Shared Shuttle Transport San Jose to Monteverde

Costa Rica Shared Transport San Jose-Monteverde

Shared Shuttle San Jose Transport to Monteverde (and vice versa). Reliable, safe, and comfortable shared transportation. Shared shuttle transport in Costa Rica is a good alternative if you cannot afford private transport and do not want to go on the hot and sometimes unsafe public buses.

This is a door-to-door service from your hotel in downtown San Jose. The shuttle also passes the airport and some shuttles can pick up and drop off directly at the airport itself. Not all hotels near the airport are in the pick-up zone but you can meet at Denny’s Restaurant.  Denny's is very easy to get to, just a two-minute taxi ride from the airport, opposite the Holiday Inn Express (all the taxis know it). 

The journey time is approx four hours. There is a stop along the way to get a snack, stretch your legs and use the service facilities.
