HI, my husband and 2 girls are leaving for San Jose next week. We were told yesterday that we need to be prepared to pay a lot of bribes to drive the highway and that we needed to have a hdden wallet with our cash in it and then a second wallet for when we are stopped and need to pay bribes. I haven't read anything of the sort like that on these forums, but this person who told us this said the safety has drastically changed in the last 3 months. We fly into San Jose and then we are renting a car (I'm going with Mex Rent a Car, I'll be sure to leave review) and driving to Los Barilles for 5 days, then driving back to San Jose for 2 days. Can anyone speak directly to the need for a second wallet and the bribes that we may encounter on the highyway?
