We are located: 50 mts oeste de la entrada principal del Hospital Nuevo de Alajuela, diagonal a la parada de taxis, Casa Esquinera.(50 mts west from the main entrance of the NEW hospital of Alajuela, house is on the corner)

NEVER believe taxi drivers! They make fake phone calls (have people on the phone pretending they work for us! IT IS A BIG LIE) they will always try to take you somewhere else and say that we are full or close.
Also if you are in San Jose and the taxi drivers tell you that the routes are close or there is a manifestation! it is a lie too!

If you are coming from the pacific coast or Central America, ALL BUSES stop at the airport. So DON'T go all the way t o San Jos� down town, get off at the Airport.
