Shipping Vehicle from Colon to Cartagena

Hello, my friend and I are just entering Cost Rica heading south to Panama and will be looking for a container ship to transport our Toyota truck to Cartagena. Has anyone had a recent experience doing that and can give us some advice as to the best company? We are a bit language challenged. Thanks!

I'm currently in Playa

I'm currently in Playa Hermosa (south of Jaco). I am planning to ship around the 16th from Panama. Thinking I will go with Seaboard Marine ($990 all in + custom fees). I've heard a lot of good reviews online about them and from the carriers I spoke with they seem the most "on the ball". I've also recently met a couple roadtrippers who have used them.

If you would like to share a container with me give me a shout. I have one guy who is on the fence right now, but im looking for a secure partner as I'm trying to make it to Baranquilla, CO for Carnaval and don't want to diddle daddle with the shipping.

Shipping a vehicle from Panama to Columbia

Hi Doug,

we are currently Belize and are heading for Panama to ship to Cartagena. Currently have no exact time table but looking at mid march, could be flexible. Also thinking of using Seaboard Marine or ROZO & CO, both have been used by travellers before, so hopefully the process will be fine.

PM me if you want to share a container
