Users can now get an Uber outside the Central Valley, where ride app has more than 25,000 drivers serving over 700,000 users.

In a notice to users on April 15, the app offers a 15% discount of up to ¢1,500 colones on each trip for trips in the Pacific coastal areas during Semana Santa, using the codes:

  • SEMANAPUERTO for trips in Puntarenas (Manuel Antonio/Queposand Jaco) and
