Always be prepared . we hailed a cab around coca cola last night . We said hotel bolivar,proximo bolivar zoo.Instead of taking us there he started taking usin the oppisite direction out of town towards the west. Alto alto.stop stop .Take us to coca cola . He tried to get paid called the cops eventually backed down . Hate to think of the possible outcome .Held to ransom demanding payment in an area we did not know . Make sure the cab driver understands some english .Use Costa Rican directions .Ie Calle nueve y once avenida sies.Norte de parque morazon. Just got on the bus and came back home to cuidad colon . Had dinner there the waiter said bad cab experiences are common.
always do your home work.Have the address written down. If you feel something is wrong Get out of the cab.
