Further Information

Travel tips: How to get there:


Travel to the to the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area is easy and can be done in a couple of different ways. There are 2 Airlines with regularly scheduled daily flights from San Jose to Quepos airport - Sansa and Nature Air..

It is also a picturesque three and a half hour drive by car, depending on weather and traffic.

There are direct buses that leave from the Coca Cola bus terminal in San José three times a day.. There are also indirect buses, but this drive takes at least four and half hours as the bus stops frequently.


By Bus

The Quepos bus leave from San Jose at the main Coca Cola bus terminal. As you know Coca Cola is the pickpocket capital of Costa Rica. It is important to keep you eyes on your things at all times. Accross to where the buses line up along the back wall, is a small farmers market. The office for the bus company is inside this market in the northwest corner. It is recommended to buy your ticket in advanceas buses fill up and the cost is around $5. If you are planning on traveling on either Friday or Sunday, it is important to buy your ticket well in advance, so that you will be able to get a seat. Buses leave San Jose daily at 6:00 am, 12:00 and 6:00 pm.


To travel from Quepos' main terminal to Manuel Antonio and the national park, a bus departs every half hour from 5:00 a.m. till 10:00 p.m. and is less than $0.25US


Transportes Morales company. Tel. 223-5567



Take the Pan-American Highway north from San Jose till you reach the turn off to Puerto Caldera and Puntarenas. Exit to your right, cross over the highway and proceed west toward the coast.

The drive will take you through the mountains until you reach the Pacific coast. From there follow the signs to Jaco and Quepos. You will reach Jaco beach in about two hours. No need to go into the town, just continue on down the coast road to the south. From Jaco it is straight south, but the road is not always in very good shape with potholes literally everywhere.


When you reach Quepos, continue into town across the last bridge and turn left on Avenida Central. This will take you into the centre of the town where you will also find the main bus terminal . There are several reasonably priced places to stay and lots of bars and restaurants. If you want to continue on into Manuel Antonio, continue down Avenida Central for the next two blocks, till you pass the main bus terminal. At the next stop sign turn right, go down the one block to the next street and turn left. This road will take you all the way down to the national park where it ends. The drive is about a four miles long through twisting and turning roads that have wonderful views of the coast.



Sansa flies out of a small terminal beside the main international airport and Nature Air flies out of the smaller Pavas airport about 20 minutes away. It costs around $53 each way with either airline and takes 25 minutes.

The Sansa terminal is about 100 meters north of the main international airport.

If you are flying into the main airport and are trying to make a connecting flight to Quepos, you will need to exit the main terminal after going through customs and immigration. If you have a lot of baggage, you can take a cab and ask the driver to take you to the Sansa terminal, the cost will be about a dollar. It is not far but it might be just a lot easier. If you would like to walk, go to your left outside the arrivals door and to the main road in front of the airport where the buses stop. Walk up the street to your left. Walk for about two minutes and you will get to a parking lot on your left and at the far end will be the Sansa terminal. You can buy your ticket here at the counter if you have not bought it ahead on-line (recommneded in high season).
