Transportation from Osa to Arenal and hotel in SJ

Jump to last reply

In early May, my husband and I will be going from Arenal after a few days in Osa (Bosque del Cabo).

I was thinking of flying Puerto Jimenez/SJ/La Fortuna but we would end up with a 7 am flight from Puerto Jimenez and a 3+ hour layover in the airpot. Now I am thinking that a 10:15 flight from Puerto Jimenez and car transportation (driver, not a rental car) to our hotel in Arenal might be better. Any advice on that? Is it a scenic drive? Also, any recommendations on hiring private transportation and perhaps a rough estimate of the cost would be really helpful. A shared van would be fine too if they leave at a time that works with our schedule. From my limited research so far though, it looks like they tend to leave later in the afternoon.

My second question is about lodging in San Jose. We get in late our first night in CR and then leave on a flight for Osa the next day. Any suggestions for a good hotel near the airport from which our SJ to Puerto Jimenez Nature flight leaves? It does not need to be upscale, just clean and convenient. If they have a shuttle to the airport, that would be great.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. This board has been very helpful during our planning.
