"Two tiered pricing system" Prices & Tipping Tip by Suzanne123

Prices & Tipping, Jacó: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Get to know what the locals pay because there are different rates that taxis like to charge for service. I had one taxi charge 1 million colones for a 10 minute taxi ride to playa hermosa and another one charged 1,000. A difference of $10. If you are charged in American prices, then negotiate hard. In the stores you can bargain down 10% easily. Ask if service is included in the prices at restaurants if it is not stated on the menu. This is not typical for locals, only at places frequented by tourists.
