QCOSTARICA by Henry Morales, Vozdeguanacaste – Mid-year vacations are coming soon and bus companies must work quickly to meet the demand from tourists who hope to enjoy Guanacaste’s national park’s and beaches.

The company Alfaro provides the most service to Guanacaste’s coasts, with routes from San Jose to Puerto Carrillo, Samara, Nosara and Tamarindo. Tralapa serves the San Jose-Flamingo route, while the company Pulmitan offers transportation to the areas around Playas del Coco.

Carlos Hernandez, who works for the Pulmitan de Liberia company, said that in 2014 the fleet was reinforced with 15 vehicles:

We keep a fixed schedule, but when there are high seasons what we do is put more buses to work. Two years ago we added nine units and the year before that we bought two double-decker buses,” said Hernandez.

For their part, Alfaro and La Pampa do something similar – the bus schedules remain the same, but in the high season they meet demand with extra service.

Buses leave from San Jose daily from the new 7-10 bus terminal, which is located in Barrio Mexico.
