    The facilities were wonderful. It was like being at home. Staff was great and very easy to converse with in English. Wake up each morning to howler monkeys and fall asleep with tree frogs! Very close to awesome Playa Carrillo. Gracias. Pura vida!

    Hello Ken-- A public shuttle is $90, and a private is $135. The decision depends on what time your flight arrives, and both do require reservations. Hope that helps. Saludos, Rosy Rios
