The Amazon-Guyanas Loop: Parameters
Home again after two months and two weeks on the road, having started from Canada on August 1. For you, trip planners, some data: Total road distance travelled from Ottawa, Can. to Panama-Bogota-Manaus-Belem-Macapa-Oiapoque-Cayenne-Paramaribo-Georgetown-Boa Vista-Bogota-Panama-Ottawa: 28,000km. By air with Girag (Panama-Bogota-Panama) $400 for bike, $200 for rider (Avianca) each time. Two boats on Amazon (Manaus-Belem, 5 days; Belem-Macapa, 2 days) 6 ferries. No problem in dry season. Therefore August departure. But it still rains sometimes, even in dry season, therefore expect mud in Guyana, and more mud in Guatemala and Mexico, thanks to Hurricane Stan. A great trip. South America with a difference. I would do it again, same route. Highly recommended.
