Costa Rica is a very peculiar country when it comes to its transport as it has a very small car fleet, because the bulk of the population travels by public bus. The Costa Rican peculiarity does not end here, because its public transport network has the capital, San José, as its nerve centre. Therefore, if you want to visit a city by using the bus, you must depart from one of the many capital city stations as each of them works with a different destination. However, all of them have a very affordable price.

The public transport meets the minimum security requirements, so you can travel at your leisure, even though depending on the influx of people, which is higher in the main lines, you will need to book the tickets in a more or less advance.

Even though it has not a national company, there are many companies providing these kind of services, Costa Rica has a fairly developed public transport system, so that allows a faster mobility between villages and also the possibility of reaching further places.
