We are planning to drive a Truck Camper and tow a trailer for our stuff...
We would like to travel from Canada to Florida and board a ship in Fl to Costa Rica

Anyone know if it is possible?

Not possible.

I should amend that to say that of course everything is possible if you have unlimited budget, but there is no easy drive-on-drive-off cargo service between Florida and Costa Rica.

Terry

I see by your other post that you're moving to Costa Rica.... if that's the case then instead of driving onto a boat in Florida - which is how I understood your Original Post and that's not possible - you have the option of putting everything into a 40' shipping container while you fly down to CR on your own. There's lots of shipping companies in Florida, start Googling.

I hope you've researched import duties into Costa Rica - especially vehicles - because they can be brutal....

Good luck.

Cheers,
Terry

One last comment... Something else to consider, on the long run you might be further ahead to ship everything in a container right from Montreal... like I said though, I really hope you've researched the import regulations into CR because they can be nasty...

Cheers,
Terry
