Island Girl in Central America
Island Girl reached Guatemala on 17 October, and by late afternoon of 20 October had flown another 973 km (605 mi) as she passed through Guatemala, Honduras, the northeastern tip of El Salvador, and most of Nicaragua. She had been following her usual route through the interior highlands of those countries, and her latest GPS signal on the 20th shows her veering more easterly back toward the Caribbean coastline in southeast Nicaragua. She will typically stay with the Caribbean coast through Costa Rica and part of Panama before crossing over to the Pacific side for the remainder of her journey.
