ABOUT THE LIVING LIFE IN COSTA RICA BLOG

I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find here!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
VOLUNTEER TO HELP:
Better yet - do you have some time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love (that comes up often on the first pages of google searches) & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help going through & updating things. Let me know if you can help!! People that speak Spanish are ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

DONATE:
Has my blog helped you in any way? Helped you find something•given you more EASE? Brought more exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
ANY size DONATION is APPRECIATED!

RIDESHARES • RIDE SHARE • CARPOOLING • CARPOOL • SEEKING A RIDE • HITCH HIKING & Getting around by BUS - around Costa Rica



With gasoline in Costa Rica at nearly $6 a gallon - many people might be seeking a cheaper way to get around. 
RIDE SHARE - aka RIDESHARE • CARPOOLING
can be a cool option and LOTS cheaper
(PLEASE people - don't be a cheapo - CONTRIBUTE towards gas, parking and wear and tear!!!  Do YOU remember how expensive owning a car was???)

I've started to created a list of resources for various RIDE SHARE (aka RIDESHARE • CARPOOLING) around Costa Rica!

OTHER PLACES I'D LOOK OR POST MY REQUESTS FOR
RIDESHARE OR CARPOOLING
:

Various Facebook groups•pages, Destination pages, ExPat groups


MESSAGE BOARDS • FORUMS
groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/CostaRicaLiving - is the largest

NEWSLETTERS
Some destinations around Costa Rica have Newsletters



BULLETIN BOARDS AT:

HOSTELS
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.

COLLEGES
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!!

GETTING AROUND BY BUS!
