South from Panama

Our plans to cross the Pacific this year have had to be postponed and we plan to go south from Panama to Ecuador, Peru and perhaps Chile.

I know what the pilot chats say but has anyone any personal experience with this route?

Re: South from Panama

We only went as far south as Ecuador which was pretty easy, if slow sailing. We met a couple of boats that were going to southern Chile and they both went Ecuador, Galapagos, Easter, Valdivia. I think they believed the pilot chart. We went via land as far south as southern Peru, the coast line seemed quite forbidding with relatively few harbours along the way.
