    In octobre we will start our trip from Ontario, Canada to Costa Rica and back again. We have 6 months to do so. Question: can we use the TIP's on our way back? Or do we have to cancel when we leave a country and get a new one on our way back? We need a second entree for Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatamala and Mexico. Thanx for all help, grt, Albert, Holland
  2. Each country is different and it depends on your timing.

    I know you can get a 6 month tip for Mexico and if you don't cancel it then you can reenter with it.

    Guatemala gives you a 90 day tip. If you don't cancel it you can reenter with it.

    Don't know about reentry in Honduras or Nicaragua, but Nicaragua only gives 30 day TIP. So, if they do allow reentry you would have to drive through Nicaragua, Costa, back through Costa and back through Nicaragua all in 30 days.

    Another thing to consider in your timing is that if you do cancel your Guatemalan Tip you must stay out of the country for at least 90 days before they will issue you a new one.
