Airport pickup and bus ticket (Costa Rica)

Our taxi and bus service works like this:

• In advance, our driver purchases your bus tickets for the bus you specify to your destination so you know you'll get a ticket for the departure you want.
• The driver meets you at the airport as you are exiting customs from your incoming flight and brings you directly to the correct bus station in San Jose (there are numerous bus stations in San José depending on your destination)

If you're spending the night in San Jose, this service works too. We'll pre-purchase your bus tickets and pick you up at your San Jose area hotel and bring you to the correct bus terminal. 

The bus ticket and the taxi ride from the airport are included for one low price. Prices quoted are valid for airport pickups, for San Jose hotels and for some Alajuela hotels depending on location. Other locations may require a surcharge.

Tip for Caribbean Buses!
• the bus at 12noon continues on to Manzanillo and makes stops enroute at Playa Cocles, Chiquita, Punta Uva. The other buses come only into Puerto Viejo and then turn around and continue to Sixaola.

For groups of 3 or more, microbus transport is used instead of taxi for greater comfort.

Dropoff is at the bus stations of your destination city, often within easy walking distance of area hotels or where you can find a taxi.

We recommend you allow at least 2 hours to get your baggage, clear customs and get from the airport in Alajuela to the bus terminal in San Jose. If your flight is late or you are delayed for other reasons and you miss your scheduled bus, you will need to buy a ticket for the next bus. The ticket we have purchased for you is non-refundable.   If you are aiming for the final bus of the day, you will likely need to stay in San Jose for the night in that case.
