Guide to Costa Rica: Taxis

Drivers are supposed to use computerised meters, called “marias” in the San José metropolitan area, for trips of 12 kilometers or less.

As soon as you get in the cab, they should press a button and meter should say ø210 for the 1st km. Ask at your hotel how much should they charge you and ask the driver how much he is going to charge you beforehand.

After 10:00pm there is a 20% increase.
