buses in Costa RicaTravelling Costa Rica By Bus

In Costa Rica, there is a very good public transport network. This consists primarily of buses and minibuses, the majority of the major destinations in the country is connected to each other. There also are large and modern intercity buses, which are made for long-term travels.

At horariodebuses.com you can get a very accurate overview of buses, departure times, travel times and routes. They try their best to keep the site updated, but there is complete guarantee that everything runs on time. Some customers have reported that the schedules are deviated, but this is not very surprising for everyone that knows Costa Rica well.

If you are travelling short distances and regional services, the buses will most likely be older and smaller. The travel time is longer, because they often stop at several places.

The best recommendation have the Interbuses in Costa Rica. They will pick you up at a fixed time at the hotel and will take you to your next destination. But they are also more expensive


There is no train service for long-distance rides in Costa Rica. The railway from central valley to Puerto Limón is out of service, but there is a train through the western suburbs of San José.

In addition, also as a touristic attraction, there is the Tico Train. Here you can experience the historic Costa Rica. Based off German railway wagons of the forties, you will have spectacular views of green fields, small villages and varied landscapes.

School Transport

In addition to the public transport system, there are still a lot of school buses and school transportation (table on the right side) that take care of the students of Costa Rica. As a tourist, you will usually have no access to this kind of transport.

Gray Line & Interbus

The system of Interbuses and buses from Gray Line is something unique in Costa Rica and works greatly.

There is a special bus system, set up for tourists who want to learn and see more of the country and get to know Costa Rica. The transport always takes place at a fixed time from hotel to hotel or from meeting point to hotel. Meeting places are those places where a tour starts or ends, crossing points for cross travelers, etc. Depending on the season and the popularity of the objective, there are around three departure times per day.

Depending on the distance of the transport, it costs $ 40 to $ 60. We, as a licensed agency will take care of the reservation and advise you on complex compounds. On some routes  there is no regular connection from Interbus or Gray Line, we (from alautentico) offer private alternatives that work perfectly in combination with the bus systems.
