    So I lost my passport in Guatemala and got a temp one with only 6pages. The full sized one is on it's way to Columbia, while I dive and sail on over to Columbia.

    I'm now in Nicaragua and only have one page and a half left and realise that there is no way I'm gonna get to Columbia with it. So gonna try to the passport ship to Costa or Panama if possible.

    My question is, to those who know, how big are the entry stamps for costarica and Panama? Combining entry and exit stamps, would they fit on 1 and 2/3 pages?

    Thanks...

    you sure? the ones for hunduras alone hardly fit into one page and that's because I instructed them to put it all on the same page...

    I sent them an email this morning (they don't take phone calls) to see what can be done...

    the website lists numbers, may just be automated though. i'm in miami now so i didn't try calling. if you are in the country, why not just show up? sometimes (not always :baldy) being there i person makes a difference.

    also, i assume you're talking about the stamps for the entry permits for the bike. the immigration stamps for CR and panama are not that big.

    I wouldn't worry about it. They just stamp a piece of paper and put it loose leaf in your passport, I've run out of space twice in my life and it's not unusual.

    Looks like I'll be ok. I've managed to get every one to use up as little space (not waste). Now in Panama and have a full page left and a little bit on an other one! :)
