How to get to Manuel Antonio, Quepos.

Remember that our preferred method is to meet you at the airport and to arrange transportation directly to Manuel Antonio. But of course, if your travel plans don't allow for that, or if you desire to strike out on your own...
It is easy to get to Manuel Antonio from San José.  There are direct buses which leave the "Coca-Cola" bus station (all taxis know how to get there) from San José four times daily, 6:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 6:00 PM, and 7:30 PM.; the cost is about $5.00 U.S.  The trip is very enjoyable and lasts 3 hours. 

You could also rent a car, although rent-a-cars are very expensive here. A couple of car rental companies are:
