transportation from San Jose to Volcano National Park

What is the best way to get from the airport in San Jose to the Volcano National Park? We will have four of us and will be coming down in August. It will be our first trip to Costa Rica. Thanks for any advice.

"Best way?"

1. You can fly to La Fortuna and take a taxi to the National Park

2. You can hire private transportation

3. You can take a shared van shuttle to La Fortuna and then a taxi to the National Park.

4. You can take a public bus to La Fortuna and then a taxi to the National Park.

5. You can take any form of transportation to La Fortuna and then get the public bus for Tilaran and get off at the road that goes to the National Park and walk the rest of the way.

I had the same question, roadadvisor, but made the jump to answer because the question was posted in the La Fortuna de San Carlos forum. But...... I could be wrong!

Isn't Volcano National Park in Hawaii? I'm thinking they mean Arenal Volcano! If that is it, Hattie gave you the answer.

There are several "Volcano National Parks" such as Tenorio Volcano National Park or Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park.
