BEST WAY TO GET AROUND IN COSTA RICA

Jump to last reply

Okay so I have been to Costa Rica a handful of times and have tried different ways of transportation. By far I prefer to HIRE A DRIVER for all transfers. After a long flight there is nothing better than having a great driver waiting for you when you come out of the airport holding a sign with your name on it. (one less thing to think about and speak spanglish for.

I found the best driver who lives in La Fortuna but drives all over CR

he speaks perfect English and is a very safe driver

he is also a wonderful guide and got us great discounts when we booked tours and

showed us the local spots for free. I snagged his name off tripadvisor because he was

mentioned several times.

If you want to save time and the headache of getting lost on unmarked rough roads I would strongly recommend a driver over renting a car or a long bus ride. Or if you are traveling alone, with kids or are a senior FOR SURE.

PS my fav places are Arenal, Monteverde, Montezuma, Malpais and Samara.
PURA VIDA!
