Getting here

Traveling from Juan Santamaria International Airport (San Jose Airport – SJO) The beach town of Manuel Antonio is a wonderful seaside town located on the Pacific side and is just a 2.5 hour Drive from Costa Rica’s San Jose International Airport. Best Time To Drive: The ideal time to drive into Manuel Antonio is during the day. It’s a wonderful way for everyone to see the countryside. A great stop to use the restroom, stretch and see your first real taste of Costa Rican wildlife is the Rio Tarcoles bridge a.k.a. The Croc Bridge. Everyone gets a kick out of it. There are several great restaurants around the halfway point on the way to Vista Hermosa Estate. Shuttles: Shuttles are the most popular option. Depending on the size of your group, rates start at about $25 per person each way and can go as high as $40 for smaller groups. A shuttle ride is about a 2.5 – 3 hour ride. The Shuttle driver will wait at the airport exit holding a sign with your name. A shuttle will be reserved with plenty of room for your group and everyone’s luggage. We only hire shuttle companies that have late model airconditioned shuttles, very comfy. Rent A Car: If you are interested in exploring the area, a car is a great option. The drive time from San Jose is only about 2.5 hours. In recent years, Costa Rica has considerably improved the route from the capital to the central Pacific, so you’ll enjoy smooth travel along paved highways.
