One-Way Shared Transportation from La Fortuna to San Juan de Nicaragua

2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After pick up at your hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle, you travel for about 2 hours to arrive to Los Chiles where you have a coffee break and you have time to use the restrooms.

    Afterwards you go to Las Tablillas, which is the border crossing with Nicaragua at about 20 minutes from Los Chiles. Before going to Las Tablillas you first stop at a small office in Los Chiles to pay the exit taxes. Once you arrive at Las Tablillas you have to complete the border formalities at the Costa Rican side of the border and walk across to the Nicaraguan side of the border, a short walk (only 150 meters).

    Here your guide assists you with the immigration process. Your guide accompanies you to the air-conditioned transportation that takes you to San Carlos (Nicaragua). Here you have a guided walk around the city before going to the airport to board the airplane to San Juan de Nicaragua. The flight takes 30 minutes.
