From what I know, the ban do apply on local plated cars. Many RHD Delica owners did road trips overthere including the notorious Dinoevo (http://dinoevo.de) :shock: There are South American Facebook Montero Groups, I know they have to convert their RHD to be able to register these ride ovethere, you can ask them if the ban apply to travellers too ? Keep in touch 8-)

I'm also interested in this.

I was JUST informed of the RHD ban in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. I was told no RHD vehicles are allowed at all. Not sure how accurate that is or not. Might want to check Expedition Portal or Overland Sphere for more accurate information.
