Taxis Unidos the ORANGE official taxis at Juan Santamaria International Airport, will charge $90.00 per two passengers two pieces of luggage!!

About $125.00(price as a reference NOT a quote)if you hire a private transfer...but remember...you get what you pay for!!

We used Transporte Perez Jiminz for our ride from the airport. Luis Perez was our driver/owner of the co.

Also look to him for Canopy tours, MA National Park, white water rafting etc.

I'm sorry, but offhand I can't remember how much it was.

For a solo trip you can take the shuttle from Interbus or grayline, they only charge $35 and is a easy 2 hours ride. NATUREGUIDE

Actually, according to Interbus's website - it is only $25.00 to Jaco, Grayline shows $27.00. Its $35 to MA.

graylinecostarica.com/graylinetouristbus.html

The only thing about scheduled shuttles like Interbus and Grayline is that they only have a couple of departures a day (interbus shows 8.45 AM and 3 PM) And these may or may not fit well with your arrival time. You have to get to a place across the street - Hampton Hotel or Green Turtle Souvenir shop. (On the Interbus site use San Jose Rio Segundo Alajuela as the origin)

The public buses don't stop at the airport, so you'd have to get downtown to the Coca Cola bus station. The cab ride down there is about $20.00. So for one person its really not much benefit. You can take a public bus from in front of the airport area to downtown San Jose and then walk a few blocks... However with luggage and not knowing where you are going this become a hassle.

Good luck

Day Star properties provides a private van for Airport pickup and transfer to one of their properties in Jaco. We paid $100 for a family of 4.
