Walker Bay has a factory in Mexico and has excellent service. You could easily ship to Tapachula and grab a bus to the DHL office there. They shipped new tubes for ours to Acapulco when it was slashed earlier this year in Z Town

Re: Shipping to Costa Rica or Panama

There is a service offered here in Panama City called Gente de Mar (Freind of the Sea). They work hard to serve the local cruising community and can ship anything you need AND delivered right to your boat! Yes really! Easy. The local cruising community use them for many other daily services as well (laundry, water, fuel, dive tanks filled, propane, etc...). website is below
