Darien Gap? Container leaving Panama City for Cartegena 11/27/09
I met a Mexican fella at the Costa Rica/Panama border who was planning on driving around South America. We got to chatting about how to do this, and I gave him a couple tips on freight shippers.
The quote I received from Girag was for $910 one way, just for the bike, which is obscene. I may be an eccentric world traveler, but I ain´t a rich eccentric world traveller, so was planning on heading back to the states.
Well, I just bumped into this fella in the lobby of my hotel here in Panama City, and he mentioned that he made arrangements to book a 40 ft. container, and asked if I was interested in joining to split the cost.
His vehicle will take up only half the container, max, so that leaves room for 4-6 bikes, with gear. So, if there´s anybody who wants to come with, please get in touch right away. The shipping company needs all the documentation by Tuesday (11/24/09).
For future reference, the shipping company is:
Johana M. Jaen
China Shipping Agency, South America
ASR Tower, Floor 11
58 St., Samuel Lewis Ave.
POB 0832-2771, WTC
Panama, Republic of Panama
:: China Shipping Agency Central America ::
As of 11/21/09, prices from Panama City to Cartegena are:
$950 USD - 40 ft. Container
$850 USD - 20 ft. Container
The Mexican fella making the trip is named Francisco Martinez, here is his email:
If anybody wants to join up, please contact me first:
Sent you an email, but my internet is spotty at best. Am out next to the Tocumen) airport. Could commit tomorrow, but need to know about the rumored difficulties recently in Cartegena (¨confiscated¨ bikes, etc.).
