Taking a taxi from La Fortuna to San Jose at 3:00 a.m.

I have a flight that leaves at 8:30 a.m. (check in at 6:30) from San Jose and I'll be staying in La Fortuna. Is it possible to get a taxi from La Fortuna to San Jose at 3 in the morning? I really do not want to stay in San Jose overnight.

Ahhh, we all have thinking of SJO. If Pavas then you might check this hotel http://www.hotelislaverde.com/ . Anyway, come early or late but do come safe, so be there one night earlier.

We stay at the Orquidas Inn in Alejuela when we come in and out of San Jose. In th hills outside of the bustle of town, pool, fun bar, good restaurant. Nothing fancy, but kind of a tradition for us....been going there since 2001.

We are kind of like you...we decided not to spend any nights in San Jose...we are getting a private transfer upon our international arrival into the big San Jose airport about 5pm and being taken to Arenal area.

On a different leg of our journey we are taking a private transfer from Puerto Viejo leaving at 5:00am or so to go to Tobias for our Nature Air flight to Drake Bay...we know the risks and it would be terrible if due to weather or construction or stike etc..to miss our flight but that is a chance we are taking in order to spend our precious vacation nights at the areas we want to visit.

Our trip is next month, but we have prepaid and received confirmation/vouchers from a company Easy Ride Shuttle. They have a webiste info@easyridecr.com and have been helpful and nice to work with.

It is expensive for private transfers but to us it is worth it.

Have a great trip!

The thing is Megan, you can arrange your transfers so that you arrive late in the day or early evening - or later. I don't think you will miss much of the Caribbean coast by not spending the night there. You can have a leisurely trip from the coast to a hotel near the airport in Pavas for your Nature Air Flight and enjoy a nice dinner. Then you will be ready the next morning for your flight with no worries about anything.
