Bus to La Fortuna

by SullyBiz

It seems that buses run regularly from the airport to Alajuela but I am trying to find the cheapest possible route from Alajuela (or Rio Segundo) to La Fortuna/Arenal. Does anyone have any info on local bus routes or a good place to look online?

You may have to go in to San Jose and take the bus from there. You can get a bus right outside the airport to go in to San Jose. This is a website called Costa Rican Travel Guides

Av 7/9 Calle 12 Terminal Atlantico Norte
San José 6:15, 8:30, 11:30 12:30, 14:30
Fortuna 1430 138 4:00 ***

Travel Tips for Alajuela

What is there to see?

by Suzanne123

Nothing noteable here. there is a lovely square in the centre of town and i think it is the only thing worth seeing. I missed being there when the mercado (market) was open. There are couple of supermarkets (pali) south and west (a few blocks) to the centre of town. The people here are more afluent than other cities in the country. You will see that they have pets and the women will have shorter hair styles. I felt fairly safe walking around.
