I wasted a lot of time looking for a car and trying to learn about the paperwork process needed to buy one. I finally found fijatevos.com through my search and saw the service offered by them. Kattia picked me up from my hotel on time and took me to several private dealerships around town. She had done her homework by researching the truck I wanted and knew the asking price beforehand. On the lots, she inspected each vehicle I was interested in carefully. When I found the car I liked, Kattia negotiated a better deal for me, made sure the papers with the lawyer were right, and even helped me get back to my hotel by letting me follow her in my purchased vehicle. I highly recommend this service for anyone purchasing a car in Costa Rica. It will save you time, money, and frustration.
My husband and I can’t recommend Russell and Kattia highly enough. We emailed them before coming to Costa Rica exactly what we were looking for in a vehicle, how much we wanted to pay, etc. Kattia picked us up at our hotel when we arrived and took us to see what was available according to our specific criteria. We were able to buy the car that day and get the paper work done with the lawyer. This is no small thing in Costa Rica and having a “Tica” escort us and communicate with the sellers, lawyer, dealer, etc. was invaluable. This saved us having to hire a taxi to take us around San Jose to look at cars and trying to communicate with people with my fair but not good Spanish.
Also Russell and Kattia only work with reputable individuals and dealers so there are no concerns regarding getting “ripped off” by unscrupulous people. We were referred to the website by several friends of ours that had gotten their cars through Russell and Kattia. If you are looking for a car in Costa Rica, they are the ones to call.
