I'm trying to arrange transportation from the Liberia airport to SJDS for a group of 8 people - I have been to SJDS in the past, but am unfamiliar with the Nicaragua-Costa Rica border. Our flight arrives on a Saturday in February at 1:30 PM and we are hoping to make it to SJDS in time to pick up our rental car before Alamo closes.
I have been told by two people that the border closes in the afternoon/evening, one said at 4PM, the other said 8 PM. Does anyone have reliable information about this?
Also, I am wondering whether it is possible to charter a van or something similar to take us the entire way from Liberia to SJDS? Does Adelante or any similar company offer this type of service? Given the size of our group, I'd really like to have some sort of arrangements set up in advance if at all possible.
Any information about transportation services or about negotiating the border would be much appreciated! Thanks so much in advance!
