Taxi's from airport

Hi! My husband and I will be traveling to CR on June 8. We're flying into Liberia and are staying at the Occidental Grand. My question is will there be taxi's readily available at the airport for us once we get there? Also, how much would a typical cab fare cost for two to get to the Occidental? Thanks, and any insight into this will be very helpful! This is our first trip to CR!

Would that be the cost per person or the total for both us? Thanks so much for your reply!

Yes, red taxis with yellow triangles on the door. Some airport taxis are orange, and clearly marked as so. The previous post is warning you not to use an unlicensed "personal car" type taxi, as some entrepreneurs skulk around restaurants and bars trying to make a few dollars. At the airport and the resort, you won't encounter them. Off the resort, and/or in town, just be aware.

I think the taxi and car rental people in Liberia seem a little overwhelming (compared to SJO). So just step back if you're not sure, see what other people are doing and take your time.

The hotel doesn't have anyone they make arrangements with?

Gary, the company we used to book our vacation through has a company they use for pick up at the airport, but they wanted to charge us $80 one way. I thought it was a little expensive. We'll be cautious with finding a taxi at LIR. I definitely don't want to get ripped off!
