Transportation from Fortuna airport

We fly into the Fortuna airport and will still at the Tabacon hotel. Does anyone know if there is a shuttle or taxis available at the airport? And how much do they run?

We just returned from CR on Saturday and we spend 4 nights in La Fortuna. I would suggest renting a car. Tabacon is a very nice place, but out of town and you really need a car to explore the area. We just returned from Arenal on Saturday and we ended up renting a car for 2 days in La Fortuna (we got a small Peugeot from Alamo; the roads in the area are good and if you do not plan on any extreme driving this car should be enough; we paid $45 per day, all taxes and fees included). The guys from Alamo were very nice and they gave us a ride to the airport in the morning at no charge (we had an early flight with Sansa from La Fortuna airport to San Jose). The driver told us that they do this all the time for people who rent cars from them. I would try to call them and ask them to pick you up at the airport (http://www.alamocostarica.com/). They will most likely do it and on the way back you can stop by their office and get your car. You will save a lot of money by renting a car and not using taxis. Most of them have broken meters and they will charge an arm and a leg if you do not agree on a price before you hop on. We used them for our 2 days in the area and finally got fed up with them and decided to rent a car. We were happy we did!

Have fun in Arenal. It is a great place to vacation!
