You can shuttle it to Monteverde, which can be complicated, but do-able. Or, you can hire a cab, or take a public bus, which will take the longest.
Of course, all of this is depending on ferry schedules, road construction, car accidents etc, which can slow down your day. But, that is all part of the adventure. It could take all day, or it could take 4 hours. You just have to decide the mode of transport, the route and hope for the best! This is Costa Rica, you are on an adventure, go with the flow and you will get there.
Bus to Puntarenas...ferry...bus to Mal Pais...if every thing is moving...around 7 hours...
