Getting Around

Although you may wish for some motorized transportation in this heat, in Monterrico it is all about the feet. The key is to walk slowly. Bicycles are available for hire at Café del Sol for $6 half a day or $10 the whole day.The business next to the internet shop rents out quad bikes but at $25 for an hour, they are unlikely to be practical for long term use.

Microbuses leave from the west junction for Puerto Viejo and Iztapa every 20 minutes, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. ($1.20 for the hour's drive). From here, camionetas ($0.25) and microbuses ($1.20) depart for the half-hour ride to Puerto San José.

Microbuses to Parque Hawaii depart from the Hawaii junction (east) in Monterrico, and from Parque Hawaii, at 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. An additional microbus leaves Monterrico at 4 p.m. The microbuses drive around for a long time to pick up passengers and might not actually leave until 45 minutes after the scheduled departure time. The cost is $0.90. Otherwise, it is common to hitch-hike along the road and pay the driver a few quetzales.
