There are two propane plants

There are two propane plants just East of David Panama.  Here I was able to fill my US style tank easily with no adaptor.  In Central America you generally do not need your own adaptor if you get your propane from the larger gas plants.

There are two gas plants located just east of David Panama.  When filling here you won't need any adaptor if you have a US tank.  If you go to a large plant, you shouldn't need an adaptor for anywhere in Central America.

LPG in Costa Rica

If your LP tank has a standard LPG Acme Fitting (see google images) there is an LPG filling station in Ciudad Quesada, its where the LP cars/taxis fill up. The station is located within but above the city, you would have to ask how to get there as I don't remember. Another option for people traveling with the Acme fitting is to simply flag down a small propane delivery truck and have the driver fill your tank. It seems that all of the small (not 18 wheeler) trucks throughout Central and South America are equiped with this particular nozzle. We had no more difficulties with propane once we figured it out.

Safe travels,
