When I read the headline of your post, my first thought was: "Yeah, good luck with that!" Lol...

You can get to Santa Teresa from Playa Flamingo without going back to San Jose. (That would be a little crazy, actually)

Take a look here: www.thebusschedule.com/cr/

The reason for my original comment -- it makes a long day with several transfers. Flamingo to Liberia, Liberia to Puntarenas, ferry, Paquera to Cobano and Cobano to Santa Teresa. Think 10 hours or so. Start early.

Probably be way less stressful and would not take all day if you catch a ride on one of the shuttles (Tropical Tours or Interbus).

Thanks for your help. The shuttles said there were only private ones which were like joke prices. So in the end I've changed my plans! Again thanks for trying!

Jane - You've been looking in the wrong places!

I found two: One shuttle with www.easyridecr.com from Flamingo to Santa Teresa leaves at 8:30 am and is $65. The other with www.anywherecostarica.com leaves Flamingo at 8:15 am and is $55.
