Air

Sansa services Quepos. Prices vary according to season and availability, though you can pay a little less than US$75 for a flight from San José or Liberia. Flights are packed in the high season, so book (and pay) for your ticket well ahead of time and reconfirm often. The airport is 5km out of town, and taxis make the trip for US$8.

There's also a US$3 entry/exit fee at the airport.

Bus

Scheduled private shuttles, operated by Gray Line, Easy Ride and Monkey Ride, run between Quepos/Manuel Antonio and popular destinations such as Jacó (US$35), Monteverde (US$59), Puerto Jiménez (US$79), San José (US$50) and Uvita (US$35).

All buses arrive at and depart from the busy, chaotic main terminal in the center of town. If you're coming and going in the high season, buy tickets for San José in advance at the Tracopa ticket office at the bus terminal; colectivo (shared taxi) fares to San José are slightly cheaper and take two hours longer.
