"Thefts while loading luggage into taxi," Mugging & Robbery Tip by emillen9

Mugging & Robbery, San Josť: 10 reviews and 1 photos

The San Jose Airport Taxi's are prone to theft from luggage. There are always several people helping with your luggage. If you do not watch closely they will pilfer your bags and carry-ons while putting them in the trunik. Be sure to watch until the trunk is closed. I did not and lost an $800 camcorder. My tickets, passports, $4000 trav cks and $2000 cash were in a pouch and I am surprised they did not rip that off also. I guess they felt sorry for such a dumb gringo. LOL
In Brazil theft and crime take the place of welfare. The gov looks the other way and does not have to feed the crooks. I hope this never happens in Beautiful Costa Rica.
