Talking Colombia to Florida air cargo around $650US

To return I recommend Veronica Mosquera at Lyncargo in Bogota Colombia. They shipped my 650 Dakar to Florida for around $650 with hand holding service. I got JetBlue back for around $275. May take most of a week in Bogota but don't spend it near the airport.

It is nice to zig zag across the US on side roads after such a trip. :) Do Tail of the Dragon, Sturges, Idaho, roads around Moab Utah etc.
Was funny passing riders huddled under overpasses in a storm, wave or chat then keep riding. Rain? Silly rain or mud doesn't stop an ADV rider after they conquer SA!

Here is Veronica's contact info:
Veronica Mosquera
Av Calle 24 #95 A-80 Office 302
Bogota, D. C. Colombia
veronicam@lyncargo.com
Skype: veronikitamo (I think)
Phone + (57-1) 742-5850

Check the address as it is much further north than my GPS showed in a big black and yellow building marked "Business Center" above the garage entrance. It is past Carrera 95. 4° 40.597'N, 74° 7.749'W on google earth.

I have seen the ferry in Cartagena and met the poor guys who took it!
They say it was a horror trip!
the 24 hours turned to 6 days!!! of floating around and trying to get a permit to go on shore. new promises every day, a toilet that you better do not enter, bad hammocks (no beds) and pasta and meat day in day out, topped by a "psychotic"owner...I would NOT take it, if it ever sails again!

Thumbs up for the Stahlratte, great boat and crew! Fantastic trip!

Thumb Please post anymore here

From the post on Horizon, the "Ferry" service is not quite there yet. We are currently in Antigua Guatemala and plan to ship via air. A bit pricier but quick efficient and reliable according to the research I have done.

Wake up!
This ferry is a joke! Even if they solve their problems in future, even if they get their permits and a place to harbour, it is still not safe, not reliable, not cheap and no fun!
