Central America Overland Budget. We spent 121 days travelling through Central America. 

Border crossing costs include insurance, temporary import costs, any entry/exit costs.

Transport cost includes the shipping between Panama and Colombia ($600USD)

The Van maintenance was mainly due to having to buy a new gearbox in Guatemala. 

Food equates to grocery shopping, where eating out.

Country specific budgets can be found here; Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, NicaraguaCosta Rica,Panama

This budget, although it seems ok we felt was a bit tight. Our way of travelling is that we like to splurge on activities and do as many new experiences as possible regardless of cost.
