Thanks guys for your invaluable advice and suggestions. Let me check with above possibilities.
I am not sure if I will waste valuable time by travelling between two places. But I strongly feel the best option will be to hire a private shuttle.
By the way, does one know a best bird guide a vehicle at San Gerardo De Dota. You may PM me.
You will need to spend the first night at a hotel closer to SJO, then go there. One option is to prepay Caribeshuttle-a shared van at 5 am, will pick you up from your hotel: https:/…schedules-daily-shuttles . $70, estimated travel time 7 hrs.Edited: 23 January 2018, 21:06
You have been so helpful. Other than the border stop, does this shuttle take you directly there?
