For millennia people and merchandise have been crossing the Darien Gap between Panama and Columbia. Today, many of these crossings, via rivers and dirt tracks, are illegal. Drug dealers make the hazardous journey across, but also their victims, indigenous people fleeing from the havoc caused by deforestation, drug related violence and civil war in Columbia. They join peasants, entrepreneurs, gold miners, adventurers, and hunters looking for jaguars, crocodiles and snakes. All sorts of colourful people can be found in the Darien gap.
