National strike disrupts fuel deliveries to Caribbean coast

The MEPE bus company has had to reduce some bus services from Limon to Puerto Viejo, Manzanillo and Sixaola (see photo) due to fuel shortages. As well the gas station in Hone Creek ran out of gas several times over the weekend and may be out again as fuel drivers get caught up in blockades. If you're driving, make sure to fill up whenever you can. If you're taking the bus or a shuttle, double check schedules and allow extra time as some have needed to reroute due to blockades.

La huelga nacional interrumpe las entregas de combustible a la costa del Caribe. La compañía de autobuses MEPE ha tenido que reducir algunos servicios de autobús desde Limón a Puerto Viejo, Manzanillo y Sixaola (ver foto) debido a la escasez de combustible. Además, la gasolinera en Hone Creek se quedó sin combustible varias veces durante el fin de semana y puede estar sin gasolina otra vez. Es difícil para recibir entregas nuevas de combustible porque los camiones quedan atrapados en bloqueos. Si está conduciendo, asegúrese de llenar cada vez que pueda. Si está tomando el autobús o un shuttle, revise los horarios y espere más tiempo, ya que algunos han tenido que cambiar su ruta debido a bloqueos.
