If you mean he public bus - cost about $8 per person- it does not stop at the airport. To get the directo you would have to get to San Jose , to the Tracopa bus station. If you take an airport cab, it will cost about $30. There are several departures per day and the trip is about 3 hours. You can actually flag down the "colectivo" or non direct bus at a place called Puente Villa Bonita near the airport. But this method is not for everyone. We are frequent bus travellers on that route so if you have specific questions , just ask. For details about bus schedules you can have a look at http://www.thebuss hedule.com Od,if you want to do a shared shuttle you can check either Interbus or Greyline. The fare ia about $45 per person. Or for about $160 you can arrange for a private driver. There is a lot of information about transportation options in the top questions on the right side ofmthe main Costa Rica Forum.
