Getting here By Bus
The public buses in Costa Rica are actually efficient, safe, and incredibly inexpensive. A one way ticket to
Monteverde from San Jose costs about $7.50. You can even bring you surfboard on the bus for an extra $2.00.
The seats recline and are actually pretty comfortable. However, sometimes the buses can be crowded. You
cannot buy tickets for the bus in advance; you have to physically buy them at the bus station. Buses leave for
Monteverde twice daily; one at 6:30 am, and the other at 2:30 pm. The trip takes about four and a half hours,
and the bus does stop for about 15 minutes at a restaurant in the city Sarmientos, which is a little over halfway
Bus Schedule: San Jose-Monteverde-San Jose departure at 06:30 am and 14:30pm Ticket prices: $4.00 per
By Car Rental
Your other option is to drive. First of all, make sure you rent a four wheel drive vehicle. Most of the roads to
Monteverde are dirt, and there are many potholes along the way. If it is the rainy season, the drive to
Monteverde can be especially tedious, and you will not be able to get to the cloud reserve at all unless you
are driving a 4×4 vehicle. From San Jose, you take Highway 1 north and then take the Sardinal exit. Part of the
route going past Sardinal and up the mountain is paved, making driving conditions easier. You will pass
through Guacimal, and then you will reach Santa Elena. This trip will take about four and a half hours, and
you will drive 105 miles.
