bus from airport or Alajuela to Sarapiqui?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a bus that leaves from the airport or nearby to Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui. My flight leaves NYC at 5:15 AM, arriving at SJO at 9:30 AM, so that will definitely give me enough time to travel by bus the same day. Worst case scenario, I will take a taxi to the bus terminal in San Jose but would love to avoid that if possible. Thanks!

Use this helpful link http://thebusschedule.com/cr/index.php

Bus stops (first one) right outside the airport. Exit the terminal, turn left, ignore the taxi Dudes, veer to the right, stop is about 50 ft to the right of the corner.

Look for a Tuasa bus.

Thanks Cajon. If I understand correctly, that will get me to San Jose where I will have to change buses. From the link it seems like there is no direct option.

If you can, explain to the driver (when you get on at the airport..."Parada de bus del Caribe"..(or Caribbean..)..he should tell you where to get off, but the more downtown you are, the better, as the taxi ride will be less.
