OverviewGetting from Santamaria Airport to your destination: When making transportation arrangements, refer to your region of choice: Costa Rica regions include Alajuela, Cartago, Guanacste, Heredia, Limon, North Puntarenas, South Puntarenas, San Jose.
Licensed taxis are either red with yellow triangles on the door, or orange, and accept US dollars.
San Jose is the hub for public transport and you can catch a bus to almost anywhere in the country (except to the North Caribbean Coast, a swampy region), however, remote villages may only have once-a-day bus service. Buses leave strictly on time.
Air services of Sansa or Nature Air offer packages of unlimited flights for 1-2 weeks at a set fee, if you want to avoid an 8-12 hr bus ride.
Lodges also arrange for private chartered flights to more remote airstrips
