Some sites show that the trip time on the San Jose - Manuel Antonio bus takes about an hour less than taking the San Jose - Jaco bus for just about a USD $1 more.
It looks like there is a 9am bus out of the Coca Cola Station in San Jose for both routes.
Besides it taking less time, is there anything else about the San Jose - Manuel Antonio bus that I need to know about or take into account?
For example, does that SJ/MA bus drop off on the outskirts of Jaco versus the SJ/Jaco bus so I might have more difficulty getting a taxi to take me to my accommodation?
Is the San Jose - Manuel Antonio bus more crowded or require advance booking than the San Jose - Jaco bus?
Thanks for any advice/insight you can offer.
