Costa Rica Shuttle Transport San Jose to Arenal and Vice Versa

Shared Shuttle Transportation San Jose to La Fortuna, and Arenal Volcano & Vice Versa

Costa Rica Shared Transport San Jose to Arenal and Vice Versa. Comfortable, safe and modern shared transportation. This type of shared transport 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 shared shuttle also passes near the airport. Although it cannot pick up directly from the airport it can pick up from some airport hotels (not all) and also from Denny’s Restaurant.  Denny's is very easy to get to, just two minutes taxi ride from the airport, opposite the Holiday Inn Express  - all the taxis know it). Note: on the return journey the shuttle can drop directly at the airport and if you are staying at an airport hotel, you can get off the shuttle at the airport and take a taxi to your hotel. It also drops at downtown hotels.

Journey time is approx 4 hours. There is a stop along the way to get a snack, stretch your legs and use the service facilities.
