Checking flights...

Air

The airport is 4km north of the town center near the duty-free zone. NatureAir and Sansa have daily flights to/from San José. One-way tickets can be as little as US$50.

Boat

There are two main boat docks for passenger service: the Muellecito is the main dock in the southern part of town. There is a smaller dock north of the Muelle Bananero (opposite the ICE building) where you’ll find the Asociación de Boteros, an association of water taxis that can provide services anywhere in the Golfo Dulce area.

Fast ferries travel to Puerto Jiménez from the Muellecito (US$6, 30 minutes), departing at 7am, 10am, 11:30am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm daily. This schedule is subject to change, so it's best to check for current times at the dock; in any event, show up early to ensure a spot.

You can also take a private water taxi to Puerto Jiménez. You’ll have to negotiate, but prices are usually between US$25 and US$30 per person (sometimes with a US$60 minimum).

At research time there was no scheduled shared lancha (small motorboat) to Zancudo, but you can negotiate with loitering boatmen to run you over for around US$30 per person. If you’re staying at a coastal lodge north of Golfito and you’ve made prior arrangements for transportation, the lodge will pick you up at the docks.

Bus

Most buses stop at the depot opposite the small park in the southern part of town. Tracopa buses depart from the stop across from the fire station.
