These transfers are made in air-conditioned minivans with a minimum of 2 persons and they depart at scheduled hours. The final pick up times will be given to the passengers upon their arrival to the country. From SJO to the different destinations, the pick up times are in the morning between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. From the different destinations back to SJO, the pick up times are between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. The passengers are requested to be on time since other passengers are also using the shuttle transportation. These transfers are made directly to the destination. There would be a stop if use of restrooms is required or two stops in some connections between routes, otherwise transfers will be directly to the hotel. ( Smoking is not allowed in the van )
Besides the public transportation the shuttle bus service is the most comfortable and inexpensive way of traveling in Costa Rica. A shuttle bus transfer service will pick up and drop off people in many different hotels on departure or on arrival. This pick ups and drop offs might make the trip to your final destination longer than usual.

If you have more than 2 passengers you might want to ask for a private transfer. The are routes that are offering daily 2 different departures, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
