Assistance with Passing RETEVE VEHICLE INSPECTION in Costa Rica


Passing the RETEVE VEHICLE INSPECTION (the MANDATORY Vehicle Inspection NEEDED before registering &/or renewing your car in Costa Rica) can be a BIG PAIN on numerous levels - even more so if you do not habla Español•do not speak Spanish!!

I found a REALLY GOOD English-speaking mechanic that's TRUST WORTHY & GETS the level of North American Customer Service we're often seeking!!

Renee has been my friend Brenda's mechanic for AGES - young as he obviously is in the picture above, Renee started dabbling on cars when he was a little boy!  Still young (but now in his late-20's), working on cars is his PASSION.

AND, he can even help you with the whole Reteve Inspection process!!  I think hiring someone to do this is a VERY WISE INVESTMENT in your sanity, time & wallet because MANY people have reported feeling that "There's a Rich Gringo" sign on their forehead - plus it can get complicated - especially if there is/are things wrong with the vehicle & do you REALLY want to go through all that just to save you $40???


THE PROCESS:
•  You can bring your vehicle to him in Guachipelin (de Escazu).  OR - for a fee (based on your location), he can come pick it up from you.

•  First he'll take your vehicle back to the shop he works for:
Servicio AutoMotrez RSO
& run a diagnostic on it to better insure your vehicle passing Reteve Inspection. 
IF anything needs to be done, with your advance permission he'll fix it.

•  Then he'll take your car to an OFFICIAL Authorized Reteve Inspection shop & once you're approved, he'll bring it back to his shop for you to pick it up or return it to you.

PRICE:
His Time  -  10,000-colones (less than $20 [tips are welcome])
Official Reteve Inspection Fee  -  10,000-c
Repairs  -  Varies by what's needed.
Transporation to/from his shop  -  varies by location•distance.  Inquire.

Don't live in Escazu but want someone that speaks good English & is trustworthy & have not found that person where you live?  Renee's even willing to travel to you wherever you are if you REALLY need him - for the right FAIR price for his time & gas!

Taxi Drivers in Costa Rica Willing to TRANSPORT PETS

 
 
Finding taxi drivers willing to transport pets is not easy to do in Costa Rica. 

Why?  There are a few factors:
•   Some people are allergic to pet hair so it's not real fair for them to have to go through that (BEING CONSIDERATE SOLUTION:  If they're the type that leaves hair behind, PLEASE wrap your pet up in a towel or put them in a big bag or carrier).

•   Some pets will pee in a strange•scary environment (same "BEING CONSIDERATE SOLUTION" as above).

•   I've noticed that some Tico's are afraid of dogs especially.  Why is that?  Many have shared with me that they were at some point bit - especially by dogs (especially when they were young) - so that's a legitimate fear.  (see the "BEING CONSIDERATE SOLUTIONS" above but also, do you have a muzzle you can put on??).

So I'm slowly creating a list of taxi drivers (both legal insured red taxi's & pirata•Pirate taxis since this list is limited).
ESCAZU

VICTOR  -  8-951-7946
TYPE:  legal red taxi - Taxi's Escazu
SIZE:  Ok with All sizes
LANGUAGE:  ONLY Spanish but he's VERY helpful
HOURS:  Daily 8am-10pm
LIVES:  Escazu (San Antonio)
(tell him Vicki Connected you!)


DISPATCH for TAXI'S ESCAZU
2-289-0826  •  2-289-0026
1/2 the people in the office do not speak English so but Roberto & Alejandra do so ask if they're working & tell them you NEED a taxi to transport a ____.

ZIP CODES • Código Postal in Costa Rica


Yes Virginia - Costa Rica actually DOES have
"ZIP CODES"
in Costa Rica!!!  REALLY!!!
Did you know that??

Well, actually the word for them is 
Codigo Postals 
as they're called here in Costa Rica

YEAHHH!!! 
Costa Rica is FINALLY coming into the 21st Century (though last I checked with Banco Nacional, they STILL didn't have  them in their system yet - making it hard to order something online that requires a zip code for verification of your card!!  On that note, UNTIL the banks get with it, you will most likely STILL have problems ordering online)!

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

SO WHAT IS IT??
It's a 5 digit code and how it works is:
The 1st digit corresponds to the Province/State. 
T
he 2nd  2 digits corresponds to the Canton/City and the
Last 2
digits are the District (like San Rafael, Centro, San Antonio, etc.).

So Escazu (San Rafael) is
10203

1 = San Jose (the "Province"•State)
02 = Escazu (the "Canton"•City)
03 = San Rafael (the "District"•Neighborhood)

 
SO WHAT IS YOUR ZIP CODE • CODIGO POSTAL?
check out

Here's another site that might be faster for you.  It breaks down by Latitude and Longitude:
CodigoPostalCostaRica.com

Vivir en paz desactivando el dolor físico y emocional - Escazu - 13 de SEPTIEMBRE 2014 con Monique Chabot

 
 Fibromialgia en Costa Rica, Sí se puede/Yes you can/Oui, vous pouvez
facebook.com/GrupoFibromialgiaSiSePuedeCostaRica


Después de ofrecer la charla "Bendiciones de la fibromialgia" en el marco de la Feria Internacional del Libro adónde presenté el libro en francés "Cómo he domesticado la fibromialgia" la demanda para aprender más de este si hizo por varias personas. Les invito empezar la transformación hacía una mejor calidad de vida participando a la capacitación presente:
Vivir en paz desactivando el dolor físico y emocional

facebook.com/events/1498804150358645

El dolor nos roba la paz interior…El dolor que se calla es más doloroso”. Racine --- “El dolor, cuando no se convierte en verdugo, es un gran maestro.” Concepción Arenal
ero, ¿cómo hacerlo a diario?

Si queremos crear un cambio significativo en el mundo, hay que empezar por mejorar nuestro proprio mundo interior. Si deseamos obtener un resultado diferente hay que cambiar algo para lograrlo. No podemos continuar hacer lo mismo y esperar que nuestra vida se mejore.

Durante el taller "Paz Interior desactivando el dolor físico y emocional" exploraremos este tema empezando por mirar hacía el interior, tratar de ver lo que se esconde detrás de nuestras insatisfacciones y aprendiendo los aspectos que definen nuestra percepción y/o distorción de la misma.

CUANDO: 
13 de setiembre  -  1-4pm
Dónde: Restaurante CASSEROLES en Escazú

INCLUYE:
Almuerzo y material didáctico
