Private Buses or Rent a Car are the best choices !!
I’d rather go by bus. ~ Prince Charles, age six, when asked if he was excited about sailing to Tobruk on the Royal Yacht.AAround the Country Don’t be afraid to travel anywhere by bus, even if you get lost and wind up somewhere other than where you planned. Chances are it will be a pleasant adventure. It always was for us.
For excursions from San José into the countryside, we took either direct, first-class buses to destinations such as Jacó, Quepos or Puerto Viejo (maximum fare is under US $15), or semi-local buses to Cartago, Alajuela, Orosí and Heredia (about US $1).
When we vacation in Costa Rica, we usually ratchet down our lifestyle and travel by bus. It’s more ecological and there is no better place to be environmentally aware than Costa Rica.
On the other hand, driving around Costa Rica in a rental car is a popular and convenient way to see the country. You can stop to take pictures, go down side roads or change your mind about your destination en route. See driving tips.
