Transportation to and from Turrialba

Conference organizers will be providing some direct buses from the airport all the way to Turrialba. A precise timetable with dates and pickup spots will be provided later.

If none of the direct transportation possibilities work for you, local transportation between cities in Costa Rica can be done by bus or car only.  You will need to take a bus to Turrialba. For this, take a taxi at the airport and ask the driver to take you to the Turrialba bus stop (“Parada de Turrialba, por la Corte”).  At the station, go the the ticket seller counter and buy a ticket to Turrialba (preferably on a direct bus as it will take shorter to get to Turrialba). The bus line to Turrialba operates every day from San José from 5am to 9pm, and from Turrialba to San José from 5am to 10pm. The trip is about 65 kilometers long and takes about 1:30 hours. Once in Turrialba, you can take a taxi to your hotel or to the conference. If going to the conference venue just tell the cab driver to take you to “Campus de la Universidad de Costa Rica”
