Private shuttle or Air. Which one is the most scenic?Safest?

Hi (again)

I have been in Santa Teresa before but this time a friend of mine is coming with me but she is afraid of flying with small planes. I used sansa before but she found some bad reports about aircrash so she want to take a shuttle (private) and the ferry instead. For me its just like 5 hour longer trip instead of 30 minutes on a plane, so my question is. Is it a nice trip/scenic view or just a bumpy road. What about the ferry, is it big, is it nice, does it has toilets and restaurants? What do you prefer the plane or shuttle/ferry I want to know everything.

I fly whenever possible as I prefer the 30 minute plane ride to 5 hours of driving!!! If you look into anything (fatality rate of the car crashes here in Costa Rica vs. flying I'm sure it's actually statistically safer to fly).

If your friend just can't handle the 30 minute flight, the drive will be beautiful, everywhere you drive here is truly beautiful!

Personally, I like to drive, because I too hate little planes. But as was mentioned, it is probably safer to fly, statistically. There are very few plane crashes here. I've not heard of one for years.

Yes it is pretty to drive, and the ferry is fun too. With a private shuttle you could stop anytime you like for bathroom breaks, refreshments or photo ops, which you are bound to see!
