Ship by Air to South America

People sometimes decide they want to ship their bike by sea because it is a lot cheaper.

You might be surprised at how long you have to wait for your bike. I know of a German couple who waited more than eight weeks after the scheduled delivery date for their bikes to arrive in Valparaiso.

The best way to ship a bike to the southern cone, from what I've seen, is to send it on a plane to Santiago. It takes you about an hour and a half to get the bike out, and the freight forwarder might even meet you at the airport and expedite matters.

Shipping by air out of BA took me the good part of three days, and I speak fairly good Spanish and had a very attractive Colombian woman with me.
