Drop Off Points

While the price of this package only includes transportation beginning in San Jose, after Monteverde we’ll drop you off in any of the following areas, so that you can work this package into the flow of your Costa Rica itinerary. Estimated drive times from Monteverde are in parenthesis.

  • San Jose. Your choice 25-minute flight or 4-hour van, 1-hour boat.
    Click here for pick up and drop off points in San Jose.
  • Manuel Antonio (4.5 hours)
  • Golfo Papagayo (4.5-5 hours)
  • Coco - Ocotal (4.5-5 hours)
  • Tamarindo- Conchal- Flamingo (4.5-5 hours)
  • Montezuma – Santa Teresa (6-7 hours – you’ll cross the Gulf of Nicoya via ferry)
  • Arenal (3-4 hours)

From San Jose we offer transportation via either a small charter plane (25-minute flight), or a combination of van and boat. You choose. There is no cost difference between the two. For all your drop off points from Monteverde, you’ll travel via van.

Van transfers from San Jose are with Costa Rica Expeditions. Transfers from all other destinations are with shuttle transportation companies that normally pick-up and drop off at several hotels before embarking on the journey. They use a hub system, so you may change to a vehicle specific to your destination halfway through the trip. The driver will be Spanish speaking, and it’s important to keep in mind that this transfer will not be accompanied by sightseeing or wildlife stops. We offer private transfers with our vans and drivers at considerable additional cost. Let us know if you want a quote.

IMPORTANT: If you’re not sure about your itinerary yet, please don’t hesitate to bring questions to our reservations staff. They’ll be happy to let you know logistics, and tell you which hotels are visited by shuttles.
