No maps, no hiking trails. - There was at least one more possible spot between here and the park entrance - starting at the entrance head west and after about 1 km on your right there is a steep dirt road leading down to the lake. The downside is that you are easily visible from the ranger's office/park entrance there, and the ranger specifically told us that this is a park area and we need to pay the entrance to be there.

Great option to rest in this otherwise very remote stretch of road. Dorm beds and cabins, $12 and up. Pretty sure Elsa, the inn keeper will accommodate tents as well (unsure of price). Road up from highway is steep and a little rough but doable for off-road capable bikes. Parking ok for motorbikes and maybe 1 or 2 cars.

There is not always a boat going there each day, so you might have to come back a few days. Each trip can vary on price, duration, and destination, but it can reduce shipping or sailing cost in half. There is immigration and ADUANA officials at the port, therefore you don't need to go anywhere for it. My voyage was $500 for a three day trip to Capurgana, Colombia. There I needed to take a small boat for cheap to Turbo, the closest road. On the 3 day ride I am covered for 3 meals a day, a "bed", and stopping throughout the San Blas islands. Similar to sailing but much cheaper and rugged. My cheapest offer was $1200 for a traditional sail boat and I would have to wait 3 weeks. Ride safe!

General Info I would just really quickly like to make everyone feel better who is worrying about the shipping thing. We did RoRo with WWL yesterday without an agent. I was very worried about that day because the process and involved difficulty is put into a worse light than needed (in my opinion at least), so I would like to make a positive statement about it for once: IT IS NOT THAT BAD! Just like a big border day. You go to 3-4 different offices, then get your car inspected and off you go. Of course it is a little stressful, but if you have been ok with the borders, you will be ok here. Even more than ok, because people were much more helpful (locals and officials) than at many borders. Also to note: Fewer people than at borders and no pushy helpers. Just follow the steps 1-4 on iOverlander and you will be fine. We started at 8 o´clock at the office of the Shipping company (nicest office, but unfriendliest people of the day) and were done with it all by 1:30 pm. And if you need a wall to be put in behind your drivers compartment for roro: Procars in Panama City do it (on ioverlander) at around 50$. Agent: Not needed in my opinion with all the info available online etc. Police Inspection (Things I did not know): You can turn up at that parkinglot very early to draw a number if you want. Some people got Number 9 at 6 am (??!), but we got number 14 at 7:30 am and did not have to wait long to have the car inspected, so I think it is not worth it getting there THAT early. One thing which did take much longer than expected (and was a problem for others because they had an appointment with their agent or something) was picking up the Papers at 2. We waited for over an hour, so have that time accounted for. Road from Panama City to Colon (also very diff. to find info): Panapass is only for the coredor norte, not for the road to Colon. If you get out of the city without the Coredor norte (no problem really), then you will get to a "cuota" road to colon at some point. Here you pay 2,50$ cash and off you ride.
