Panama Passage Opens Overlander Resource Center in Panama City
Overland travelers now have a great place to stay and organize shipping and other logistics in Panama City.
Panama City, Panama, March 19, 2011 Finally, overlanders can get help in arranging their crossing of the Darien Gap and/or shipping of their vehicles to other destinations.
Panama Passage is now welcoming guests to its comfortable and convenient lodging and resource center in Panama City.
According to Panama Passage founder, Christian Pelletier, For decades, overlanders have been struggling with the crossing of the Darien Gap. Thousands of people ship across every year in motorcycles, cars and 4x4s. Yet until this day there was no permanent infrastructure in place to assist them with this process. Instead, overlanders had to start from scratch facing ever-changing, inconsistent local agents/shippers. Furthermore, Panama City was lacking overlander lodging with a place to fix and prepare their vehicles, exchange information and stories, and find others with whom to share shipping containers. Not any more.
Panama Passage is now open and welcoming all overlanders in Panama whether on bicycle, motorcycle, car, 4x4, large truck or foot. On site you will find a full range of accommodations, a workspace area, contacts, free Wi-Fi, a shipping matchmaking service as well as general shipping advice/assistance and more.
