Uber says the most moving areas are San Pedro, Guadalupe, Alajuelita, Escazu and La Sabana, with Los Yoses the area where the most trips originated.

The most remote destinations for Uber drivers from the metropolitan area of San Jose include Peñas Blancas (border with Nicaragua), Tamarindo, Nosara and Quepos.

Uber arrived in Costa Rica last August, creating unrest among transport officials and taxi operators (both formal and informal).

Protests against Uber included manifestations in the streets of the country.

Despite all this, Uber continues to operate, users using their smartphones to connect with drivers to ger a ride close to them to travel to the destination of their choice.
