How this daily service works?

Medium size shared buses leaving every day from our list of destinations around Costa Rica, specially on the pacific coast and San Jose. Normally we do only one departure in the morning per day, but some destinations requires 2 departures per day, we made it that way in order to offer a better service to our clients. Destinations like Liberia Airport, Tamarindo and Sámara are some of them.

The bus picks everyone at the departing time from their locations, taking them to their desired destination. Costa Rica looks like a small country, but getting from one place to another can be complicated because our roads system, weather and traffic. That’s why daily shuttles take normally more than 2 hours on the shortest distances and up to 5 hours on the long ones. Take that in mind when you are estimating arrival times at you hotels or if you are planning to catch a plane.

Our recommendation

Before you arrange a daily shuttle think about all the advantages you will get with it, if you’re thinking that 4 hours is too much time to get to your destination, just imagine how long that trip is going to take by public bus, with all the stops and line waiting. Also, take in mind that bus terminals are normally located on centric places and your final destination is probably far from there, which means, in some cases you will end up taking a taxi and paying even more than a daily shuttle ticket.

With that been said, now you have a quick idea of how it works. It’s not an easy job, but we happily work hard to provide the best service to our clients.
