I'm coming to Costa Rica on Nov 26 and would like some information so that I can make this trip stress and hassel free. I hope you can help.
1- I'm thinking of taking the bus (www.thebusschedule.com/cr/) from hotel los volcanes - alajuela to La Fortuna (arenal backpackers resort). How much do you think that'll cost me as I couldn't see the cost online for some reason or maybe I was looking in the wrong area. Also, are the buses on time or are they usually late because I have to get to La Fortuna by 11am to 12pm most definitely.
- I see the schedule here but not sure where the cost is: http://www.thebusschedule.com/cr/index.php
- I contacted the hostel's shuttle service and they're charging me for pick-up and drop for $40 (will take approx. 3 hours) so I'm debating if that's a good deal or should I just take the bus? Can you please advise?
2- I will be traveling from La Fortuna to Esterillos Este on Nov 30. I found out that it'll be a 6 hour drive (bus or shuttle) from La Fontuna. Here is my destination so that you have a better
- If I don't want to take the bus/shuttle because it will take 6 hours, do you think it'll be much easier and convenient to go there by air from La Fortuna or go by private shuttle?
- If its private shuttle, then I can ask the resort to reserve me one. However, if flying from la fortuna to get to Esterillos Este is better, which airport would I land on in Esterillos Este?
I would highly appreciate if you can help me answer the above questions as it would really help me plan my trip better.
Thank you so much!Edited: 07 November 2013, 21:20
