more border stuff and other problems in c.a.
I forgot to mention in my previous post on border crossings to C.A. from U.S total wait time 13hrs!
Since these crossings took all my travel money I had to use some plastic or travelers checks.
No one, no business, no bank or hotel will accept my travellers checks, its like I have $600 in my pocket that is useless. One bank in El Salvador yesterday would not take either my debit, or my mastercard. Luckily I had a Visa which is just about tapped out now, because banks and machines won't take anything else. I have money, but can't get at it, again if I knew I would be putting out so much money at the borders to cross I would have brought more cash, but I thought thats what atm's, banks and travellers checks are for. Who walks around with all there liquid cash on them?
Any suggestions would be appreciated, I wanted to go all the way thru Panama, but if its going to be another $150 and cancel's everythiing in Costa Rica just to visit for a few days why bother. As it is my plans are seriously crimped by border crossing fees..... and to think everytime I drive out of one country into another one, even though I will be returning thru back to the u.s. in a month or so I just had to cancel everything I just paid for to get thru, it makes no sense, need some helpful advice here.....thanks
