How to get from San Jose airport to Liberia?

by Jasonconga

hey guys,
I arrive 10am on August 1st at San Jose airport and we want to go directly to Liberia (or a beach town but that would be our main hub). How can we get from the airport to Liberia? Do we have to go into San Jose city and then connect to a bus or is there a bus from the airport going directly north-northwest?

thanks!

I have found in my travels, that you have to go to the bus station. I am almost positive that you can't go by direct bus from the airport. You should ask at the taxi stand as you exit the airport and take a cab to the bus station. I found this website: http://www.costarica.com/Trip-Planning/Getting-Around/Bus-Schedules/
Know that there is more than one bus station--there is a bus terminal for the Carribean in a different place (downtown by the Children's museum) from the buses going to the Pacific, or west of San Jose.

Depending on how much money you have to spend, you could hire someone to take you there. We hired a fella named Gerardo and on July 15, 2008, he charged us $200 (for 6 of us) to go from the airport to Flamingo Beach which is 45 minutes on the other side of Liberia. Here is his website:

You can always use Interbus, but I have never used them and have no idea of their prices https://www.interbusonline.com/

Suerte!!

The fastest way is to fly, this can take around 40 minutes vrs. the 4.5 -5 hour drive that awaits by ground. flights can range between $80.00 - $116.00 (you can consult this through www.natureair.com) or by ground could run up to $250.00 depending on how many people you travel with and what vehicle (and degree of comfort) you choose. Car Rental is also an option, the drive is pretty easy. have a great trip!

Flying is definately the fastest way if expense is not a concern. This would be through Sansa airline at the main airport or Nature Air at Pavas airport, requiring a taxi. If you plan to take a bus you are probably more on a budget. I always take the bus and don't mind this option for getting around. There are some buses that leave from Alajuela, which is the town where the airport is. There is a great website for finding bus schedules that is better than most on the internet. Most just have the main buses. This one has smaller bus companies too so you can even get from beach town to beach town. Check out www.busschedule.com/cr. This will show you entire routes including bus changes if needed to get from one place to another. By the way. It may take you a little while to get to Liberia from there. It takes a while to get from one place to another in this country.

Travel Tips for San José

One of the many small parks that dot San Jose

by zrim

Every block or two in downtown San Jose there is a a small park with a small monument. Presumably, these little parks honor great deeds of heroism in Costa Rica's more bloody past, before they abolished the army and became the American Switzerland.

This photo shows Parque Morazan which is scant on grass and long on pavement. It is close to the Jade Museum. The domed structure is a band pavilion.

Love and xxx ... Costa Ricans...

by markymark

Love and xxx ... Costa Ricans are very friendly people, but when it comes to relationships, be careful! Ive seen 2 people here who Ive explained my situation to from the start - ie that Im travelling and have no idea if Ill be here next week, let alone next month. The phrases ´I love you´, ´I need you´, and ´I miss you´ (the latter said after being apart for 24 hours, and within a few days of seeing each other!, kinda haunt me as reminders that I have hurt people here.

Butterfly Observatory

by besbel

This amazing butterfly observatory is also located inside the La Paz Waterfall Gardens. It consists on:
- a laboratory where butterflies are not only classified, but also controlled from their process of birth till they become adults. There's also a sort of museum where you can observe the types of butterflies that the area has.
- a closed area outside the laboratory where butterflies are free to fly and visitors can observe them.
- gorgeous hummingbird gardens where flowers, especially orchids, are grown in order to supply the hummingbirds what they need to live. There are around 16 types of hummingbirds in this area, which are also feed with a preparation of smashed bananas.

Red Taxis

by Stephen-KarenConn

Just about everywhere we went in San Jose we saw an abundance of bright red taxis, so there should be no problem in finding one, especially in the well-traveled areas of the city.

Taxis in San Jose are said to be generally inexpensive. A ride inside the city center will usually cost from 500 to 1000 colones, or a couple of dollars. As always, it's a good idea to agree on a price before taking the taxi, especially to outlying destinations, so that there will be no misunderstanding.

Good Tico Restaurant

by easterntrekker about La Cariollita

If you want to mingle with the locals and have a good sampling of Tico food this is the place. Lovely inside with huge dining rooms , wooden tables with bright green tablecloths...and a non smoking area!

The service is friendly , english is limited , although there is some english on the menu. Good food. , cheap...and big servings!

Closed at 8PM and all day Sunday The sea bass is wonderful ..liked the buttered bass the best ,. Hot garlic bread come with the meal. The black bean soup is a meal in itself!! Dinner for two with a beer was $23.00
