Bringing vehicle to Costa Rica

Post Posted: Sat Dec 01, 2007 12:18 am

I would like to bring my 1966 Triumph Tr4 A to Costa Rica but have heard of high import duties, emission requirements, etc. If anyone could help me with information regarding this situation, it would be greatly appreciated.

Yes taxes on importing vehicles to Costa Rica is high but then again the prices of cars here are about double what they cost in the USA.

It's quite likely that because the car is considered old and a classic that you may not be required to pay any tax.
