A hassle-free alternative to the bus, shared ride shuttle services are operated by Interbus, Grayline and other companies in Costa Rica. These include pickup and dropoff at most hotels so you don’t need to find a bus terminal. They also can be purchased online and must be booked in advance. Service is provided in comfortable air-conditioned minibuses or vans. Gecko Trail Adventures can book you on any of the shuttle companies so you get the service and schedule that matches your needs.
