  1. The fastest way
  2. The cheapest way

The Fastest Way

If you value speed over savings, you’ll want to take a Domestic Flight from San Jose to Tambor, followed by a Taxi from Tambor to Santa Teresa. This way will cost you around $185 in total.

Domestic flight
Book a domestic flight by Costa Rica Green Airways. They are reliable, have great customer service, plus they offer free beer and water upon boarding.

Duration: 25 minutes
Cost: $135


Taxi from Tambor to Santa Teresa
You’ll also want to book a taxi from Tambor to Santa Teresa. Once you’ve arrived at the Tambor Airport, the Taxi driver will wait for you as you arrive. I rely on Pantera Transportation, they’ve never let me down.

Duration: 45 minutes
Cost: $60

By Shuttle

Book a shuttle from San Jose to Santa Teresa. The shuttle will be boarding the ferry, which is a little over an hour sail. The shuttle will drop you off at your accommodation in Santa Teresa.

Duration: 4-5 hours
