* We are tracking inter-country transportation separately. In the case of Costa Rica, we used credit card points to fly from Atlanta to San Jose on Delta Airlines and spent $115 for the Interbus ride to Panama City, Panama.
If I understand this, the problem is you are sleeping every night.
Well, there was that 24 hour overnight travel extravaganza… but if we could just have a free room every night, it sure would be cheaper!
