SHARE – RIDE SHUTTLES
Shared-ride shuttles provide connections between most major tourist destinations – including to and from the country’s airports. The country’s main carriers are Grayline, Costa Rica Ride and Interbus. Shared-ride shuttles are faster, more convenient and more luxurious than buses but that comes at a cost. Shared-ride shuttles cost between $45 and $100 per person with discounts for larger groups.
FAMILIES, COUPLES & BACKPAKERS
Families, couples and backpackers will find shared-ride shuttles helpful for a quick way to get from A to B, ideal for travelling on a tight schedule. Shared-ride shuttles have A/C, more leg room than buses do and offer a little more security for your belongings. They are also a good way to meet other travelers headed to the same destination.

Costa Rica’s public bus system is often toted as the best in Central America with routes that encompass the entire country. It’s a cheap, effective way to get around within and between destinations and is the best choice for backpackers, couples and small groups travelling on a tight budget.
Most inter-city buses have A/C and some put on movies. You can store your luggage underneath the bus or put it in overhead bins. Make sure you get a ticket for your luggage if you put underneath the bus though, that will help prevent it from getting stolen – an infrequent but possible dilemma.
Every city has at least one central bus station while San Jose has multiple, so make sure to find out which bus station your bus leaves from. Once you’re at the station, finding your bus can be challenging. Oftentimes, the signs (which are in Spanish) don’t necessarily match the destination of the bus underneath them. However, most employees and drivers are friendly and will help you find the right bus.

There’s a freedom to renting a car unmatched by all the other transportation options and it’s worth considering. The country’s highways are rife with natural beauty and there’s no better way to soak it in than renting a car and cruising with the windows down, stopping to take pictures and settling down at any roadside restaurant you just happen to come across. Car rentals are good for couples and families who want to see a lot of the country and don’t mind driving over the occasional pothole, dealing with aggressive drivers or getting lost on a side road trying to find your hotel.
Rentals cost between $32 and $160 a day.
