Getting from Tamirindo to Montezuma

Headed to Costa Rica for 2 weeks in late March/early April. Our first stop is going to be the Tamarindo area, then we were looking to head down to Montezuma. Are there bus routes that take you from Tamarindo to Montezuma? We're trying our hardest not to have to rent a car. Thanks!!

I'm doing the same in late may and was wondering if anyone knew the best bus routes on this path. Thanks.

I think you will have to take a bus to Liberia, then to Nicoya and then to Montezuma.

There is a private shuttle bus running from Tamarindo to Montezuma, run by Tropical Tours (phone 26401900). Price is $45 per person. It is a long journey, as the road deteriorates dramatically south of Nicoya. Journey time around 4-5hrs. This is the quickest and most comfortable route.

As far as I am aware the bus from Liberia will take you to Puntarenas, ferry to Paquera, bus to Montezuma. Fastest travel time around 6 hours, plus add at least another hour to get from Tamarindo to Liberia. Cheap, but expect delays.
