Single female traveler, getting to Samara

I am planning a trip to Samara after Christmas and staying at a hostel for 5 weeks. I am wondering what you suggest the best way to get from SJO to Samara would be. The more low cost the better. However, I am a single, white female with very basic Spanish and safety (and not having my luggage stolen) is my biggest concern. Any advice would be appreciated!

CajonTraveler, thanks for the tip. I did not know that. I did go in thebusschedule.com but they did not have the specific times. I will try and find out just so that I know for the future.

Thanks :)

Thank you all for the advice! I will probably end up staying in SJO for one night and taking Interbus. It will be my first time in Costa Rica and I can't wait!

Can someone tell me what the fastest way to get from SJ to Samara is, how long it takes and what it costs?

Thank you!

Hi Heidimoe,

The fastest way is with public transportation for $205. It takes about 4 hrs. Next best thing is a semi-private transportation that costs $45- $50/person and takes about 5 - 5.5 hrs.

Have fun!
