We have a Chilean car and we need advice!


We are couple from California and travelled through South America last year (Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru).

We purchased a car in January 2015 in Santiago, Chile (Its a 2004 Subaru Outback). After travelling through the countries listed above we finally reached Lima,Peru in April. Due to personal reasons we had to cut short our trip in Lima and head back to California.

Is there any car age limit in Panama, Costa Rica or Nicaragua

Hello friends,

is anybody aware of any limitation to how old a car can be to drive in Panama, Costa Rica or Nicaragua?

Also, does anybody know how long does it take to clear customs in Panama once the car is docked after having being shipped from the States?

Thanks a lot

Entering Chile by own car, leaving by plane

My girlfriend and I are travelling through North and South America since April 2013. In February we will sell our car in Santiago de Chile (registered in my name in BC, Canada) to fellow travellers from South Africa.

Does anybody have recent experience if it is possible to leave Chile by air after entering with a car (e.g. flying home for 'holiday' or after selling a car)? Is there a link between my customs document for the car and immigration? Of course we will take care that the car leaves Chile before the customs declaration expires.
