(QCOSTARICA) 11:37am – Travel on the Ruta 27 between La Sabana and Escazú is completely blocked. Other routes like the autopista General Cañas (San Jose – Airport) are not any better, the same with the Florencio del Castillo (San José – Cartago).

This all due to the protest by taxi drivers that began this morning in La Sabana.

The most affected area is in Guachipelin, Escazú, in the area around the offices of the Autoridad Reguladora de Servicios Publicos (ARESEP), as taxi drivers demand the regulatory agency to amend the way it sets taxi fares.
