Transport Flamingo - Samara

We are staying at the Flamingo Beach resort for a few days and feel we might split our remaining time with Samara before returning to Sj next Friday. Would appreciate advice on best way to get there (we don't have a car) considering price and time. Many thanks in advance.

Reliable, affordable, clean, professional, a/c, shared van-easy:

http://www.interbusonline.com. They can fill up fast so don't wait...as soon as you've booked your hotels reserve it online!

Enjoy!

The best way to get to Samara Area from Flamingo is using a private van transfer which will customize your departure time and drop off.

A private van transfer is convenient since they conform to your schedule and not the other way around. However, as you might imagine, a private van transfer is much more expensive than a shared van shuttle.

It seems pretty obvious that a poster with a name like "kingdom tours" has a vested interest in this kind of transportation.

Your other option is to ride the public bus which is much cheaper but more of a hassle. You can look here for more information: www.thebusschedule.com

It's a great way to get around but often more time-consuming, depending on the route. And a real cultural immersion since this is how most Costa Ricans get around.

Thanks for the replies. I will look at Interbus. Not really happy here at Flamingo Beach resort, got a bad start so we will probably not stay more than the three days we booked from home. Will post a new question regarding hotel recommendations in Samara, should we decide to go there the dat after tomorrow.

Walk across the street to Ecotrans and see if they go to Samara. If not, they would know all the schedules.
