    Exceptional! Our driver was a pleasure. Also, so helpful and calming when there was a mix up at the airport. The 4 hour drive felt like 2. Thank you ILC

    We absolutely had the best time with our driver Jose (who ended up driving us to most of our locations). He is a pleasure to talk to and taught us so much about the country. He was always on time and willing to make stops along the way whenever we needed anything. A very down to earth and calming guy, we genuinely looked forward to seeing him!

    I came here to inquire about bus services to La Fortuna one day before my scheduled trip. I noted it to be clean and organized. It has some shops, small restaurants, and offices of various bus companies. It has public restrooms as well.

    The Security Guards at the Entrance Area are friendly and gave me the information I needed. There is only 1 direct bus per day that goes to La Fortuna. Tickets can be purchased from the bus driver himself for 3,940 colones per person. It leaves at 8:45 a.m, but the line for this trip starts forming at 8:00 am.

    Area near this Bus Station: Be careful here as there are many homeless people loitering here.

    After a long flight, I arrived at San Jose, and Walter was there to greet me. The van was comfortable, clean, and air conditioned. Walter offered me a bottle of water, and we were on our way to Jaco. The driving was excellent and after arriving, Walter insisted upon taking my bags right to the front door of my condo. I highly recommend this transport.

    Great communication and service. Reliable, responsive and very friendly.
    Our family drove from San José to Talamanca and were very happy with the driver and the car.
    Will definitely travel with them again.

    The Baqueano are life savers. After missing our flight from Guatemala to Panamá City and the first leg of our cruise. They truly came to our rescue in Costa Rica.

    I had reached out to them to get us from Sam Jose to Limón to catch up with our cruise ship. We had booked a flight to Sam Jose the next morning. They got back to us immediately and made the booking process really simple. Even making suggestions on places to stay in Limón and places to visit.

    Their driver Rafeal was at the airport when we got there. He would tell you his English was not good but he did incredibly well and with the help of Google translate showed us the sights of Costa Rica. He was simply amazing and honestly on a trip that had gone horribly wrong, set us on track to have a great experience. He got us to Limón and helped get us to our hotel. Even doing some translation work for us there.

    If you are ever in Costa Rica and need a car service for the day or to get to a destinations there could be no one better. They truly saved our vacation.

    David at Biotrans was great to work with from start to finish. All drivers were very safe drivers, knowledgeable, prompt and friendly. The prices were reasonable and I would recommend to all looking for transportation around Costa Rica.

    We used Tucan Limo for 3 different transfers during our time in Costa Rica—Samara to La Fortuna, La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio, and Manuel Antonio to SJO. Rosie was great to work with when we booked, and Emerson and Luis were our drivers. For each leg of our trip, they were on time, provided as smooth a ride as you can possibly expect on Costa Rican roads, and had fun music on the radio for us. We would definitely recommend!

    The best I can say is WOW! Not only did Johnny and Paul shuttle our large family around for the week, they always went above and beyond. Amazing tips on where to eat, where to visit, the best guides to use, plus so much more. Costa Rica is amazing place to visit and I can't imagine doing so without Jonny and Paul!

    Danny , thanks for everything ! Gerardo was fantastic. We all had a great visit and all agreed that it was the best decision to use a driver car service. I will be posting a review when I arrive home. Thank you again. I will refer my friends to you and your company. Best wishes. Great service and everything was planned out very well. Danny and his team made our visit enjoyable and stress free. .011-506-8854-5969

    Our cross-border transfer from Liberia airport to San Juan del Sur (SJDS ) with Shuttle Caribe was the best spent (US$100 for two adults). Collected on time by our driver at the airport, we were whisked away to Peñas Blancas—the border town. With Caribe’s drivers and Nicaraguan fixer at the border, we were in great hands. Our affable Nica driver, Rudy, also knew the manager of our Airbnb in SJDS and delivered us right to his office. So, we were handed from one person to the next (including checks by at least eight Tico/Nica officials at the border) and yet barely lifted a finger to negotiate the mess of border traffic that stretched for miles. Yes, you can spend much less money to spend much more time to make this journey. We appreciated the air conditioned comfort in modern vehicles, and our door-to-door trip was completed in less than three hours. All staff were super friendly and made us feel safe and happy in what can be a less pleasant experience. Thanks guys!

    We used EasyRide CR for a number of journeys on our holiday. The vehicles and drivers were a bit mixed but generally good.

    One time a driver forgot to pick someone up and added half an hour to the journey having to go back for them!

    They were easy to contact via whatsapp and unlike a lot of other companies did cover routes all over the country.
