22. 20 For a discussion of San Andrés Island, see “Colombia, Un ‘San Andresito’ De Armamento,” El País, August 22, 2000, p. 2; Lunazzi, Eduardo, “San Andres Se Pone En Guardia,” El Tiempo, October 16, 1994. p. 21 The geography of Managua is perfect for smuggling because it provides access to both land and water routes. 25 These weapons are then transported along the border between these two countries on the San Juan River to San Juan del Norte. 26 The second route begins with its collection point in Armuelles, Panama.

Like the countries in Central America, Colombia’s neighbors in South America also act as sources of small arms as well as transit routes. Yet, there is a crucial difference between Central America and Colombia’s neighbors as sources of illegal weapons: Colombia’s neighbors do not have the same available arms caches that Central American countries have. As a result, traffickers typically purchase weapons from criminal organizations, obtain them from internal legal markets, bribe private security forces to obtain them, or raid government military stockpiles.

Panama also acts as a minor base for illegal arms trafficking flights to Colombia. Planes fly from Panama into El Banco, Magdalena, or Acandí, Chocó. 81 Weapons are then transferred to vehicles and distributed overland (for a discussion on routes inside Colombia, see Chapter Four).
