Options for getting to/from Puerto Viejo from San Jose, Arenal and Bocas del Toro
Getting to the Puerto Viejo area is pretty easy. There are a number of different options for getting here. Most people come here from San Jose so we'll cover those options first:
The bus is the most economical option and is very inexpensive. Five daily directo buses leave from San Jose.
Shared Ride Van Shuttles
Shared ride van services have door to door service from hotels and major points. They have several daily departures from San Jose, Arenal and Bocas del Toro to Puerto Viejo.
For shuttle transport to/from Bocas view our Bocas transport page.
You can also get a private transfer that will take you directly from San Jose Airport or any other location to Puerto Viejo at your schedule.
If you book a Rafting Trip they can pick you up in San Jose and leave you in Puerto Viejo at the end of the day (or vice-versa)! Kind of like getting your transportation for free. It also works to/from Arenal.
Driving from San José takes 4 to 5 hours (via the faster route) and there are two different routes possible. There is also information there about driving to/from Arenal or Tortuguero.
Puerto Viejo has no airport, but it is possible to fly to Limon, about 60 minutes north.
I have made every attempt to make sure this information is current and correct. But schedules do change as do road conditions and weather so please confirm information if it's important (e.g. you'll miss your flight). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any corrections or additional information that you think would be helpful.
