Clean and comfortable vehicles. I had Left a bag on the bus and once I had noticed they responded quickly and brought it to my hotel for me…going that extra mile.
Got us to our destination early
The shuttle was on time and got us to our destination early. We didn’t realize the shuttle involved in a stop for breakfast, which would have been nice to know in advance. The driver said it would be a 20 minute stop, but in reality, it was actually about 35 minutes. I was nervous we would be late to our destination, but we were not. Friendly drivers (we changed shuttles about halfway through) and they were careful with our luggage. I would use them again.
Reliable and on time!
Easy to use online booking system, would recommend this shuttle service getting around CR..beware the roads can be a bit rough.
Tropical Tours for Transportation
I used tropical tours twice. I took a private shuttle with my girlfriend from Liberia airport to Playa Carmen (typically about 5 hours). Since it was the two of us, the driver offered to take us on a shortcut. We managed to get to Playa Carmen in 4 hours which was fantastic. The route was scenic (and quite bumpy at parts) but our driver was nice, pointed out some cool things along the way, and was willing to stop whenever we needed a break… Read more
Shuttling around Costa Rica
We took this shuttle first from our B&B in Playa Longosta to Casa Chameleon Mal Pais. They picked us up at our door and dropped us off at our next door. We took this same shuttle service from Mal Pais to Las Catalinas. Again the drivers picked us up right at our hotel and took us directly to our next hotel, even though they originally said they could not. Our driver was AMAZING and took us the whole way to Casa Chameleon Las Catalinas!!! THANK YOU. Shuttles stopped a couple times on the way to let us off to use bathrooms and get snacks. both shuttles had AC 🙂 We paid for both shuttles by Pay Pal prior to our rides so we didnt have to have all that cash on us! Great experience.
Shuttle was on time, drivers were friendly and helpful, and they made special accommodations to get us up to our villa where the shuttle couldn’t go. Highly recommend
Very friendly and professional. Was awesome to get the short cuts as it got us to our destination that much faster!! Will definitely be using tropical tours shuttle service again!!
Most amazing surf instructor
As a brand new, learning to surf, solo traveller, I was a little unsure of what I’d be able to accomplish. Amit is an incredibly knowledgeable surfer, but not only that a very funny, caring, and compassionate teacher… Read more
Great service, on time
We used this company a couple times in Costa Rica and were very happy with them. They were always on time (early actually) and the drivers were great. They drove safely and were very fun to talk with – they were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot from them. Will definitely use them again.
Awesome, reliable, friendly service
I used Tropical Tours from/to the airport and i also booked a snorkeling tour in Montezuma with them.
Amazing customer experience, i have nothing to complain about. The guys who took us snorkeling were so friendly and helpful, same for the shuttle drivers. I can only recommend them!… Read more
Really not a good shuttle service
I reserved a shuttle through Tropical Tours Shuttles from Tamarindo to Montezuma in Costa Rica. The shuttle was an hour late and the company made no effort to contact me before or after the scheduled pick up time until I emailed them… Read more
Shuttle from Montezuma to Liberia CR
Excellent service. Had to change shuttles twice to take on new passengers, but it was not a problem.
Ride in comfort
Beautiful drive down the coast from Samara to Santa Teresa. Aircon comfort with wifi in van. Worry free.
Excellent shuttle system
We used Tropical Tours for its shuttle operation between Montezuma and Liberia. The reservation was straightforward with immediate confirmation, the shuttle arrived on time and offered a smooth ride with 2 stops during the 4-5 hour drive. Highly recommended.
AMAZING SERVICE, TOP NOTCH CUSTOMER SERVICE
Tropical Tours exceeded my expectations. Not only was our trip from Santa Teresa to Nosara enjoyable but when I realized that I forgot my passport at the hostel in Santa Teresa, this amazing company saved my life. I had no way of driving 6 hours back to get it myself, so tropical tours actually picked the passport up and brought it all the way to Nosara for me on their next trip. WOW. Excellent customer service would recommend this company to everyone!!
Great option for transportation!!
We used Sunset and Waves to travel from Liberia to Santa Teresa and from Montezuma to Liberia. The drivers arrived on schedule and were very helpful. The vehicles are air conditioned and the 30 passenger bus provided free wifi. Booking is easy through their website.
Professional and friendly. Highly recommended. Seats are comfy and I was able to book with them for excursions and shuttle to and from the airport.
Liberia to Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
Got us there and back safely and quickly, 1st trip through the night and 2nd trip just in time for our flight.
My girlfriend and I used Sunset and Waves for transportation from Tambor airport to our hotel and back. They were very professional and were always on time. They got us to our destination in perfect timing and made us feel safe and relaxed. We will use them again on our next trip!
Muy buen viaje y muy cómodo. Puntualidad en la salida y en la llegada y excelente conducción. Lo recomiendo al 100%
Super easy to organize, quick answer, A/C in the shuttle and WIFI for long travel. Friendly drivers. Thanks
Convenient, quick and personable service
Each encounter was pleasant, fast and comfortable. On the pricy side, but wouldn’t recommend against this place as reliability and quality are paramount when traveling in a new country with an unfamiliar language.
I had a last minute decision to take a trip and tropical tours answered me immediately. They’re very good at communicating with you for whatever needs you may have. Very friendly and informative!
I got picked up at the Tambor airport by myself I felt safe and comfortable. I will use them when I return next time
Great door to door service Nosara to Santa teresa beach
I had excellent well Priced service from a friendly and accommodating driver who also helped quite a bit with Spanish language skills. Drive through the Costa Rica. Countryside during dry season was spectacular.
Expensive but nice service
It is expensive, but you will recrive a good service. Take up directly in de hostel and directly to the door of the destination. Otherwise we would have to change the bus like 4 times with little spanish skill.
A bit of a cluster…
The bus was nice, first driver was good but became rushed when clients were not ready to be picked up. It was not my favorite that our bags got shuffled through a back window, this were out of our site… Read more
Trip to Playa Grande
took this shuttle, 4 1/2 hours from Santa Teresa to Playa Grande, well almost. Though the shuttle company lists it as a “to” & “from” p/u & drop off point, I was able to board in Santa Teresa after waiting 1 1/2 hours due to road paving… Read more
Very organized transport
I used Tropical shuttle for a trip from Tamarindo to Montezuma close to New Year’s Eve. They were very organized and punctual.
Seguro y agradable
Muy puntuales y nos esperaron donde habíamos quedado, muy agradables los chicos y los drivers. Acompañados hasta entrar al ferry y nos estaban esperando a la salida tambien. Gracias por todo!
Trip with Tropical Tours
A really good and safe trip. They picked us up on time and droped us off at the hostel we booked. Friendly drivers.
Airport to Paquera
Great trip. Easy to find the chofer, easy to communicate and an overall great experience. Thank you.
Favorite transportation company
One of the better transportation companies. Will always book through them. Same in price as the other with the luxury of wifi onboard making long trips easier. Drivers are ontime and helpful.
Solid Shuttle Service
On time pick up in nice vehicle with safe and curious driver for my trips from the Tambor airport to Cabuya and back. Will totally use again.
Best Shuttle Service
We took the shuttle from Liberia Airport to Santa Teresa. Everything went smoothly, from the pick-up at the airport to the drop-off at our rental house. Very easy booking online, and nice minibus. Thank you for such a great trip! We will be back.
Depends on the driver…
I had three drivers on my trip from Sámara to Montezuma. The first one drove very fast and agressive, I was scared and finally very happy, when I could change the bus. The next driver did a very good job so that the rest of the journey was really relaxed. The third part was a short transport with a private vehicle.
Professional and top notch shuttle service
Took the TT shuttle from Tamarindo to Montezuma. Driver turned up on time and before we started told us we would be changing bus at Nicoya. Timely service and although expensive compared to local buses was good value overall. Door to door service.
Great Shuttle Service
They were very helpful when we booked and reliable. We took their shuttle from Liberia Airport to Santa Teresa and back again. It was the best price for a shuttle that we could find and accommodating. It was an easy process to book online with Tropical Tours and got us to and from our destinations in good time.
We used Sunset and Waves as a service to pick us up at our hotel and provide water taxi service to Jaco. They were excellent. Our family of 6 with luggage were picked up by a friendly driver. Luggage was wrapped in plastic to keep it dry and we had a nice 30 minutes to check out the town before boarding. The boat was fast and the breeze welcome! Wear slip off shoes as you’ll wade into the water.
Has anyone ever used this shuttle service? I’d like to book this to pick us up from the airport in Liberia and I can’t find any information on it.

Daily shuttles are very popular all around Costa Rica, it’s the second most used transportation service among turists after public buses…
