Arrival by bus

From San Jose airport (SJC) take a taxi to the 7/10 bus station in downtown San Jose where direct buses (Transporte Cobano) leave to Mal Pais/Santa Teresa at 06:00 and 14:00 every day (costs about 16 USD). Leave the bus in Santa Teresa and take a taxi to Hermosa (10 USD). The entire trip will take around 6 hours.
