Hey

My Uncle and cousin did that a few months ago and my cousin put all her travel details on a blog Latitude54.blogspot.com Sorry I can't highlight it for you,(I'm new at the computer thing) but she would be more than happy to answer any questions you have.
Cheers

In October I flew my bike from Panama City to Bogota with Girag. They are located at the air freight terminal at the international airport in Tocumen. $501, no surprises. Didn't have to crate the bike, but did have to drain fuel and disconnect battery. Don't know what bike you have, but you need to ride down a set of stairs to get out of their warehouse in Bogota. There is a fuel station one km away. I flew Avianca for $260.

Since I asked the original question, I thought I should finish the thread off with my experience. It is posted on the Shipping Reports site. Thanks to AndyT and Rick because with their details it was less stressful and actually easy.

Think this is the one you`re looking for. If you do find a ┬┤reliable┬┤ boat going the other way, please please please let me know!!

Actually, I remember another thread where someone actually gave contact info for a guy sailing out of Panama.

Also, I heard that Smellybiker (who is Happy Hacker here I think?) had a bad experience shipping from Cartagena to Panama. Wouldn't anyone who goes one way go the other.
