Private taxis are an option, as well. If you hire one at the airport, expect to pay between $200 and $250. Be very cautious that the vehicle is in sound order and that the driver is aware you are going to Puerto Viejo de Limon, NOT Puerto Viejo de Sarapique.
If you’re considering a private driver, please arrange with us in advance and we will find you a trusted ride. We like to support the local ﬁshermen, several of whom own 12-15 passenger vans. The extra room will assure you a comfortable trip over– sleep, stretch out, stop for snacks, etc. They will not charge extra for luggage, and they will pick you up as you exit customs and deliver you straight to our door anytime of day or night. The cost is $200 (for up to 6 people), and in my opinion, worth the peace of mind. Besides, being locals, by the time you arrive, not only will you have insider’s knowledge, but you’ll have a friend in town from one of the oldest families!
