Comfortable Private Van Services in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama

Are you traveling to Costa Rica and looking for a private van service that fits your itinerary? Or, perhaps you have several people in your group, and you want to enjoy a Costa Rica private tours experience to avoid an overcrowded bus, a shared shuttle, or a Costa Rica taxi with not so perfect standards. Maybe you even want to stop at a few sites along the way to your hotel. If these options sound appealing to you, Costa Rica private transportation – instead of a taxi through Costa Rica – is the ideal match for you. That way you can create your own mix of best places to see in Costa Rica.

For bookings, please use our transport planner below. If you want more detailed information on our service first, please scroll down.

By hiring a private driver in Costa Rica, you will be able to make several stops during your private tour through Costa Rica to take pictures of tourist attractions, enjoy local foods, and walk around to enjoy beautiful scenery as you’re getting around Costa Rica. Our services will be able to accommodate to your schedule and preferences. Private shuttles in Costa Rica – as opposed to a typical taxi at San José airport – also have the advantage of space, as we can transport a large amount of luggage or even pets. This luxury amenity isn’t offered on other bus or transport companies, so using our Costa Rica private transportation would be a perfect solution for those who like to travel with their family dog.

Gecko Trail Costa Rica uses several reliable companies all over the country and has been working with them for several years. They are equipped with all the necessary permits required for your trip, unlike the private drivers that wait at the airport competing with a San José airport taxi. Typically, your Costa Rica private drivers are not fluent in English, so we recommend learning a few common Spanish phrases before your trip. Alternatively, you could communicate with universal gestures as much as possible. If an English speaking driver is a must, please let us know and we are more than happy to book your trip accordingly as we want you to have the best traveling experience possible. We will organize you a reliable Costa Rica private shuttle, that will be on time as opposed to a taxi to San José airport.

Each of our private drivers in Costa Rica is professional and accommodating to ensure a relaxing road trip. Whether traveling from San José to Liberia or from Monteverde to Tamarindo, each route has a set rate, which makes it easy to plan as you know what to expect upfront. Private transportation in Costa Rica will drive you in comfortable air-conditioned vans, minibuses or even full-sized buses if you have a large group. This will be more comfortable than the average airport taxi in San José. We are also happy to quote prices for a longer stop along routes like San Jose to Puerto Viejo, in case you want to add a tour along the way. You can also include a stop for a meal or walking break as well so that your ride doesn’t get too lengthy or tedious. Your Costa Rica private driver will strive to make your customized ride enjoyable and comfortable!

If you want to immediately step off the plane and head straight to the coast, a private shuttle in Costa Rica is often your best option. Your Costa Rica driver will be waiting for you after immigration with a sign with your name on it and will lead your group to your private van. You’ll get to feel like a VIP from the moment you start your big vacation. You’ll enjoy a stress-free ride to your hotel destination!
