Understand

Get in

Cruise ships call; ferries from Playa Naranjo and Paquera in the Nicoya peninsula; buses from San Jose, Quepos, Monteverde.

Get around

Local buses leave from downtown and are relatively inexpensive. For travel to places outside of Puntarenas (ie, Jaco, Manuel Antonio, etc) there's a main bus station. Buses are usually on time and sometimes even leave early, so plan accordingly. Don't be surprised to see vendors on buses selling snacks and drinks.

Taxis are easily accessible and can be flagged down in the street, or you can call ahead to schedule a pick up.

Most locals ride bikes or walk. Just make sure you keep your bike locked.
