There are several ways to get here…

Driving, Taking a Cab, or Bus to Our House

Casa Bosque Verde is a 10 minute drive from the Quepos Airport or a 5 minute taxi ride from the centre of Quepos and about a 3 minute taxi ride from the National Park.  Local buses run about every 30 minutes along the only road between Quepos and the National Park and bus stops, “paradas” are located all along the main road in Manuel Antonio.

Driving to Manuel Antonio from International Airports

Manuel Antonio is about a two hour drive via the toll highway from the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in Alajuela near San José.  It is a four to five hour drive from the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (LIB) in Liberia.

All major North American car rental agencies operate in Costa Rica, most of whom have an office in Quepos as well as at the international airports.  Car rental agencies generally charge a drop-off fee if dropping the car at a location other than where it was rented.

Hiring a Private Car to Manuel Antonio

Our concierge service can arrange to have a driver pick you up from anywhere in Costa Rica, Panamá, or Nicaragua and take you directly to Casa Bosque Verde.  They will charge you directly for this service.

Another option is using a shuttle service which provides door to door service from many tourist locations in Costa Rica. Interbus operates a fleet of comfortable air-conditioned vans that run between major towns…see:
