This was exciting. Getting to walk across the boarder and see the old bridge. It's cool. Customs in Panama was a little confusing, but manageable.

Walking across the bridge is hot but fun. You can stand in the middle of the bridge and be on the line between Panama and Costa Rica. Avoid peak travel times or you will be in custom lines FOREVER
