My driver was very friendly and provided great tips for Costa Rica throughout the drive. My driver wasn’t waiting for me when I arrived but customer service was quick to respond and reached out to the driver. It was great to know I was being taken care of and I felt very safe.

Small but it fit
Grisel_P, Mar 2024
Was expecting an actual van or suv but was picked up by a small vehicle. Luckily the luggages fit in the trunk or it would've been an issue. The driver was friendly & outgoing.

Prompt pickup on the airport and drop off at the designated hotel
Gesa_C, Mar 2024
The pickup at the airport in San Jose, Costa Rica was on time. The gentleman (driver) who met us on the airport was super! Kudos to him. The drop off at the hotel was as quick as traffic permitted. I recommend Viator shuttle service in foreign countries.

Get an Uber
Monique_B, Jan 2024
Small sedan picked us up, so picture of spacious van is quite misleading. Took some time to locate the driver, but finally did so. Just book an Uber; it’s less expensive (& it’s safe) and you choose what type of vehicle you’d like to book.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Dear Customer, Thank you very much for your opinion, the vehicles we use have insurance policies and tourist license. In Costa Rica Uber is not legal, therefore in case of an accident you would not be covered by any insurance, also taking an uber at the airport is impossible, as it is a restricted area. Best regards,
Efficient airport transfer.
Roberta_D, Jan 2024
It was just a transfer from the airport to our hotel. Lots of traffic at the airport so it took a while to find our driver but other than that the experience was fine.

Awful service. They...
Kainia_C, Dec 2023
Awful service. They canceled our transport 5hrs ahead of arriving at the airport. No recommendation for another transport, nothing. We were left stranded,
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Dear Customer, Unfortunately, we did not cancel your trip, viator reported a problem with the issuer of the payment, and viator took care of canceling your reservation automatically. Our service remained confirmed until then, however it was not within our control. Best regards
Great Great Great

Franklin_H, Oct 2023
Was at airport on time and had to wait because it took me a while to get to the driver because of long lines. He communicated WhatsApp and help me find him when I was coming outside. He give me several tips about places to go and what to do and also warned me of places and times that I might not want to go. Definitely won’t want him again. Thanks
