Luna Caribeña is located only 3.7 miles from Puerto Viejo on the road that heads towards Manzanillo and the border with Panama at a very short distance from Chiquita Beach, known for it's heavenly beauty



How to get here?

Getting to/from Puerto Viejo is pretty easy and there are options for all budgets:

Public Bus

Buses in Costa Rica are generally very reliable, run on schedule and are reasonably comfortable (they do not have A/C however). They are also very affordable. Buses between San Jose's Caribbean Bus Terminal and Puerto Viejo run four times daily. Cost is about $8 per person one way.
You can view the complete schedule here.

Shared Shuttle

Several companies operate scheduled minivan service to/from the Puerto Viejo area. This is not particularly faster than the public bus (and may even be slower if you are the first to be picked up or last to be dropped off) but it does offer several advantages:

  • They will pickup directly at most hotels in San Jose and drop-off directly at most hotels in Puerto Viejo so there is no need to make your way to/from the bus terminal.
  • They have some routes which avoid San Jose, for example Puerto Viejo to/from Arenal (on the public bus you'd have to change buses and bus terminals in San Jose)
  • They can be reserved in advance (public bus tickets can only be bought at the station and they do sometimes sell out).

Depending on the route, prices vary from $39-$49 per person one-way. We can arrange your Interbus ticket online:

Private Shuttle

A private shuttle is a way to maximize your vacation. You can hire a private driver who will meet your international incoming flight and take you directly to your Puerto Viejo destination for $190 for up to 8 people. It's also a great option if you have lots of luggage or if you have pets. We have fixed priced rates for many other routes in Costa Rica too. This is on your schedule so there is no need to coordinate your schedule with that of Interbus or the public bus. And if your flight arrives San Jose in the afternoon, this is often the only realistic way to get to the beach on your first night and avoid spending the first night in San Jose (we don't recommend driving yourself after dark if you're unfamiliar with the route).

Car Rental

Renting a car and driving is another option. All the major car rental agencies operate offices in San Jose both at the airport and in downtown San Jose. A few also have office scattered around vacation destination towns in Costa Rica although currently there is only one agency in the Puerto Viejo area, the Costa Rican company Poas. Costa Rica is known for its bad roads unfortunately, with car-swallowing pot holes. Signage is generally decent once you're on major routes but arriving in a city center can be very confusing, especially in the central valley major towns.
