Driving is a nightmare in some places.

I really hope that in the future the car pooling  start in Panama. In Europe the car pooling is a good way to share couple of hour of drive.
And you know...
Lot of care are for solo driver... traffic jam can be half or evem 1/4 if someone more share the drive.

A lot of beautiful spots in Panama are not well connected. I am here as a Tourist and Blablacar would be perfect too!

I really hope that alot of things happen.  Show me, please.
