Something not right?

Description

Long-term vehicle parking and storage option.

La Amistad offers about 40 covered parking spaces (high vehicles won't fit) and open field parking in a large, enclosed space.

I stored my truck here for 10 months, under the covered parking for 40.000 pesos per month.

There is an electrical shop beside the parking lot who were able to give me a jump when I returned to the truck (since nobody would give me a jump in the parking lot).

They have cameras on the premises, and I was very happy to get back to my truck and see that everything was just as I left it, no problems. The parking lot is a short walk from the bus terminal in Ipiales.

Ipiales is sort of the no-man's land between the borders, so it is possible to turn in your temporary import permit to the DIAN, flip a U-Turn back into Ipiales and park for the long-term.

We traveled from Cartagena, and turned the paperwork in at the Ipiales border before turning around and parking lot. Upon returning to the truck we will finish the rest of South America.

This strategy works for south-bound travel at the least, but I'm sure you could also make it work for north bound travel. Perhaps by getting the TIP at the border, then going to park the vehicle, and turning in the TIP at the border again.

Latest Check-Ins

very good place to leave a vehicle. We are 7.25 long and had no issues leaving our truck and camper here for 3 months. The place is nothing much to look at, but family live on premise so we felt it safer than alternatives in town.

as stated before this is a good option to leave your car for a while without trouble.

you can drive to the border, cancel the importation (just hand in the dian papers, maybe keep a copy) and then do an u turn and drive back to ipiales. you are then technically illegally in Ecuador with your vehicle so drive straight to the garage. when you pick up your car, drive straight to the border to get a new importation (for Colombia or Ecuador).

storage costs around 15 dollars per month. Eduardo is super friendly and we were even allowed to sleep one night there. The parking is called la amistad, but the outside wall painting says lemaye.

Eduardo has undercover long term parking next to bus station. there are other motorcycles here from Germany.
15$ per month. catch a bus to Bogota 40$. fly home for a few months. 5kms from border.
