Buses from Quepos to Jaco

by deblaya

Hello,

Can anyone give me any info on buses that go from Quepos to Jaco? Things like schedules, total travel time, cost. My husband and I are planning on traveling from Quepos to Jaco late April of this year and would preferably want to leave early in the morning.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Any reason you want to spend time in Jaco? If you are set on going despite the fact that I think most places in CR are more worthwhile, there are buses leaving the main bus terminal in Quepos all day long. It takes about 1.5 hours.

I believe the schedule is it leaving Quepos at 5 am, 8, 11, 2:30 pm, 4:30 pm. Though it is a bigger station in Quepos so they have schedules posted and you can buy tickets in advance on some buses. I think I remember paying 750 colones or so which works out to just over a $1. The bus goes to Puntarenas but stops in Jaco.

Thanks!
I don't really want to spend time in Jaco except to catch the water taxi to Montezuma. I heard thats the fastest way to get there from Quepos even though it costs more. If you have any other suggests about getting to Montezuma from Quepos I loved to hear them.
Thanks again!

The water taxi is definitely the quickest and easiest way to get to Montezuma from Quepos. You may want to pre-book the water taxi (in fact it may be a requirement) since it appeared to me that it left only when there were passengers. Keep in mind that the water taxi leaves from HERRADURA beach which is a few minutes in taxi from downtown Jaco (not walkable). When I went, the water taxi was $35 each way and 1 hour.

If you wanted to save a lot of money but lose some time, you can take regular buses the long way around to Montezuma. The same bus going from Quepos to Jaco continues onto Puntarenas, from where you can get one of 2 ferries (two different docks) to the Nicoya Peninsula and from where there are buses taking people to Cobano and onto Montezuma/Mal Pais. This will cost you a total of maybe $4 but will take pretty much all day to get there. Its not a total waste though because you do get to see a bit of the local character and on a nice day, the ferry is a beautiful ride.

Travel Tips for Quepos

Quepos

by Helga67

Quepos is a medium-sized fishing town. The village center is full of restaurants, bars, hotels, art galleries and gift shops. You will also find a supermarket, bank and pharmacy.

Quepos used to be an important port for the transportation of bananas, but in the 1980's bananas were replaced by the African palms for its palm oil. As Quepos got less important as a banana port, it renewed itself as an ecotourism and sportfishing destination.

Quepos is the town to stay when you are on a budget. For the more expensive hotels you have to drive a little further up the hill between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park.

There are no nice beaches in Quepos, but you will find them on the other side of the hill in front of or in Manuel Antonio NP.

Scuba Diving and snorkelling

by Geo80

Diving in the waters of Manuel Antonio Park. Host to scholls of Jacks, Sharks, rays, eels loadsa cool stuff. Either beginner classes, more advanced classes, even trips to Cano island for those more adventurous. Swimsuit and towel

a small waterfall...

by pollon

in the national park Manuel Antonio, at the end of the service road, before the last bend going left, on the right there is a not signed path which ends only in the little waterfall in the pic but it's very refreshing on a hot day and in a discreet point where you can even change your dress to enjoy it...
only don't expect more than a few inches of water in the river under you...

Not so pleasant service

by aliang9 about Cafe Milagros

The food there was nothing spectacular. Typical cafe food (muffins, eggs, bagels). However, the frozen drinks like Mono Loco and Quepoccino were great. One thing I did not appreciate was the snotty and unhelpful service. I guess Cafe Milagros is becoming more and more commercialized. :-( Mono Loco and Quepoccino.

Horseback Riding

by static1

We took a fun trip to a waterfall on horseback. It was very peaceful, and the scenery was amazing. We booked through Ranchos Los Tucanes (Several people recommended Finca Valmy, but we booked at the last minute and had trouble reaching them). The horses seemed a bit on the old side, but still had spirit. Our guide, Hugo, made sure we enjoyed ourselves, helped out with the kids, and even joined us swimming to show us where to go. The trip takes place just outside of a town called London, where Hugo grew up.

This cost about $50 per person.
