In March of 2016 we took the ride with Ride Costa Rica from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio (booked through AnywhereCostaRica). We thought it was going to be an uneventful shuttle ride, but it turned out to anything but,

Our driver, Minor, seems to take his job seriously. He even has a large laminated Costa Rica map which he rolled into a tube in the van. This he used to give us a presentation of Costa Rica's geography and our route. He made frequent stops to show us the scenery and interesting natural phenomena -- we had views of the mountains of both sides of the Continental Divide, some flowering trees and a cashew nut tree with fruits. Then we made a long stop at Rio Tarcoles where we walked across the bridge to see the many huge crocodiles in the river. Minor even has a scope for riders to view the crocs, so he is more like a guide and driver.

Needless to say, the ride took a little longer but we did not mind at all, it was made all the more interesting with these stops and presentations.

Our photo tour used RideCR for 11 days. Our driver Hugo was amazing. He navigated our bus safely from the Airport, throughout the countryside, to each of our 3 hotels, and back to the Airport. What made the 11 day adventure even better, was that Hugo had a keen eye for spotting birds and wildlife that we included in our photo tour. Because of Hugo, we have photos of birds and wildlife that we would not have had without him. He was incredibly helpful answering questions, offering information, and assisting us any way he could. The bus was clean, well maintained and comfortable. I would definitely recommend RideCR, and especially Hugo, for any travel in Costa Rica.

We used this service several times while in the country. Drivers were on time, the vehicles were clean and in good condition. Drivers had a good command of English, which helped as our Spanish is a little weak. They took the time to explain how long our trip would be, when we would stop for a break, and answered our questions about the surroundings. Nice people, will use them again.

We had beautiful service with the Ride CR services. I had pre-arranged transport with them from Manuel Antonio area to San Jose. Other than the crazy driving we learned is common in Costa Rica we found the drivers to be professional and friendly and answering any silly question we asked. When we wanted to stop to see the crodile bridge - there was no hesitancy and no hurrying us along our way when we dawdled. A very pleasant drive in beautiful country.

RideCR provided me with an efficient comfortable shuttle bus service from San Jose to La Fortuna. As with the Interbus shuttle bus service, pick up and arrival was on time. I found shuttle buses with these two companies an effective way to get from one location to another and would recommend it as a transportation service.
