    Mike at Casa Blanca in Cali does a LOT of that. He lives up in Medellin now, so try to get in touch with him in advance.

    Chachi, a WayĂșu woman whose business is exactly that: parking for Venezuelans or Colombians leaving their vehicles while they go in the neighboring country. As it is right at the border no paperworks problems, you sign the bike out of Colombia and don't enter Venezuela. When you come back, you just enter or Venezuela or Colombia...
    for bikes she puts them in a kind of locker, very safe but dusty. I have years leaving my bike there when required, for a few days up to a few months.

    My spelling is never the best,, Thanks, but probably look for a place further south.. Having a great time in Cartagena but after 2 days of aduana, insurance, and unloading, looking to put some clicks on and see Columbia and away from the city. :thumb. Met a guy from Ecuador who offered to storage but he does not have any connections at aduana. Having a blast, smiles!!

    Mike is actually still in Cali, and has a new much larger headquarters. No longer owns the hostel as he is now focused 100% on Motolombia. Website is still the same for contact information: www.motolombia.com
