About
THE ESCAPE BUS The only Escape Room in the Central Pacific zone of Costa Rica is located in Jaco...What Are We... Exactly? What is an Escape Room? An escape room, also known as an “escape game”, is an interactive adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints, and strategic thinking to complete the objective at hand. Players are given a set time limit to solve the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. What is an Escape Bus? We have two escape themed rooms – Lost Treasure~A Pirate Escape and the Cartel Murders~A Crime Scene Investigation! Each room is interactively centered on the story line and the rooms are built for 2-6 people. Traditionally, some escape buses are mobile – OURS IS NOT! The bus will not physically move – therefore, the only journey you will be on is the one which begins when you enter the escape room of your choice.

I went with my parents and we had a BLAST at the escape bus! This is the perfect night time activity in Manuel Antonio. The puzzles are challenging but fun and the air conditioning was nice after a hot day. Thanks for giving us a great time!!

Fun escape room, friendly owners
Apr 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I had a blast at the escape bus! I love escape rooms and have done quite a few but this was my boyfriend’s first escape room. We did the pirate room and both loved it! The theme felt very authentic with creative props and a variety of interesting puzzles. The room is a bit small, so we were glad to do it with just the two of us, but I’m sure it would also be fun with a bigger group. The room isn’t too difficult and they give you enough clues to help you through. Ken and Shannon were super friendly and fun to talk to. It was a really great experience. Highly recommend. :)

I had the chance to do the escape bus as an activity with a couple friends of mine. It exceeded every expectation I had! The owners are fun, welcoming and accommodating. The puzzle itself is challenging, but clever and the owners will help you out if you're really in a bind. I have recommended this to everyone who is in Manuel Antonio or is coming to visit Manuel Antonio. PLUS it's air conditioned inside the bus, so it's a fun way to beat the heat :)

Will you escape in time!? ⏳

Tried El Escape Bus for a friend's birthday. This was by far one of the most fun activities I have done living in Manuel Antonio. A game of strategy, problem-solving and so much fun.
They've added a personal touch to the game by adding comments and encouragement through the computer screen with clues. Each clue was thoughtfully planned and required you think outside the box. The owners are fabulous and friendly all adding more fun to the experience.
Appropriate for all ages and group types - just make sure your team work and problem-solving game is strong!!!

Such a great idea and a fabulous addition to the Manuel Antonio activities!!

Friendly Owners, Fun Escape Room
Mar 2019 • Friends
My friend and I truly enjoyed the escape bus. We did the pirate room which was a lot more fun than I initially expected. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful with explaining how it works. It’s a great way to spend an hour bonding with friends and family.

Super fun way to spend about an hour!

I had never heard of "escape rooms" before but my friends own this one and I just had to try it out. Two of us chose the "Pirate" room and had a blast trying not to look totally stupid LOL. If we had relaxed and followed the clues properly we could have escaped earlier, but we did just manage to get out in under an hour. Try it. It's a great experience.

Unexpected find - great fun!
Feb 2019 • Couples
We’ve played escape rooms in many countries but were not expecting to find one on our whistle stop tour of Costa Rica. We were glad we stumbled on this one. We played the pirate based room as a pair and managed to get out with a few minutes to spare. It was really good fun with a variety of challenges and clues were delivered at just the right pace to keep us heading in the right direction.
They have only been open a short time but they deserve to do well. If we had been around the next day we would have played the other room too.

More Fun than a Barrel of Monkeys
Feb 2019 • Family
We discovered this gem of an adventure while driving back from the beach in Manual Antonio. I can't begin to describe how much fun this new and unique attraction is for the entire family. My wife & I were joined by my son and his girlfriend and to say we had a blast would be an understatement. We all played the "game" together, although, admittedly, I was the slowest one at solving (or sometimes, understanding) the puzzles. Without going into too much detail, (figuring it out is half the fun), this "game" is great for kids and adults alike.
It's a great time if you want to get out of the sun (or rain) or spent the evening doing something other than drinking or watching Netflix...
Truly, we all couldn't remember when we had so much unadulterated pure fun as a family. And nobody got hurt, as long as you don't count my ego...
We can't recommend this activity highly enough - it's the most unique adventure in Manual Antonio; dare I say in Costa Rica!
Bravo to the owners for bringing this form of entertainment and thinking outside the box. The Escape Room was the perfect change of pace to the usual drab offerings in a tourist destination.
We can't wait to go back!!!
