Costa Rica Shuttle Transportation Service
Shuttle service is a shared transportation option in an air-conditioned minibus (or coaster) between popular destinations. Shuttle routes operate daily, and in some cases there are multiple departure times throughout the day. However, shuttles are by no means a public bus. They are subject to availability and must be reserved in advance.
For group sizes of one, two, and sometimes three people, shuttle service is a convenient and economical way to travel. However, depending on group size, private transport may offer a better price per person and a more flexible departure time.
For nearly all the shuttle transportation routes, there is at least one stop along the way where passengers can stretch, use the facilities, and get a snack. In most cases, shuttle transport provides door-to-door service, picking passengers up at hotels in the starting destination and dropping them off at hotels in the final destination.
However, sometimes a particular hotel is located outside the area’s main hotel zone, and the shuttle will not provide this door-to-door service. In these cases, a taxi can take you and your group to the shuttle pick-up or your final hotel stop.
