The Darien Gap is a break in the Pan-American Highway with a length of 60 miles without roads. It makes that overland travel across Central America is pretty much impossible.  This gap has has been successfully crossed a handful of times - usually by expeditions equipped with off-road vehicles and staffed by special forces types, a near-impenetrable jungle that guerrilla fighters and drug runners call home.

The Pan-American Highway is one of the biggest adventures in the world. It’s a network of roads covering almost 48,000 kilometres (30,000 mi) from North America to South America.

 

Volcancito Road is a spectacular 4x4 route climbing up to the Volcán Barú (also called Volcán de Chiriqui), the tallest mountain in Panama, at an elevation of 3,474 metres (11,398 ft) above the sea level. The road starts in David, capital of the province of Chiriquí, and it has a length of 58,8km.
