I chose the S95 because it is small enough to fit in my pocket. If you don't mind a slightly larger size, the Canon G series cameras are excellent.

How did you circumvent the Darian? Any recommendations? Ride safe.....!
I actually sent my bike using Girag Air Cargo, since I crossed in December during rough seas (most of the boats had stopped sailing until January). There have been some complaints about them but I had no issues whatsoever.

Unless the rumored Ferry to Colombia becomes reality by the time you're ready to cross, the usual and maybe best option is still to cross by boat through the San Blas islands. There are many reputable operations (such as the Stahlratte or Fritz the Cat) but perhaps avoid the MetaComet.

Canada to Argentina (in progress)
