          Good experience
          Really lovely driver, was very competent on the road! Comfortable car, good aircon, plenty of stops to stretch and get a bit to eat :)

          The most efficient and elegant Tico-Nica cross-border experience
          Our cross-border transfer from Liberia airport to San Juan del Sur (SJDS ) with Shuttle Caribe was the best spent (US$100 for two adults). Collected on time by our driver at the airport, we were whisked away to Peñas Blancas—the border town. With Caribe’s drivers and Nicaraguan fixer at the border, we were in great hands. Our affable Nica driver, Rudy, also knew the manager of our Airbnb in SJDS and delivered us right to his office. So, we were handed from one person to the next (including checks by at least eight Tico/Nica officials at the border) and yet barely lifted a finger to negotiate the mess of border traffic that stretched for miles. Yes, you can spend much less money to spend much more time to make this journey. We appreciated the air conditioned comfort in modern vehicles, and our door-to-door trip was completed in less than three hours. All staff were super friendly and made us feel safe and happy in what can be a less pleasant experience. Thanks guys!

          Best shuttle service I ever used ! The driver came to pick me up at exactly 6 am sharp in San Juan del S. Nicaragua . Helped me pass through custom and pointed me to the other shuttle who was taking me to Costa Rica ! Very nice driver , great customer service ! I can only recommend this company for your adventures ! Thank you guys for being so efficient !

          Beware
          Booked on internet from Jaco to hotel in San Jose Costa Rica. Our hotel was not listed on drop down menu and the instructions said to enter hotel name in box below. I did and got a email saying they do not go to that hotel which is less the 3 miles from airport. They said for another $89.00 they could get me a private shuttle I said no thanks. They then said since I already paid $88.00 it was the best they could do. Asked and got supervisor who said they had recently got a lot of cancellations and he would refund my $88.00. Just got back home and guessed who charged me for a ride to a place they don't go. Thats right the caribe thieves. PS. I was able to book a shuttle that picked me up at my hotel in Jaco with another couple going to the airport and drop me at my hotel in San Jose and the driver did not need directions it turns out it is a well known place total cost for me $59.00

          Efficient, capable, safe transfers
          We use Caribe Shuttle to get from Bocas de Toro in Panama to Manzanillo, Costa Rica, and we're very glad we did! Not only does the service cover the boat trip from Bocas, which is on an island, but they were flexible and creative when we ran into trouble at the border. With coronavirus just starting to spread in Central America, some kind of protesters blocked the road at the border. After a few phone calls, the guide told us we should get our luggage and follow her down a dirt road and through a banana field where we arrived at the pedestrian crossing. After emigration and immigration, another shuttle was waiting for us on the Costa Rican side. The driver told us the the bathroom, there's the supermarket with cold beer, meet at the bus. He really knew what we needed at that point! The people of Caribe took a difficult situation and just made things work, saving us a lot of stress! Kudos! Thank you so much!

        Excellent service and excellent driver. They accommodated our pickup location and dropped us off right where we were staying. The driver was friendly and helpful and the van was very comfortable.

        My first experience with Caribe Shuttle and they were wonderful.. They made going to Bocas del Toro so easy, guided me every step of the way through immigration, shuttle changes, water taxi.
        Shout out to Kevin as an amazing host/guide on the shuttle telling us great places to go in Puerto Viejo area and in Bocas del Toro. He was friendly, knowledgable and fun..
        Drivers were very friendly, too!
        Thanks!
