Hi, I'm going to Costa Rica for c.12 days in March next year, and am just planning my itinerary. I think I will be finishing my trip in Manuel Antonio, then travelling back to San Jose/Alajuela to fly home.
My flight home is at 11.35am on a Friday; do you think it would be too risky to plan to fly from MA that morning? I could get the 8.50am flight which would get me to SJO at about 9.20am, giving me just enough time to check in for my flight home. However, that doesn't leave any contingency for delays or anything! Would I be better flying or getting the bus to Alajuela/SJ the afternoon before, then I have plenty of time to get to the airport on my final day? If I'm going to do that, I'd like to leave MA as late as possible on the Thursday, does anyone know what transport option would be best for that? Public bus perhaps?
Thanks in advance!
