Quick question - does anyone know anything about buying a car to tour latin america?
My friend and I are thinking about buying a car and touring down through Mexico to Colombia. We don't want to be stuck on buses for days on end (suffered enough 17 hour nightmares previously) and rental prices are just too high to be feasible for 10 weeks.
Am thinking of buying a cheap car in mexico city and using that, but wondering what the issues are around being a British person driving a foreign car across borders. Do you end up paying import tax each time? Additionally need to work out how we'd get insured. Any advice would be very welcome.
