Excellent Shuttle! San Jose to Monteverde Shuttle

The shuttle picked me up at Mango Hotel, nearby the SJO Airport, at around 8 am, and I arrived in Monteverde before 1 pm. I did not have to worry about renting a car and driving on the narrow and crazy road to Monteverde. I highly recommend it.

Affordable Transportation San Jose to Monteverde Shuttle

Traveling from San Jose to Monteverde on a shuttle is the best way to go. I made a mistake and came into Monteverde via the San Jose Public Bus. It was hot, hectic, busy, noisy, and not clean. Don't use the bus unless you can't afford the shuttle.
