Overview
More
Caribe Shuttle is a semi-private transportation service that started in 2008 as a shuttle service on the Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, with one route between Puerto Viejo and Bocas del Toro in Panama. As of December 15th, 2015 this service will be running 3 times per day, 6 AM, 8 AM and then again at 12 PM. We have also expanded our routes to cover a range of destinations in Costa Rica including San Jose, la Fortuna, Tortuguero, and most recently to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua! In our commitment to provide our customers with the best experience possible, we are in the process of fitting all our vehicles with onboard WIFI. At this time while most vans have free WIFI for your use, there will be some without. We also specialize in private transfers, making it easy for you to get around quickly, conveniently and comfortably when ever and however you like. We offer tours and packages as well for many destinations in Costa Rica and Panama. Organizing both your transport and your tours quickly and conveniently online makes it much easier for you to plan your stay in Costa Rica and then enjoy your time while you are here.
