Documents needed for motorbike for Central and South America

Hello everyone.

I am driving a canadian plate motorbike from Canada to Tierra del Fuego. Does any know what documents I will need when at borders to satisfy customs (or other) requirements?

Theres the obvious proof of insurance and registration, but anything else?

Hello Ural Guy! In planning a

Hello Ural Guy! In planning a trip all the way through Central America, you need to understand that you will spend almost 2 entire days (16 hours) at border crossings. The countries you will cross at a minimum are: Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. You could cross El Salvador and Belize, if you choose to. Thus, as a minimum, you are going to cross (enter and exit) 5 international borders (twice on a round trip) and the US and Panama coming and going. You really do want to get this part of your trip in order. With crossings sometimes taking between 2 and 4 hours, they can be the most stressful part of the trip. If you are a citizen of another country, you’'ll have to do some additional research to verify the visa, border crossing legalities, vehicle importation laws, etc that apply to you and your vehicle.
