We flew in and out of SJO within the past two weeks, and didn't have anything I would call being "harassed" at all (not like when we've gone to Mexico for instance). Coming out of the airport, you see gobs of drivers (taxi, shuttle) and some have signs with your name on them. Look carefully. We had a reservation with Interbus and I never did see anyone standing with our names on a placard, but after some initial confusion we did finally connect to the person who was there to pick us up & my name was on his wipeboard. If you don't have a plan for how to get from the airport to your first hotel then you might feel overwhelmed since there are many trying to get your attention.

Orange taxis are the official ones in the airport area, so if all else fails you can get a ride on those. If I were you, I'd contact your hotel to find out what the fare should cost from the airport so that you have a good idea of what it will be ahead of time.

There was a man who ended up helping us out, and some people might consider him a hustler, but all he did was ask us if we needed anything and I said I was looking for Interbus and he pointed and told me which way to go. When I couldn't find it, I came across him again and said I couldn't find Interbus and he found one for me (they are white shuttle vans & not all of them say Interbus on the side). It ended up not being the right one, but it all got worked out since the official Interbus person who had my name on his board came and found me, and he moved people from another shuttle onto the one that we'd already boarded. We ended up giving the stranger who helped us out a dollar or two and he was happy.
