Park US-Motorbike in Central-America for 8 Month
I'm planning to travel from Dallas to Ushuaia and back in stages. The first stage has to end in Honduras, Nicaragua, CostaRica or Panama, where I have to park my bike (KLR650-2009) for about 8 Month.
Of course I don't really want to import the bike officially or pay a lot of customs. As I heard, CostaRica is very strict regarding Vehicle-Import formalities. (max. 3 Month in country or import-tax of ca. $1300). Is these statement correct?
Does anybody know, if the Vehicle-Import-terms are same in all Central-America?
Does anybody know a cheap way to handle this situation? (Bribe, don't import but pay fee, etc.?
Thank you for your help
