Panama to Colmbia - container shipping - mid/late April

Hola, I am looking to ship my VW camper van from Panama City to Cartagena, if any one else is looking to share costs around this time frame (we are flexible on dates) let me know.

Any past experiences or recommendations on companies can use would be appreciated.

Martin

Nissos Rodos - New Ferry Service Between Colon in Panama and Cartagena in Colombia

The Caribbean cities of Colon in Panama and Cartagena de Indias in Colombia will be connected as of 10 May 2012 by a new ferry service, which will cover the shipping route in about seven hours, said the general manager of the company Aventuras 2000, Augusto Terracina. "The intention is to be able to connect these two countries which have always had a good relationship in both the tourist and commercial sectors," said Terracina, as part of a press conference to announce the launch. Terracina said the ferry "Nissos Rodos" of the cruise line Panamerican Seaways has a capacity to carry approximately 1,500 people, but they will start running at about half capacity, and they will also be carrying shipping containers and automobiles.

Hi Byron, I just wrote you an email.

The new ferry service sounds interesting and may be worth considering, anyone know if this is definitely going to happen or could it be delayed in starting to run?

cheers
Martin

Share container

Hi everyone!

Just talked to the ferry people on the phone. The number is 380 0900. Motorcycle cost 85 each way, but you have to pay rountrip. Cars cost over 200 - sorry i don´t remember the exact price. You also have to buy a round trip. Apparently it is company policy.

I am in Panama City now. Am ready to leave now but am flexible with dates. Anyone still looking to share a container? My e-mail is Mail4nando@gmail.com I would like to leave before May 16th if possible.

Safe Travels!

Fernando

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
