Without a rental car, yes?

Take the boat to La Pavona, bus to Cariari, bus to Guapiles, bus to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui. Check details and schedules at www.tortuguerovillage.com and www.thebusschedule.com .

Get a private driver to wait for you in La Pavona or in Cariari.

Thanks for the response. Should have clarified. Yeah - we won't have rental car. I also checked the public bus option and feel that might be too long.

Will having a private driver cut down on the travel time significantly ? How can I arrange for a private driver to wait in La Pavona or Cariari. Which is a good company to use for this purpose.

Thanks a lot.

You can contact one of the private drivers/companies listed on this forum frequently (open Top questions no.4), or contact La Selva (or do both). Once you will make your decision about a driver/company it will be easy to arrange a meeting point. More then cutting down the travel time it will cut down the hassle by waiting/searching for the right bus to board.
