If you are interested we took a taxi the last time. It is about 120USD and is quicker. I have been told that it takes quite a long time to ride he bus. Let me know I have the email and phone of the taxi.

It takes about 2 hours 40 minutes to ride the bus from Samara to Liberia. It takes about two hours to drive. So $10 versus $110 or $120. Of course, a private driver picks you up and whisks you in a nice air conditioned vehicle. Your choice.

OK, that did not copy well at all. Is there an email I can send you the bus schedule in an Excel sheet which is much clearer to understand?

samarainfo - I think the way it came out is fine. Thanks for the great information - I have saved it in a file for future reference.

You might want to send a Private Message to the poster rather than asking for an email address on the open forum.

THERE IS a semi-private shuttle to the airport. Due to this thread, I thought our best option for getting from Samara to Liberia was to rent a car (Alamo). But when we were in Samara last week (September 2012), just walking down the main street (the one parallel to the beach, first one up), we saw a kiosk for shuttle service: $45 from Samara to Liberia airport, or $84 for two people.

We booked the shuttle with 9am pick up from our hotel, and arrived in Liberia a little before 11am. We were the only people in the mini-van.
