TRANSPORTATION:

You have 4 options: Costa Rica domestic flight, rent a car, take the bus or taxis or simply walk.

Hitchhicking is too dangerous.

For southern Costa Rica, you can visit Southern Costa Rica Biz to have bus schedules or to check more options (rent a car, taxis, charter, etc.)

There’s a lot of taxis in Costa Rica. I suggest you to take only the officials ones.
At the airport, they are orange. In some other cities, they could be red. Just look for company’s name on the cab. Taxis are also affordables.

-Walk: The cheapest way to travel for sure! It’s also the best way to discover the real Costa Rica. When you walk, you have time to watch around you and for sure, you’ll discover special thing, see animals, plants, insects, etc.
