Traveling within Costa Rica

Taking a taxis or cab in Costa Rica is probably the best and easiest way to travel within the country. The cabs are red in color. Before you take a taxi it is best that you ask how much the trip will cost. (As you should anywhere else) Never ride in a taxi with a broken meter. Some taxis are own by semi-independent owners called “Cooperativas,” while others are either privately owned cabs or are “pirate taxis”. It is best to avoid pirate taxis. There have been cases of robberies. Pirate taxis are usually a totally different color, and has no meter. If one wants to provide service to you, just politely say no.
