Getting Around Costa Rica
One of the most important aspects allowing you to take advantage of your time while visiting Costa Rica is choosing your form of local transportation. The following is a small summary of the different ways you can get around the country.
Types of Transportation
Due to the short distances between most destinations and the flexibility that it offers, many clients prefer to rent a car. This allows you to plan your traveling schedule on your own time and come and go at your leisure. We work with the most reliable and experienced car rental agency in Costa Rica, making it a simple process. Moreover, we offer in-country customer service to our clients to ensure that in the event of any problem, we can give you immediate assistance.

If, however, you do not wish to rent a car, perhaps combine your car rental with another type of transportation to better take advantage of your time. The shuttle vans can pick you up from any destination in the country and take you anywhere you wish to go. Many surfers opt to have a van take them to their first destination to avoid the drive from the airport and then pick up their rental car at that destination. This is another way to manage your time wisely.

Finally, there are small runways scattered throughout the country at some of the most visited destinations. Some of these include: Tamarindo, Nosara, Tambor, Quepos and Puerto Jimenez. These flights are generally made on Cessna planes for up to 12 passengers and certainly offer a faster method of traveling from one destination to another. However, be aware that almost all flights come and go through the airport in San José, therefore, it is a great option to get from San José to another destination but not from one alternate destination to another, as you will have to fly back to San José first. Many clients opt to fly to their destination and then pick up their rental car for use in the area and then fly back on the local flight.
