Panama to Equador

this is Uli, a German, riding from Alaska to Argentina.
Does anyone got actual information concerning shipping a bike from Panama to Equador by air freight...?
Thanks for your help!
By the way, I am also searching for someone, who is heading the same way. At the moment I am in Playa del Carmen for a rest, going forward in December, riding a GS.
Ride safe everybody!

Don't Colombia

Colombia was fantastic and as the othe replies state it is very safe. We came from Cartagena to Panama in September on the Stahlratte and has a great time. Good boat, captain, food and lots of room.

Enjoy your trip.

When are you heading to South America?

when are you heading to South America? We'll be going there in October. Hopefully going to be crossing over from Columbia to Panama Feb/March 2012. Probably using the ship reccommended by Ken & Carol Duval.
Maybe we'll catch up?
