Pick Up and Drop Off Points

While because of the rafting this tour only begins from San Jose, we’ll drop you off after your time in Tortuguero at hotels in any of the following areas, so that you can work this package into the flow of your Costa Rica itinerary.

  • San Jose (4 hour van, 1 hour boat)
    Click here for pick up and drop off points in San Jose.
  • Arenal Volcano Region (4.5-5 hour van, 1 hour boat)
  • Sarapiqui (2 hour van, 1 hour boat)
  • Puerto Viejo or Cahuita (4 hour van, 1 hour boat)

From San Jose we offer only ground transportation, a combination of van and boat due to the rafting tour of the first day.

Van transfers from San Jose are with Costa Rica Expeditions. Transfers to Arenal, Sarapiqui and Puerto Viejo/Cahuita are with shuttle transportation companies that normally pick-up and drop off at several hotels before embarking on the journey. They use a hub system, so you may change to a vehicle specific to your destination halfway through the trip. The driver will be Spanish speaking, and it’s important to keep in mind that this transfer will not be accompanied by sightseeing or wildlife stops. We offer private transfers with our vans and drivers at considerable additional cost. Let us know if you want a quote.

IMPORTANT: If you’re not sure about your itinerary yet, please don’t hesitate to bring questions to our reservations staff. They’ll be happy to let you know logistics, and tell you which hotels are visited by shuttles.
