Transportation from Tortuguero to Manuel Antonio

I would like to know if there is transportation other than public bus or flying between Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio. Maybe a shuttle or private driver? Any estimates on length of time and cost?

Dear Gink...

You can hire a private driver...maybe meet the driver at Siquirres...if they dropp you by Cañoa Blanca...or around Siquirres if they do it to La Pavona...depends on the Lodge in Tortuguero...

From there drive to San Jose about 2 hours...then about 3 hours to Manuel Antonio...

I love Tortuguero. When you take a package to visit that place, they always provide you with transportation back from Tortuguero to SJ. It is advisable that you hire a private driver to pick you up once you are in SJ. Well , that's If you want to save some money. The ride from SJ to Manuel Antonio takes about 3 hours depending on the stops along the way to eat something or just enjoy the crocodiles at the Tarcoles River
