    Hi newboy,

    Welcome to Travelfish.

    We've not heard anything about this border crossing being closed. As far as we are aware it remains open for business as usual.

    Scams used to be a bigger problem than they are now -- mainly related to boatman mafia -- you're best to try to cross with a few others to keep your costs for the boat down a little. Also don't be suprised when the customs officers ask you for a buck or two...

    A month is a good period of time for a trip like that.

    Have fun!
