  • *All* vehicles will have water exiting the tailpipe. It's a product of the combustion process. A big problem with flood vehicles is corrosion of the wiring, eventually. Kurt [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • We went to Panama /Paso Canoas last week for a new visa stamp. Yes, we had to pay the $7 at the bank at the border. Panama asked to see the exit ticket (but not proof of $). Stayed for lunch - 2 hours - and came right back. No issues, but had to have a ticket for CR too. Kurt [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

We have a RAV4 and I assume we can drive in from the...

  • Does the change in the exchange rate affect car prices in colones? That is, is there inflation in car prices? Or another way of looking at it: are cars valued in dollars or colones? Thanks! Kurt (who will be selling a RAV4 in the near future)

  • Panama asked for the airplane ticket like it was as important/expected as the passport. This was at Sixaola. CR asked for a ticket the same way (at Canoas). I don't think either would have let us thru without.

  • Can you use a Claro (CR) phone/chip in Panama? Is there any advantage cause it's a Claro phone (and Claro is available in Panama) or is it just as easy to go buy a Claro chip when we get to Panama? We currently have Kolbi, btw. Thanks! Kurt
