Led by smugglers armed with knives and machetes, Mayra Reyes and 14 other Cubans sloshed through swamps and rivers and suffered hordes of mosquitoes, as they struggled across the notorious Darien Gap between Panama and Colombia, the only north-south stretch of the Americas to defy road-builders.
"We don't know what kind of problems we'll face in the rest of the countries," she said. "We have heard from other Cubans that it is possible to reach Mexico's borders with the United States."
Mildred Morales, a 34-year-old Cuban nurse who was part of Ms. Reyes' group, said she paid $300 just to cross the border into Panama.
