Probably the best way is to take the international bus - Ticabus - from David and get off the bus in San Isidro de General and catch the local, public bus to Quepos by way of Dominical.

I don't think there is a regular Ticabus stop in San Isidro de General - just tell the driver you want to get off there.

www.thebusschedule.com/cr/ for public bus. Ticabus has an excellent website for more information on that part.

I have done the same trip that Hattie and roadadvisor have suggested.

The TicaBus stop in David is on the InterAmerican Highway, in front of the Novey home improvement store, and across the street from SuperBaru supermarket. Take this bus all the way to San Isidro and from there switch to a bus traveling to Dominical.

Enjoy,

Ballardo

Thank you guys. So do I have to buy a ticket in David to San Jose even if I get off in San Isidro?

From David you can take the Panama Express which uses the coastline highway and get off right in Quepos. I am sure Quepos isn´t a official stop but you can talk to the driver to let you off there. Good luck. NATUREGUIDE

Natureguide: Can you tell us a little more about this Panama Express? I can't find anything about it. What is the company name? Thanks.

This is the company. I see their buses everyday go by the Costanera.
