Getting to Liberia from Drake Bay

So, I plan to fly into Drake Bay from SJO via Sansa. It's a fairly reasonable price and it will save me time. But, I'm curious how to get from Drake Bay to Liberia. Looking for cost efficient way, since I'll have an entire day to make trip back. What are your suggestions?

Yes it is a long ...long day...basically you are driving from Drakes South Pacific near Panama border to Liberia near Nicargua broder...

Easy 12 hour ride...can be less but not that much...

Unfortunately, flights are booked. How much do you think a private driver would cost? Or what other way out is there? Bus?

The best is to try to rent a car one way...private driver will be a lot of money...

Take a bus from Puerto Jimenez ( Rincon de OSA)...to San Jose and from there another one to Liberia...you just can seat and relax...!

You can take the bus from Palmar to San Jose, then a bus to Liberia

When you say 'flights are booked' do you mean that neither Sansa nor Nature Air have availability on your date, or that you've already booked your tickets in/out of Costa Rica?
