If you don’t have a car to get to the park, we can provide a shuttle service from your Monteverde Hotel/Airbnb to the park and back to your Hotel/Airbnb for an extra fee. Our shuttles are large vans with A/C, and they pick up/drop off multiple customers simultaneously.
We have specific pickup times depending on your location, so after you book online, you will first receive your confirmation email, and then (a few hours later), you will get a follow-up email with the pickup time at your Hotel/Airbnb.
On the way back from the park to your Hotel/Airbnb, our shuttles also leave the park at specific times (usually every hour), so you may need to wait at the park’s reception for a while after you finish your activity. We work like this to minimize the number of cars on the road to keep up with our gas emissions target to remain a sustainable park.
Please note that some Hotel/Airbnb locations are advertised as part of Monteverde when far away from town. And they might be outside our service area. If that is your case, we will let you know via a follow-up email so that we can try to find a solution for you or cancel your reservation with a full refund.
