Public bus from Liberia to Tamarindo

I am wondering where you catch the bus at the airport and how much it is.

To get the bus for Tamarindo, take a taxi from the terminal to the bus stop on the highway. (When you come to the intersection of the airport road and the main highway, it will be to your right.) The bus from Liberia to Tamarindo will stop here. You will pay the driver in colones which you can get from an ATM at the airport.

You can walk from the terminal to the bus stop but it's just over a mile and no sidewalk and it will be quite hot. So spending a couple of dollars for a taxi is well worth it.

For schedule information: www.thebusschedule.com/cr/ Look for Liberia to Tamarindo and then add about 20 minutes to the time the bus leaves Liberia. This is when it should arrive at the bus stop at the airport.

Not sure of the cost - but probably something like 2000 colones or less.

Thank you Hattie for this straight-forward, helpful advice. I will take the red taxi's with a yellow triangle. Do they have any problem with such a short fare?

Barney, the official taxis (the red ones with the yellow triangles) generally have to pay for an extra set of permits in order to operate out of the airport. Generally, these guys will be looking for a longer/larger fare than just to the corner, so they might overcharge a little just to take you to the corner. However, if you wait until the rush of people leaving your flight dies down, you might be able to haggle with one of the left over taxis for a better price!
