I notice for a lot of popular destinations throughout Costa Rica, there's a bus that leaves from San Jose about 6 AM and then another around 2 PM. But is it actually safe to travel to the Coca-Cola bus stations that early in the morning? I live in Curridabat, so it'd be fairly safe to take a bus into San Jose around 5 AM.. but once I get there and it's still pitch dark, are all of the thieves in bed by then? Or should I basically just take a taxi to the bus station once I get off the bus in San Jose?
I understand that I need to practice safe caution at all times, but still.. having a bus leave at 6 AM just seems a little dangerous, are there enough people that actually take these 6 AM buses?
