travel via bus or train to the Dominican Republic or Cuba, while in Costa Rica you’d be better off on foot or by road.
What’s more, this nifty little road trip is not just about taking in the sights, but also experiencing the cultural delights of each destination. The best way to do this is with a little help from an expert.
