shipping a 4x4 - central to south america.

Hi.

currently in Mexico and working way down to Costa Rica / Panama.
then plan to ship truck to South america, any country, just whichever is lowest price for shipping.

Need up to date information and maybe a contact or two for arranging this shipping.

It seems from research i have three options:
1) roro
2) container ( truck will fit as shipped from Russia via container)
3) lolo

option 3 is the one i'm particularly interested in . . . . .
aparently there are banana cargo boats regularly coming up from south america and they will lift on vehicles and transport back (usually i've been told this is from Costa Rica)

does anybody have any information that can help my planning ?????

thanks

Phil.
