      Still having trouble with transportation issues from San Jose to Monteverde and then from Monteverde to Samara. Back to airport from Samara. The $150 x 2( to MV then from Samara) for the shuttle is more than we would like to spend and don't mind the public bus but can we easily tell which ones to change to during the changes. For car rental how bad are the roads to and in Monteverde? Any suggestions or anyone wanting to share transportation July 11 to Monteverde?

      I have been doing some research about how to get from San Jose to Cahuita and i have seen several different stations: the Gran Terminal de Caribe, the coca-cola terminal, the carribian terminal. I was wondering if these were all the same, they seem to have the same bus times, or if they were all different. If they are different, which one is the best bet? Cheapest, most convenient and fastest. Also will there be bus service on Christmas eve or Christmas Day?

    • Where to stay near Earth University

      Provincia de Limón Oct 21, 2010 at 12:09 PM

      I am going to CR for business, most likely the last week in Feb. 2011 and may be spending a day at Earth University in Guacimo. I am also hoping to bring my family with me to have a mini vacation after my business is done, most likely in the Puerto Viejo area. I'm looking for some options for a place to stay within a reasonable distance from the University. I'll likely only need one night but was hoping for someplace that my wife and 7 year old son would enjoy for the day while I'm at the University. I thought the Hotel and Country Club Suerro in Guapiles might be a good choice but, at least according to one site I looked at it appears to be sold out. I can't seem to find any other good options. Any ideas?

      Hello Travelers,
      I am looking to find the most efficient way (time and expense-wise) to get from Monteverde to Montezuma. It looks to me like most of the bus options are once a day and in the morning. Does anyone know of any options that leave in the early afternoon? Affordable travel options are always appreciated! I am open to most modes of transportation, i.e. bus, shuttle, rental car, ferry, etc? From what I have read so far, I should expect around 5 and a half hours for travel time? Definitely looking for an afternoon departure!
      Thank you in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!
