With gasoline in Costa Rica at nearly $7 a gallon - many people might be seeking a cheaper way to get around.
I've started to created a list of resources for various RIDE SHARE (aka RIDESHARE • CARPOOLING) around Costa Rica!
COSTA RICA Carpooling

Costa Rica BORDER Run RIDESHARES and Buddys
This is MY BABY I'm getting ready to birth!!!!
I haven't announced this yet so bookmark it as once I get some content on it (like info on various destinations to visit on border runs, or how to get there, etc.) I'll let the world know!!
The intention of this page is to help people have MORE FUN and an EASIER Visa Run going from Costa Rica to Nicaragua or Panama!!!!!!!!!!!
OUTSIDE OF COSTA RICA BUT YOU MIGHT NEED ONCE YOU GET THERE:
OTHER PLACES I'D LOOK OR POST MY REQUESTS FOR RIDESHARE OR CARPOOLING:
MESSAGE BOARDS • FORUMS
BULLETIN BOARDS AT:
See if Hostels have a Bulletin Board and post what you're offering - and/or on their Facebook Pages!!! They may only allow those seeking rides to post if they're their clients.
Students are OFTEN seeking rides - especially in Costa Rica since MANY younger people don't have cars.
TAXI's and Tourism Van Drivers
MANY taxi's and Tourism Van Drivers have to "Dead Head" one way (go one direction with NO clients). I think someone would be WISE to start a page•group where they could post GREATLY Discounted rides for those trips - cheaper than the shuttles.
If you know a driver - you might suggest that idea to him and if I find such a page I'll share it here! It's MUCH NEEDED!!
