The old bridge crossing the Sixaola River from Costa Rica into Panama now

Photo by Jim Mac Dougall who remembers crossing it for the first time 22 years ago and other memories "like the time they turned on the poison spray as I walked the time a locomotive came travelers in every rolling bag's wheels getting caught on the rough boards...."

This was such an atmospheric way to cross the border but it sure feels a little safer now. You can see the new bridge and crossing details now at the Puerto Viejo-Bocas transport page.
