This sudden work trip for a month to San Jose will be my first international trip, and I will be solo. I will have a stipend for taxi rides, but my husband (Colombian) is nervous about piratas and people messing with the Maria (the meter). He is worried about me being alone since I'm "Incredibly American" and my travelling Spanish has a very American accent.
Be honest, please. How likely is it for "someone like me" to be safe? In comparison to the very large city in Colombia where my husband is from?
