transportation from sjo to jaco.

Anyone knows the cheapest way to get from sjo airport to jaco and back. I’m traveling alone and in a budget. No need for luxurious accommodation. Basic but secure. I have found us150 roundtrip but there must be something cheaper out there. I was thinking about shuttle. Does anyone know if there are public shuttle runing from sjo to Jaco. Prices????

The shared shuttles transfers with Interbus or Grayline would be cheaper approx $90.00 round trip but they have scheduled departures so you need to check if their times work for you. The public bus is the cheapest of all.

MikeA943 is right on this point, the shared shuttles are the way to go, but as he mentioned, public buses are cheap and pretty comfortable, but you will endure a few stops and lots of cheerful salsa music on the bus cd player. Here is the link if that's the way you want to go (in Jaco the bus stops downtown, or you can ask if a particular hotel is on the route) http://thebusschedule.com/cr/index.php

Hope this helps, and thanks for coming to visit OUR beautiful country.

If you are looking for the most affordable way...of course public buses and they run all day long...good buses .. a lot of nice people to meet along the way...juts be sure to keep a close eye on your luggage...

Of course will not be guarantee of any music...but is a lovely ride!

Bus is the cheapest, then the next best is interbus or grayline, then a private shuttle, maybe someone would like to share a ride with you cutting costs in half.

Does anyone happen to know how much the bus would cost to go to Jaco? i don't see it listed on the website and where you would catch it from the Juan Santamaria airport?

About 2,060.00 colones...close to $ 4.00 each way per passenger...JACO to San Jose...or San Jose to JACO...just ask the driver to stop by SJO...if you are going to SJO...be sure at embarkation point that the bus will drive by SJO..
