I'll update this with El SalvAdor on the way home just wanted to write this down while I can still remember.

Enter Guatemala $7.00 (40 quetzals entry, 12 quetzals spray bike)
Exit Guatemala 3.00 (20 quetzals)

Enter Honduras $34.72 (625 lempiras)
Exit Honduras $2.00 U.S.

Enter Nicaragua $7.50 (150 Cordobas)
Mandatory insurance $12.00 (240 Cordobas)
Exit Nicaragua $2.50 (50 cordobas)

Enter Costa Rica $13.32 (7400 colones) includes insurance
spray bike $3.00
Exit Costa Rica nothing

Enter Panama $15.00 mandatory insurance
spray bike $1.00
Exit Panama

money exchange rates for paying fees

Mexico 12.35 pesos/dollar
Guatemala 7.5 quetzals/dollar
Honduras 18 lempiras/dollar
Nicaragua 20 cordobas/dollar
Costa Rica 545 colones/dollar

These are the prices money changers will give you to get through the border until you can get to an ATM or bank to get a better deal.

Hopes this is of use to someone.

Best regards,
John Downs
