Guápiles

Getting Here and Around

Guápiles lies just north of Braulio Carrillo National Park and straddles the highway to the Caribbean. It's an easy one-hour drive from San José just 60 km (38 miles) to the southwest, or Limón 84 km (50 miles) to the east. Empresarios Guapileños buses connect San José's Gran Terminal del Caribe with Guápiles every hour from early morning until late evening, and provide service seven times daily to Guácimo. San José's bus terminals are in sketchy neighborhoods so take care if this is your mode of transport.
