    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.

Juan Luis was so kind and knowledgable to tell us about CR on our drive being our first time in country. We stopped for a picture overlooking a beautiful valley and a small roadside stand for snacks.

We are enjoying Ride CR during our visit to Costa Rica. Daniel Quiros drove us from a pick up spot for Mowamba Lodge to La Fortuna as a private transport. His English is great but we were able to use google translate to have longer conversations with him and learn more about him and La Fortuna before our arrival. The car was clean and well air conditioned. We were able to send messages home using the car’s WiFi which was a great bonus. The trip went by quickly because we had so much fun with Daniel.

We also used Ride CR for our private transfer from Puerto Viejo. Our driver then was also kind and helpful but I forgot to write down his name. We are very impressed with Ride CR and its drivers!

Driver Fauricio was a warm, congenial and relaxing driver who was careful on the roads and made the 5+ hour long trip from Tamarindo to Manuel Antonio pass very quickly. His command of English was excellent.

We had a great trip from La fortuna to uvita. Hugo was a fantastic driver, did not feel like it was a long drive at all. He made some great little stops to see butterflies and the crocodile bridge. We were happy to see he was also our driver for our next trip as well!
Thanks Hugo!

Deiner was an excellent driver. He took us to get lunch before going on the hour and a half drive to our hotel. He was very patient and kind. Also, speaks good English so we were able to communicate. I would definitely recommend booking with Deiner.
