Our driver was extremely nice and very informative. He made a bunch of stops along our 4 hour drive, showing us some interesting things. He also took us to a place to eat lunch that was amazing! I would highly recommend this shuttle service for anyone visiting costa rica

Perfect First Experience in Costa Rica
Annalee_O, Feb 2024
We had a perfect ride from SJO airport to Manuel Antonio. We easily spotted the person waiting for us when we got out of customs. He led us to the pickup area outside the airport. Our driver, Aniel, was fabulous. We stopped to see crocodiles from a bridge, and we stopped for a delicious lunch (the ceviche set the bar for the trip). He told us about the different towns we drove through, which I appreciated. It was a great experience from beginning to end, and a wonderful way to start our trip.
Wonderful safe driver

The experience with this company, CostaRicaTripGude was great from the outset. Right after I made the booking they immediately contacted me and let me know all the minute details of how and where I would find them outside the airport. This was very reassuring to say the least. Our flight was early but we did not have to wait more than 5 minutes. Our driver, Edgar was fantastic. We had a big Mercedes Sprinter van all to ourselves. It was clean, the ride was comfortable. We stopped at Tarcoles Bridge to see the crocodiles and right before we entered Quepos, Edgar also took us to a BM supermarket as requested so that we could stock up on some essentials. I plan to use this company for all my shuttle journeys on future trips in Costa Rica.

Edgar was very informative and explaining things very nicely. Not only did we get to our destination, we also had a cultural and educational tour right in the van. The mid-stop point was nice for the family with kids.
Great service

The drive was smooth, he stopped so I can get some water as well, and was very helpful with giving suggestions on what to do, or where to go. Very kind, and personable. Also helped with bringing my bag up to the hostel! Very sweet.

Hola Jenni Thank you for your candid comments. That route is so beautiful that deserves to make stops and admire the country side... and enjoy your first local food experience! Enjoy your vacation time in Costa Rica!
Our driver went above and beyond the call of duty for us
Christy, Feb 2020
Our driver was Johnny and he was absolutely wonderful! We had a very rough start to our trip to Costa Rica, including none of our baggage not making it with us and no opportunity to eat since our initial flight that morning. Our driver offered to take us to restaurants, but we ended up at a small supermarket per our request to buy some snack-foods to hold us over. I got very ill from a combination of dehydration/motion sick on some of Costa Rica's winding roads, and our driver took me to a bathroom stop next to a pharmacy when it got too bad so I could also get medication for nausea. He waited for my stomach to settle a bit, and then made sure we made it to our hotel safely. He even gave us his information if we needed any further transport services! Most caring and considerate driver I've ever had in any country I've ever been to!
San Jose to Manual Antonio Shuttle

Obi, our driver was really great. He spoke very good English and made stops at the Hot spots on the way to Manual Antonio. We will definitely ask for him again on our next trip to Costa Rica.
Excelente servicio
