I've been traveling to CR since 2001, many, many times. I just don't ever take airport taxis further than my hotel in Alajuela. And then I bus it into San Jose. This time, I will be picking my brother up from the airport the day after I arrive. instead of the TUASA bus, I'm thinking a taxi would be the fastest way to get us to the MEPE Station.
**Since I travel alone - what is the rule for 2ppl as opposed to one? Is it the same fare or is there an upcharge?
**I read that the airport…
Hi - I'm planning a trip (8 or 9 days) to Costa Rica in late May/Early June. My wife and I have two little kids - 2 and 4. We don't mind a simpler trip - no zip lines or major adventures this time. We are hoping to see a lot of wildlife/birds. Our travel agent is recommending that we split the time between Arenal, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio which seems fine (though we are open to other suggestions if you've got 'em :) ). We're wondering what activities are safe/fun for really little kids like…
Hi - I am looking to take the Puntarenas ferry to Paquera to make it to Santa Teresa. Does anyone know of a bus schedule that goes from Paquera to Santa Teresa? The stuff I am finding online has very infrequent times that do not correspond with the ferry arrival times which seems odd.
Thanks for any information.
Older couple, staying cahuita then considering vejo for a couple of nights . We have a car. Is it better to stay in Cahuita...if indeed Cahuita safer...seems a lot of people saying Vejo is unsafe.
I've done a bit of reading and am really keen to do the 3 day hike in Corcovada (Puerto Jimenez - Los Patos Ranger Station - Sirena Ranger Station - La Leona - Carate). I haven't found much information on costs, but saw someone's post saying they paid $500 for 2 people. This is a probably a bit more than I'll be willing to pay alone for 3 days so ideally would like to share this or look at the alternative of going to Drake Bay. Not definite yet but will probably arrive in Puerto…
Hey there !
I am starting to plan my first trip to Central America and I just have a quick question regarding buses.. My flight would land at SJO at 4pm.. is it still possible to get to Arenal/La Fortuna by public bus? Is it possible to reserve bus tickets beforehand?
Thank you for your input ! :)
I'm supposed to be flying to Costa Rica on Tuesday from Bogota. I've been reading that I may get asked for my yellow fever certificate (that I don't currently have). My flight is in two legs and I connect in Panama, if I re-check in at Panama will I be exempt from needing my yellow fever or will they know I've only been there for a few hours? I could try and get the vaccination in Bogota tomorrow and I've read some clinics will backdate it for you (for a fee) does anyone know how easy it is…
My group is staying in Tamarindo for a week in July. Yes I know... lol
I want to try and make the best of it... what are the best ideas for day trips to get out of town and into a bit of nature? I don't need reasons why we shouldn't stay there if we want nature, it's not my idea of a great trip, I'm just along for the ride and this is what the group (wives) decided. lol
What are the best options for hikes, zip lines, anything... that will get us out of town to see something else? We…
