Land shuttles depart daily at 6 AM (and 2 PM in high season) from SJO and take up to 6 hours to arrive to Santa Teresa. The one way trip costs USD 60.  It takes 2 hours to arrive to the port of Puntarenas, where you will take a 2 hours ferry trip to Paquera, and from there 2 more hours to Santa Teresa. In case you need to stay overnight in SJO we offer accommodation and breakfast with the one way shuttle service for USD 105.

IMPORTANT

Before booking make sure you have planned your logistics from your arrival airport to Santa Teresa. Avoid misunderstanding and incurring in costs that you can avoid if you plan accordingly. 

Plan your arrival flight as early as possible, in order to make it to the land shuttles or local flights. Otherwise it may be necessary to schedule a night in SJO, as there are no shuttles nor flights during the evening (i.e. after 3 pm). Similarly, your departure flight should be planned the latest you can in your departing day so that you can leave your hotel in Santa Teresa early in the morning and arrive early in the afternoon to SJO for your international flight. Otherwise you should plan your last night in San Jose and not in Santa Teresa.
