    San José Transportation

    In 1996, we took taxis infrequently - they were cheap, but most of the time we took local buses which were even cheaper. At that time we always asked the price before getting in. Now I understand the cabs have to use meters. After we landed at the airport, in the afternoon, we took a taxi from the hotel to San Jose (the capitol) for $8.00. We...

    Plenty of people vieing for your attention when you step outside of the airport. There is a booth right as you step outside of the international terminal for the "official cabs". They are orange and flat fare $12 US. If you don't want the hassle this is what I would suggest.

    San José Transportation

    Tica Bus and Transnica have a few daily buses from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. They leave Granada from two different bus terminals on Avenida Elena Arellano. Both have first class buses and offer about the same service. There is another company, King Quality, which seems to have a slightly better service but the price is almost double. After a little...

    San José Transportation

    We flew in to Juan Santamaria International Airport on Sunday 1996 Feb. 18. We did not have to pay for our tickets because we got passes from our daughter who was then a flight deck officer at a major airline. That made the trip very affordable. The central location of this airport is perfect, as from here once can reach almost any part of the...

    San José Transportation

    You will be hounded when you arrive at the airport by persons wanting to drive you to your hotel. Know that a good amount of these people are not certified taxi drivers (even if they carry a badge). It is safest to get a certified taxi, however I was taken into town by a non-certified taxi driver and paid about the same amount. He took interest...

    San José Transportation

    San José especially is not a place to be driving a car in Costa Rica. It is a big city - a lot of traffic and many of the streets are one way - confusing to the visitor. Calles (streets in Spanish) run from north to south, while the Avenidas are from east to west. Any Avenida north of the central avenue are going to be an odd number, while the...

  • City Bus

    San José Transportation

    For local trips to San Jose from our hotel, we took the local bus. We got the van shuttle to the airport and got the bus there into the city. The only problem was understanding where the bus was going as the dispatchers didn't speak English and our Spanish is rudimentary at best. We would then go to the San Jose bus station in the Coca Cola...

    San José Transportation

    It is possible to travel from San José to Tortuguero by public transportation. In fact, it's rather challenging, a mini adventure in itself. You have to take a bus to Cariari, then another bus to La Pavona and finally a boat to Tortuguero. Buses to Cariari leave from the Gran Terminal del Caribe. I was told that the first one departs at 6am, so I...

  • Walk

    San José Transportation

    Downtown San Jose is easy to navigate on foot. It's a grid and most attractions are easy to find. To make it even more obvious, look for the bright blue signs that let you know when you’ve reached an “destino cultural” not to be missed.
