How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO).

Arrival by bus

From the airport, you can take this bus service called Grayline or Interbus. These are 8-10 passenger vans that offer service to and from San Jose. Their schedules are limited to one to three trips per day and your airplane would have to arrive at a time that lines up with their schedule in order to use their service. The cost is around 40 USD. This service is comfortable and cheaper than the private taxi. You would have to call them to make a reservation, you can find the numbers on their websites.

Alternatively, you can also take the public bus. This option currently cost around 5 USD, but you would have to catch a bus or cab to the bus station in downtown San Jose (30-40 minutes from the airport). The bus station is called “Terminal 7-10” in San Jose. Then, wait for the next available bus to Jaco. They run about every two hours, and the bus ride is approximately three hours long. The last bus currently leaves at 7:00 p.m. This option is the cheapest by far, but you would need to speak a little Spanish and feel comfortable navigating your way into San Jose.

Arrival by taxi

You can take a private taxi which would meet you at the airport and bring you directly to the school. The cost is 90 USD and can be shared by up to five people. School of the World will try to pair students together when possible, but there are no guarantees due to delayed / missed flights, etc. The school is located approximately 1.5 hours from the airport by this method. This option is the easiest and fastest, but also can be the most expensive.

Airport: Juan Santamaría International Airport Airport transfer available: Juan Santamaría International Airport (US$90 per person) Additional charges may apply. You can request this in the next step.
