taxi from Liberia airport to downtown Liberia hotel

We will be flying into Liberia next week. We'll need transportation to our downtown hotel. Is it safe to just take any taxi that's waiting at the airport? Does anyone know if there's a standard rate? We'll have two people, two bags.

Official, licensed taxis will be waiting at the airport. Look for red taxi with a yellow triangle on the door. Be sure to ask them to use the meter. ("maria") Sadly, I have been overcharged using one of those taxis at the airport so best if they use the meter. You can also negotiate a price - it should not be more than $25. (It's about 1/2 an hour or so from the airport to the center of Liberia.)

An alternative is the public bus which runs regularly between Liberia and the airport. Once at the bus station, you can get a taxi to your hotel.

Would we need exact change for the bus? Is there a fixed rate? Are dollars okay?

Sorry so many questions; I appreciate your help!

For the bus - there is a fixed rate, you will need to pay the driver in colones. If you don't have exact change, he will give you change for whatever you have. You can get colones from an ATM before you leave the airport terminal.
