Anyone have experience with Uber in Costa Rica? Especially around San Jose?

I took an uber in San Jose, only once but it was a great experience. They found my hotel in a remote area and knew exactly where to go.. cheap too

They are ok in CR, the lack of real addresses in CR are a problem if your destination is someone's house though.

The addresses in CR are all by reference. I was there on a project for a year, and it's just like what Associate 1 explained: 200 meters east from the church, 300 meters north from the post office, next to the yellow house. Some even add that you should ask about your destination at the corner bakery.

Oh and be ready for terrible traffic jams in the San Jose area. It would take up to an hour to drive the 4 km from my hotel to my client site at 8 am, so we got into a habit of leaving the hotel by 6:45 am.

Never used it in Costa Rica, but it's great in Panama, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. I would assume Costa Rica is similar.

Works with no issues ...they also speak reasonably English

How does CR not have real addresses....

What ever you do don't take a taxi in SJ. They will gouge and scam the shit out of you.

@D1 it'd be like "that old house next to the post office"...but that post office burned down 30 years ago and your just supposed to know that's what it means.

Thanks for all the shared thoughts - this will be very helpful!

It's perfect. Way better than taking a cab. Now be warned though, when we went to CR we asked a driver if they were our uber driver and he said he was. Then once we got to our destination he said he wasn't a part of uber but a black cab. Dude was kinda scary so we paid for it. Just double check it's your driver.

Get a rental car that's what I did when I was in CR

Saw an article recently how companies are investing in surveillance tools to evaluate the "productivity" of their employees since many transitioned to remote work. There are trackers out there that would screenshot your current desktop view at intervals, how long you've been typing/clicking, etc... it feels incredibly invasive. I think this needs to be listed very clearly in the employee handbook. Has your company been transparent with you about how they are tracking you?
