Hey guys, I am backpacking 2 month in Colombia, Peru and Bolivia between September-November. What do you think about my rough itinerary?

I see one overnight nonstop flight to Panama City, but wondering if anyone else has flown from SFO to Colombia, and where to stop for a night or two before flying to Cartagena.
