|Meet fellow hitchhikers on Trustroots|
There are borders with Costa Rica in the North and Colombia in the South. However, there are no roads to Colombia. There is a way to go through the jungle but it's extremely dangerous due to the Colombian 'guerillas'.
It is possible to hitchhike a boat from Panama to Colombia or Ecuador so you don't have to cross the Darien Gap. On the Caribbean coast you may find boats in Bocas del Toro, right on the canal or in Portobello. In Portobello you should be able to jump on a charter boad to Cartagena, Colombia (~325 US).
On the pacific coast the situation of the marinas is difficult. In order to find boats heading to Colombia or Ecuador you should try the Balboa Yacht Club.
