Manuel Antonio to SJO Airport by local bus

Anybody know the best bus route to get from Manuel Antonio to SJO Airport? Do they drop you off AT the airport, or would I need to take a taxi from the bus station to the airport? Thanks for the help!

1. Re: Manuel Antonio to SJO Airport by local bus

The easiest and cheapest way to get to SJO by bus is to,take the "colectivo" as opposed to the "directo" bus from Quepos. It stops right in from of the airport. Just tell the driver when you give him your luggage to,stow that you want the aeropuerto and he will put it in a place where it can be easily gotten. It does take longer than the directo. But by the time you factor in the extra time backtracking into,San Jose and back and the more than $20 cab fare, it is a good option. We often do it.

The directo takes the new road and does not pass the airport area.

The current fare is equivalent to about $9 US.

Shared shuttles like interbus and grayline are another option if you do not want to take the public bus. Enjoy!
