Airport in San Jose to La Fortuna?

It sounds as if a direct bus is the best way to get from the airport in San Jose to La Fortuna. Does anyone know how long that bus ride is??

If you are wanting to catch the bus near the airport, then you can grab a taxi to the bus station in Alajuela known as "La Radial." The buses going north from San Jose stop here to pick up more passengers. The airport is in Alajuela, not San Jose.

Look here: www.thebusschedule.com/cr/ Look for the bus from San Jose to La Fortuna. It will arrive at La Radial about 1/2 an hour after leaving San Jose. You can also just pick up any bus at La Radial that is going to San Carlos and transfer there for the bus to La Fortuna. On that website San Carlos is "Ciudad Quesada" - just another name for it.
