Infomation mainly to anyone driving a RHD vehicle through central america.
We are in the middle of our drive from Alaska to South America and Costa rica has put a stop to it, with a rule that you cannot drive a RHD on the roads in Costa Rica! It was indicated that maybe for $200 you could get the insurance, but then you would have to pay further additional fee's to the police. Once in Costa Rica any police checks would entail further payments. No doubt the police would notifiy colleagues at a check point down the road to our situation and be ready to collect!
El Savador, Bolivia and Chile have similar rules.
We are now looking to ship in a container from a more northerly Central American country. Has anyone shipped from a Central American country to South America?
