Public Transportation

Direct Bus. This service is run by Transporte Cobano and from my opinion if you want to budget your journey this service is excellent. It cost about 15$ or 7520.00 Colones and it runs only once a day. The facebook page gives you all the updated information and you can book it directly from la terminal web site: https://www.laterminalcostarica.com. 

There are two pick ups, the main one is in San Jose city terminal 7-10 or direct from the airport you can go to the parada autobús Puente Villa Bonita. The bus takes around 20/30 minute from the scheduled city center time to get here. 

The price includes the cost of the ferry and you do not need to carry your luggage while on the ferry. Just make sure to keep the receipt to get on the bus again once you are in Paquera. 

The Bus is then stopping in Cobano as its end of the journey, but another public bus is going to be there to take you to Santa Teresa. Price is around 2$.

Shuttle Services

Share shuttle are a quite common option among travelers and nowday there are many companies offering this service. Most of them have an airport pick up or hotel pick up and drop off. The route is the same: from San Jose to Puntarenas , Ferry boat to Paquera and then playa Santa Teresa. But once in the ferry you have to pick up your lagguages and get to the ferry alone, once in Paquera there will be another shuttle waiting for you. Price goes from 35$ to 50$ depending of the season. 

Private Shuttles: Can be quite expensive but offering more comfort and flexibility. 

Car Rental

Renting a car gives you total freedom and flexibility to explore at your own pace. From San José the drive takes about 5-6 hours, including a picturesque ferry crossing. From Liberia: A 4-5 hour drive without the need for a ferry.

if this is your option best thing is to buy the ferry ticket on-line as not to risk to wait hours the next available one. 

We can recommend reliable car rental services and provide detailed driving directions.
