“Bajonazos” or carjackings occur more in the province of San Jose, especially in the cantons of Desamparados, Tibás, Moravia and Guadalupe. However, they can occur anywhere in the country.

In the event of being carjacked, authorities in Costa Rica recommended victims not to resist and and as follows: stay calm and follow the demands of the thieves to safeguard your life and that of his companions.

If possible, take a mental note of the description of the assailant(s), any special characteristic, ie accent, type of clothing and anything that could police identify the.

The Organismo de Investigacion Judicial (OIJ) say the hours with most incidents are between 7:30 pm to 11:30 pm, but be alert at all times.

Never think that the type of car you may drive is not a target of thieves, police say that each vehicle represents something different to the thieves.

Usually, theft of newer vehicles is to “twin” – use the registration of a similar vehicle to register the stolen vehicle, while older cars are usually for chop shops, taking them apart to sell the used parts.

Thieves could be out looking for  a special type of car, this is identified as “theft on demand”.

In any event, it is always best to be aware of your surroundings when leaving the driveway, being followed to the office or home. Many reports indicate thieves following a vehicle for periods of time and strike at the moment when entering your garage at home.
