The shuttle bus and private transfer is quite convenient. Being the shared shuttle the least expensive option.

The alternative would be a domestic flight from SJO Airport to Arenal. Then a 35 min drive to Tabacon Resort.

Or a public bus from San Jose to Ciudad Quesada and then another bus from Ciudad Quesada to La Fortuna + local cab to Tabacon. (5 hours including waiting time/switch buses)

The second option is not recommended as it takes much longer and you could end up paying about the same cost of a shared shuttle. If you have a late arrival the best would be private transportation.

If the set daily times suit you, the shared shuttle for about US$54 pp does not seem like such a bad deal, IMHO, especially if you are 1-2 travellers. https://www.interbusonline.com/rates.php
