The Pan American Highway is said to connect almost every mainland country in the Americas. It forms a continuous network of highways, bar for one 60 mile hiatus in Panamanian rain forest, called Darién Gap.
Looking at the map of the Pan American Highway, I was amazed by how often my Journeys have coincide with it. I’ve come across it no end of times in the USA and Canada. And in the last 12 months alone, I’ve encountered stretches of the highway in no fewer than four Central and South American Countries.
In Panama, we drove on it through Panama City and sailed under it when we entered the Panama Canal.
In Peru we saw it in every place we visited, from Trujillo to Lima. We even looked down on it from the air during our flight over the Nazca Lines.
In Chile we travelled along sections in and around La Serena, Santiago and Puerto Montt.
In Argentina, we used it in Buenos Aires, Puerto Madryn and Ushuaia. We even visited its southernmost end in Tierra del Fuego National Park.
