Hitchhikers Katja and Augustas on the road in Panama.

Panama is a country in Central America where hitchhiking happens most readily. Roads north of Panama city are brilliant. Roads to the south are atrocious, and worsen as you approach Yavisa. Hitch-hiking is called viajar a lift, you can say you are buscando un lift hacia... (looking for a lift towards...).

Panama has borders with Costa Rica to the North and Colombia to the South. However, there are no roads to Colombia. To get to Colombia see the article on the Darien Gap
