DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. I booked a private transfer and although that was fine, the company charged my credit card 3 times for the service. After emailing repeatedly they refunded one of the fraudulent charges but not the other. Now they aren't even responding...More

This company will take you somewhere from x to x with no flexibility at reasonable prices on nice little shuttles / busses. We went from tamarindo to monterverde and eventually they accepted my credit card online for payment after a couple of days of emailing...More

Amazing day tour, the best part is Tabacon. The place is beyond beautiful and makes this trip a must do. The food offered for lunch and dinner was delicious and provided options for everyone's taste.

This is a really long day and depending on your body build the ride could be uncomfortable but it's probably the best way to do this if you're trying to pack a lot into just a few days. The ride is a solid three hours...More

I was a little hesitant about hiring this company because of the reviews, but it was a really good option. I traveled from La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio. The driver was very friendly and stopped two times to enjoy the view and the crocodiles!!

The shuttle prices are pretty consistent among companies. It's around 45 per person in shared vehicle. Taxi fare would run you close to 200.
