Transportation in Costa Rica

Hi - 4 of us are traveling to Costa Rica in August. We are looking for ground transportation between the following places over the course of 9 days:

Libera airport - Tamarindo (July 30th)

Tamarindo - Arenal (Aug 2)

Arenal - Manuel Antonio (Aug 4)

Manuel Antonio - San Jose airport (Aug 7)

We do not want to rent a car. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced and reliable driver/shuttle service/tax service etc. It would be much appreciated.

on some of those routes you can go by group shuttle for as little as $29/pp (or $116/day for your group). You'll have to leave by their schedule and you won't be able to just stop anywhere you want along the way, but that might not be that big a deal depending on your plans.

We got back fro CR a few weeks ago and had a fantastic driver.

His name is Leo Rodriguez. He is fluent in English and is extremely knowledgeable re: anything to do with his country. His prices were reasonable, he was a very reliable (punctual) and safe driver. We loved him and highly recommend him.

You can reach him at
