The best value would be the public bus (3hrs), which runs a few times a day between downtown San Jose and Jaco for less than $5. If it's not full you can intercept it just outside the airport entrance, otherwise you need to taxi to the main bus station in downtown San Jose to get it.

After that, you have tourist shuttles that leave on fixed schedules (interbusonline.com, graylinecostarica.com, easyridecr.com, etc.) that will take you door-to-door for $20-30 -- but if there are three or more of you at that point it pays to just get a private taxi.

If you go by public transport, you'll need immediate access to Colones, but at the airport get them only from the ATM there (ask for it at the airport). The exchange booth is a ripoff.
