    Carlos Corralles is the best!
    It was a very relaxing ride. Carlos really knew great picture points and an amazing rest stop in between la fortuna and Guancaste. He played an Amazon mix of music throughout the trip (4hours) and gave us time to stretch our legs. Every time we went over some unpacked roads I immediately thought “I am so happy I got a driver for this!” Because these roads can be treacherous but it’s like he knew EXACTLY where every bump would be and avoided it while saying “free massage” lol great trip and overall great driver!

    Costa Rica trip with RideCR
    We had a great experience using Ride CR to go all over Costa Rica. Hugo Lopez who drove us from Manuel Antonio to San Jose airport was excellent. The car was clean and comfortable. He was very caring and shared good information. He took care when kids had to take a toilet stop. Due to accident the main highway was closed. But he took a quick detour and got us to airport on time. Overall great experience

    Carlos Corrales, best driver
    We took the private transportation for a group of 4 from Tamarindo to St. Jose and Carlos was our driver. The car was very clean, comfortable and at the right temperature. Carlos was friendly and stopped as requested. He showed us the animals at the stop and tried to answer all our questions. He prepared water in the car. It's a great experience. I recommend it.

    Great ride from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio
    Carlos Corrales was an excellent driver for our family. On our way from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio, he took us to a great place for lunch as well as stopped of at the crocodile bridge. We felt very safe and enjoyed the ride in his air conditioned van. Highly recommended!

    Very Reliable and Friendly Private Transfer Service
    Used the services of this company five times while staying in the Arenal/La Fortuna area. Once for private transfer from La Fortuna airport to the resort we we staying at, and then twice for getting to/returning from birding and night hike tours. Same very friendly driver each time and minibus was clean and pretty new. Always very punctual and would recommend them.

    Great ride with RideCR
    Carlos is a great conversationalist and a wonderful driver. He drove us from Monteverde to Playa Hermoso. That's a 3-hour drive with lots of potholes add windy roads. And that's why you need a great driver. Carlos arrived a half hour early. Impressive. Carlos drove us in a very clean Toyota van which appeared to be in great condition, whis is important because of those roads described above. Carlos was well dressed and looked like he just got out of the shower. 😁 He also had cold water ready for us. We spoke English and Spanish to each other so I could practice my Spanish and he could practice his English. He showed us different sites on the way, stopped so we could take a photo, took us to a nice little restaurant and to a grocery store before we arrived at our hotel. We would definitely use RideCR and ask for Carlos to be our driver next time we're in Costa Rica.

    Awesome transpiration service
    Carlos was an amazing driver. Came to pick us up promptly, was extremely polite, and made sure to stop on the way to give us a break and stretch. He was an all around pleasure and I would highly recommend this transpiration service. Muchas gracias, Carlos. Hasta luego! Nos vemos prontos

We had the pleasure of driving with Daniel Quiroz after a long traveling day. He made the long drive so much fun. He was attentive, informative, patient, and incredibly kind to my whole family. We learned so much about Costa Rica, its people, and environment in our short 3 hour trip. ¡¡Gracias Daniel!! Pura vida!!

We had a great ride and drive from Anthony on the way from La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio. The car was spacious and comfortable. Anthony took us to a local place he knew had a sloth sleeping outside the shop as well as stopped at the popular Crocodile Bridge. He was a good driver, friendly and helpful.

I chose RideCR because of the many good reviews on tripadvisor - and it was a good choice, for sure.

When making our travel plans to CR, we were looking for a reliable and affordable transport and reached out to to RideCR by mail - a couple of hours later, not only did we get a detailed offer, but also the suggestion to stay the night in San José and start the next morning instead of trying to get the ferry at Puntarenas (our plane’s arrival at SJO was scheduled for 8pm, so it would be almost certain not to make it to the last ferry in time).

Our driver Luís showed up on point, had our transport perfectly air-conditioned and provided a perfect mix of music throughout our journey to the ferry. As traffic was rather dense that time of the day, he used an alternative route and arrived at the ferry 30 minutes before its departure. After buying us the ferry tickets, he waited until we had safely boarded the ship before driving off.

After a 1,5h hour ride, at the port in Paquera we were greeted by another RideCR driver holding a sign with my name on it, who took care of our laguagge and led us to a spacious Nissan 4WD. After 45 minutes, he safely dropped us off at our hotel in Tambór - ride was smooth as a glove.

If you should ever need a reliable transport partner in CR, RideCR should be on top of your list!
