Re: Cycling couple looking to cross the Darien gap or more (End June 2012)
Simply show up in Portabello and ask around (go to Captain Jack's). Lots of boats hauling backpackers, bicyclists and motorcyclists back and forth between Columbia and Panama. You may even get a few days in the San Blas out of it.

Thanks for the subsequent suggestions.
Wow, I didn't exactly do much research before and now I realise it will cost an entire month's cycling budget to get over to Columbia via the boats. We found a new ferryservice operating between Panama and Columbia and will be researching more into that.
