About Costa Rica Electrical Routes.  The goal of the program is to install charging points along access routes to and in communities. This is a support network that allows travelers with electric vehicles to reach a community, where companies and organizations offer 240V connection or semi-rapid chargers (L2). In this way, people can travel without the so-called range anxiety, without contaminating the environment, and charging with purpose. You can obtain more information by entering
