Public Buses

Throughout Costa Rica there is an extensive public bus system. The problem is that most of the routes are privately rather than individually 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!


Shuttles (or collective transports as they are sometimes called) are a great alternative to rental cars, public buses or private transfers. We can arrange shuttle services to many destinations in Costa Rica, which run once or twice daily and are door-to-door to many destinations. 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.

Private Transfers

For a more convenient and faster journey, we can arrange completely private, door to door transport to most destinations. Our drivers use comfortable microbuses or 4 x 4 vehicles which have A/C and seat belts. Vehicles are fully insured and carry cell phones. The prices are usually based on 1-8 people, with operating hours between 6.00am-6.00pm. Outside of these hours, there is a small extra charge.
