I am planning Ticabus travel from Guatemala city(GC) to Panama city(PC). I am planning to fly in GC from US stay there for couple of days and take Ticabus to PC and fly back to US from PC. I thought it will nice to ride in comfortable bus thru 6 Central American countries. I have seen Ticabus schedule and it stops overnight in El Salvador(San Salvador?) and
Nicaragua(Managua?). I have few questions.
1. First of all how safe the journey is from start to end?
2. When it stops overnight are there hotels nearby in these cities and how safe is it to go around in the evening from bus terminal to the hotel.
3. How easy or difficult it is to cross the borders from Guatemala-El Salvador-Honduras-Nicaragua-Costa Rica to Panama in Ticbus.
