How to Get to San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua from Costa RicaFrom Costa Rica take Tica Bus to Rivas or
Chicken Bus to Border then go to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua
It is easy to get to where you are going in Nicaragua.
You can get a bus from the Coca Cola bus station in San Jose to the
border, then walk across the frontier, and then get on another bus to
San Juan del Sur or to Rivas first, and then on to San Juan.
Or you can get on a Tica Bus to Rivas and then travel on to San Juan del
Total trip time should be around 8 hours.
I have no information on hiring a car in Costa Rica, but it is very
common. I do not know if you could drop it off in Nicaragua.

Your comment or other
information: Useful info on the bus journey, thanks. We are also
planning a trip to Nicaragua but flying into Costa Rica. We wil be
staying in San Juan Del Sur when we get to Costa Rica. Do you have any
idea how long the bus journey is? Alternatively, do you have any info on
hiring a car from Costa Rica and driving over into Nicaragua?

I just did this trip. If you have a small group, like 4, forget the bus
and call this guy, Mauricio, at Cantico tours. They're based in Playas
del Coco (Guanacste) but he does pick ups in San Jose. You can't drive a
rental car across the border, so he gets you there and you meet Rafa-who
has an outstandingly comfortable vehicle- and he drives you the rest of
the way. He can leave you in san Juan del Sur and you can arrange when
he should return to take you back to the border. You don't even have to
stand in line at the border. These guys do all the work. Liberia is a
"major city" in Guanacaste btw San Jose and the Nica border. The CR
coast is only about 45 min from there and worth a detour. Hotel Gran
Oceano in SanJuan del Sur offers some nice fishing.
