    Very reliable. Very helpful drivers
    We used CR taxis on a number of long trips between hotels around Costa Rica which were booked for us in advance from the UK. All very helpful and friendly drivers who always arrived early to pick us up. Modern taxis. Very reliable service. Would definitely recommend. Made our transfers very easy.

    Travel with RideCR
    Recently had a great trip to Cost-Rica and engaged RideCR for transportation from San Jose to La Fortuna then to Manuel Antonio and back to San Jose. We had a great experience with RideCR team right from online support to the drivers. First of all great online support by Joshua and Eida for making our trip memorable. They were available online all the time and answered all our questions and always provided support. Thanks to both. We also had great drivers Vinicio, Luis and Ronny. Safe, Enjoyable. Highly Recommended.

    Great driver on DriveCR. Thanks Mario R
    I just wanted to give 2 thumbs up to our driver who took us from Arenal to Tamarindo. He drove myself and 2 teenage sons. He noticed my camera and large wildlife lens, and from there on out, he stopped at all the wildlife spots and viewpoints for me to shoot. The highlights were the large group of couti and a wild pair of Scarlet Macaws. Thank you, Mario R

    Excellent private transportation from SJO to La Fortuna
    Used Ride CR for a private transfer from SJO to Arenal. The vehicle was clean and comfortable with AC and Wi-Fi and our driver Charlie was very friendly and went out of his way to ensure we were well taken care of. He was also very knowledgeable and provided us first time visitors some excellent information. Would highly recommend.

    Smooth shuttle experience
    We had a great experience with Ride CR and our driver, Carlos. We booked a shared shuttle from Monteverde to Tamarindo. Carlos arrived on time for our pick-up, was friendly, and professional. The minibus was clean and obviously well taken care of. Wifi and outlets were available. After dropping off two other travelers in Liberia and after a snack & bathroom break we continued on to Tamarindo (just the two of us plus Carlos) so essentially a private transfer for half of the drive. We made it to our destination much quicker than anticipated.

    Great service and fresh car
    Perfect, everything you could expect, Carlos Corrales made our trip as enjoyable as it can be after a long flight, great vehicle and very comfortable. Can strongly recommend if you want conviene and /or are in a bit of a hurry. For us landing and getting outside the airport around 4:30pm still could make the trip and have more time at the La Fortuna where we went

    Would definitely use them again!
    First off - if you use any shuttle service for a long ride through the curvy roads of Costa Rica you may want to take some Bromine or Dramamine for motion sickness. We didn’t have a problem but definitely felt it a bit during our first ride. No fault of the driver, just the roads. We used RideCR three times during our recent trip to Costa Rica (Liberia Airport to La Fortuna, La Fortuna to Tamarindo and Tamarindo back to Liberia Airport). Each pickup was on time or a couple of minutes early, the drivers were personable and spoke a functional level of English. On the longer trips (3hr+) they offered to stop at a shopping area/restaurant/bathroom at about the halfway point. For the shared shuttle this added about 20-min to our trip but we weren’t in any hurry so no complaints here. I don’t know if they would do that for those going to the airport. Air conditioning worked on both private shuttles and the shared shuttle. The first private shuttle was a white shuttle van, the second was a Toyota SUV of some type. The shared shuttle looked a bit like a smaller bus. I contacted the RudeCR main number via WhatsApp the day before each trip to make sure everything was good to go, the usually responded within about 15 minutes. Overall it was a great experience and I’d use them again.

    Great driver, very comfortable van
    Johnny was our driver from the Parador Hotel to San Jose airport. He is an excellent driver, and we felt very safe, even when he was passing cars on narrow rodes. When we got within four miles of the airport, traffic was completely backed up due to people going to the festival celebration. Johnny turned onto a side street and got us to the airport by a different route just when we wanted to arrive there. The van was very comfortable for the six of us. As we requested, along the way, he stopped at the crococile bridge so we could see the crocodiles there. I highly recommend RideCR.

    More than a transfer.
    We had a transfer from San Jose to Manuel Antonio. The service was excellent. The driver/ guide was very knowledgeable in Costa Rica culture & wildlife. He was very proud of his heritage. He was great company and very funny. I highly recommend this company.

Christan was the best private driver from LA Fortuna to San Jose! Christian was professional, and he made sure to make our ride enjoyable all the way through. If I ever came back to Costa rica I would be so lucky to have him drive us around again. I highly recommend one chooses to use Christan in the future.

Christian was the BEST tour guide! He made our trip outstanding by stopping to let us see sloths, showing us a beautiful waterfall, and taking us to an amazing local restaurant. We got way more than we paid for and were very happy for the safe, generous, and friendly ride! Thank you so much!

Our driver, Hugo was WONDERFUL! He was skillful, careful and an overall excellent driver!! We stopped for souvenirs and coffee. Then a second to to see the r crocodiles! At each stop he opted out doors, escorted us to the bathroom or shops and was extremely kind! The van was air conditioned, clean and very comfortable! I would highly recommend Hugo and his company!!

We had Hugo as our driver, from the airport in Liberia to La Fortuna, and he was excellent -- friendly, knowledgeable and safe. He answered all our questions about the area, and even gave us a rudimentary education about the Spanish language. We stopped along the way at Cafe Macadamia, which was also great. In short, Hugo was a terrific driver, and a terrific guy.

Our driver Daniel Quiros was amazing! He made sure that we were comfortable the entire ride and made stops for us to use the bathroom. He also let us stop to take pictures at scenic places. There was also his wifi network that he let us connect to. He made our 4 hour drive go by so quickly! The van was clean, comfortable, and air conditioned.
