San Jose to Jaco

What is the safest way to get from the airport in San Jose to Jaco? Also- what is the cost? I'm not planning on renting a car- even though I think that would be the best. Thanks!

You can take the bus if you want to go cheap http://thebusschedule.com/cr/index.php or take advantage of one of the CR Forum suggested shuttles or private drivers tripadvisor.ca/Travel-g291982-c109576/Costa-…

The shuttles will be cheaper, and they operate on a fixed schedule, but if you prefer a driver, I personally recommend Danny Jimenez or Juan Carlos, both offer great rates and door to door service. Your last choice is a rental, and a small car would do, there are lots of rental agencies and the cheapest tax wise are off site from the airport. I recommend in this case Tricolor http://www.tricolorcarrental.com/

Lots to choose from, plenty of options. Have a great holiday.

To try to answer your question...safety is very important...but most shuttles and tour companies that are register by ICT will offer you the best and safe ride to Jaco from SJO... GUARANTEE!

The cost can start around $ 100.00 ...another great option is to rent a car...about $ 60.00 plus dropp off charges...and of course gas...

Some great companies...Toyota...Budget...Avis...Hertz...Alamo..National..Adobe...better to deal with the big guys in case of any dispute!

We took Interbus from Tamarindo to San Jose - they also go to Jaco and other places. The service was great and I would definitely use them again.

Looks like the transfer to Jaco would be about $35/person.
