Public bus: Transporte Mepe

There is a direct bus to Manzanillo de Talamanca, leaving the terminal (Terminal de San Carlos o Atlantico Norte) in San Jose at 12:00 pm. It arrives here between 4:30 and 5:00 pm and costs about $12 p.p. Another possibility is to take the bus to Limón. There, you will find some more busses, that take you to Manzanillo (the last one leaves Limón at 6:00 pm). You could also take a bus to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and then take a taxi for the last 14 km. The taxi will cost you about $15.

We can organise an air conditioned shuttle to pick you up at the airport for $60 or your Hotel in San Jose for about $50 and drop you off at Casa Namasol (for other locations please ask).


Our favourite method to Manzanillo via San Jose or La Fortuna (Arenal Volcano) is an adventure white water rafting the Pacuare River. You will be picked up from your accommodation in San Jose or La Fortuna about 6am and taken to the exploration centre for a full buffet breakfast to ensure you have plenty of energy to enjoy a full day of rafting on National Geographic top 5 most scenic rivers in the world with adrenaline rapids up to class IV. With lunch included you will be dropped off at Casa Namasol in Manzanillo around 5:30pm. The transfer is complimentary with this tour and a great way to travel Costa Rica at $99 per person. Please let us know if you would like to reserve.

Rent a car

You can rent a car to travel around the country. At the airport you can find several companies. We recommend “Poas Rent a car” because they also have an office in Puerto Viejo. If you want to pick up the car, at the airport, it is better then to make a reservation before. Otherwise, once in Manzanillo, we can help you to rent a car. The company will bring it to our place. The price for a car rental is about $55 the day.
