transportation from SJO airport to downtown San Jose

Does anyone know the approximate cost (in 2014) for a taxi from the San Jose, Costa Rica airport to the downtown area? Is there still a bus that goes from the airport to downtown? Thanks!

Yes, there are buses from the airport to downtown San Jose. The Tuasa buses (big red bus) travel frequently between Alajuela and San Jose and pick up at the street that runs in front of the airport. Pay the driver in colones which you can get from an ATM before you exit the terminal.

A taxi is around $25, depending on where in San Jose you would be going.
