Transportation from San Jose to Hilton Papagayo

The shared shuttles don't list Hilton as a drop off. We will be arriving in Papagayo from San Jose in the evening. Does anyone know the closest drop off location and how we can get from there to Hilton or does anyone know of a shuttle that takes you directly to Hilton? Thanks!!!

The shared shuttles by Interbus or grayline would take you there, just ask them when you make the reservation

They should take you to Hilton. I have seen their vehicles there. Try contacting them.

MikeA943 is right, there are affordable shuttles that can easily transport you, air con vehicles, clean and modern. taxis will cost more and sometimes have questionable maintenance records. Safety is the main concern.

Have a great holiday.

YES Interbus can take you directly to Hilton Papagayo...of course when you make the reservation with them let them know and one way per passenger is $ 55.00

Our official red taxis they go to different inspections yearly...for the costumer protection any problem with them report them...they have a ID at each vehicle...

For a transfer, the best would be with Alex (alajuelatours@gmail.com). He will pick you up and deliver you where you want. He speaks excellent English and has a new van. We use him all the time for pickups and for touring for ourselves and our guests and he is incredibly reliable.

When you have an opportunity Kristi H, take a look at a typical red taxi in the area of the Hilton, worn tires are common (as they switch to new only for the check, then switch back) body damage, squeaky brakes, it goes on and on. Better to take a shuttle for safety and convenience. Here is a transport link from TA offering some transport contacts tripadvisor.ca/Travel-g291982-c109576/Costa-…

Have a great holiday and

THANK YOU for coming to our beautiful country.

The best would be with Alex (alajuelatours@gmail.com). I have traveled to many places with him when I'm in Costa Rica. He will pick you up and deliver you where you want. He speaks excellent English and has a new van with air conditioning and free wi-fi. In addition, his van is fully insured and has all the permits the law requires. Don´t hesitate to contact him and you will get a great deal
