  • The method you choose to get your bike to the U.S. port: Options include self-delivery to the port, which is less expensive, or utilizing our truck drivers for transport from your home to the port, which is more costly.
  • The size of your motorcycle: Shipping costs are influenced by vehicle size, with larger bikes incurring higher fees compared to smaller ones.

Shipping Method for Shipping a Motorcycle to Costa Rica

Our shipping vessels depart weekly from each of the four U.S. seaports mentioned earlier to Puerto Limon. Please note that we exclusively provide RoRo shipping services; container shipping to Costa Rica is not available.

Roll-On/Roll-Off (RoRo) Shipping

RoRo shipping provides a cost-effective and efficient solution with dependable departure and arrival schedules. Motorcycles are securely fastened to the deck, shielded from ocean exposure, ensuring optimal protection against the elements.

This is our preferred and widely favored option, offering both convenience and affordability. This method is suitable for wheeled vehicles including motorcycles, cars, motorhomes, campers, trailers, buses, construction vehicles, and boats, capable of self-propelled loading onto the ship. Upon boarding the vessel, each motorcycle is firmly secured in place.
