Transportation Arenal Costa Rica. There are various transport options in Costa Rica: how you travel place by place often depends on time, cost and convenience. We can arrange any private and shared shuttle transport to most parts of the country.
The most comfortable, convenient and fastest way to travel by road is by private transportation. We can arrange micobuses (vans) and coasters to safely tranfer you to most destinations in Costa Rica. Our drivers use comfortable microbuses which have A/C and seat belts. Some have WIFi! Vehicles are fully insured and drivers always carry cell phones. The prices are usually based on 1-6 people (Coasters up to 22 passengers), with operating hours between 6.00am-7.00pm. Outside of these hours there is a small extra charge. Private transports can be arranged from airports in Costa Rica: our drivers wait for you at the main exits of the airport and have a sign with your name on it.

Shared Shuttles (often called collective transports) are a great alternative to rental cars and public buses and a cheaper option than private transfers. We can arrange shuttle services to many destinations in Costa Rica, which run once or twice daily and are hotel-to-hotel. The shuttles are comfortable, modern micro-buses with a/c and seat belts. The drivers are equipped with cell phones and are fully insured. The shuttles usually take up to 8 people. Shuttles in general cannot pick up from the airports but they do pick-up from certain hotels very near the airport. BOOK A SHUTTLE NOW! CLICK HERE
TAXI-BOAT-TAXI (SOMETIMES CALLED JEEP-BOAT-JEEP)

Throughout Costa Rica there is an extensive public bus system. The problem is that most of the routes are privately rather than collectively or govenrment owned, so getting hold of a schedule is often difficult and finding updated ones is often a time consuming and frustrating job. The buses are often hot, late, cancelled, crowded and extremely slow. But they are very cheap - there is no doubt about that and if you are a traveler with a lot of time on your hands this is the way to go!
