La Fortuna


Tag us on instagram @centrocoasting. We love to see where you're going!

There is a direct bus to/from San José and also buses that pass frequently through Ciudad Quesada.  In the past the trip from Monteverde via Tilaran by local bus was very long and uncomfortable but these days it’s much better. You can even go by horseback!

** please note the schedules on this page need updating. Please read traveller comments about updates and check the 7-10 website for the La Fortuna schedule or here at fortunatwelcom.com. Here is a photo of a schedule sent by a traveller on Mar 16, 2019

La Fortuna Costa Rica bus schedule Mar 2019

La Fortuna to San José:

This schedule has changed a bunch lately! Please leave us a comment if you’ve taken the bus and what time! We were told there was only one bus per day from La Fortuna to San Jose at 2:45pm – though this may be different now. The price is about 2495₡ and takes about 4hrs. The other buses route through Ciudad Quesada – have a look at the schedule above for those times or check the 7-10 website for the La Fortuna schedule or here at fortunatwelcom.com. The cost from La Fortuna to Ciudad Quesada is 1915₡ and the expresso from Ciudad Quesada to San Jose is 1245₡. The expresso leaves frequently when full.

San José to La Fortuna: From the  7-10 Station in San José : 5am, 6:15am, 8:40am, 11:50am. BUT, we had reports lately that only the 8:40 bus is running. See photos of schedule and prices below. 

Sorry for not having any confirmed times, it’s been difficult getting them.

If you are arriving by plane you can get a taxi to the station in Alajuela that has buses to La Fortuna. Taxi is 2000₡

 

San Jose Airport in Alajuela to La Fortuna

There is no bus going directly from the airport in Alajuela to La Fortuna. You can however get a taxi to the Alajuela bus station near the airport and then get a bus to Ciudad Quesada and then continue on to La Fortuna. Here is one traveller who did this recently: Alajuela to La Fortuna.

 

Monteverde to La Fortuna

This may be the coolest way to get to go: Arenal to Monteverde – by horseback! Check out this unique and awesome looking way of going between these two mountain paradises. A half day adventure that is quicker than taking the bus!

 

You can take a shuttle from here that will get you there in 3hrs for $25. It goes something like this: 4×4 Jeep – boat – 4×4 Jeep.  Normally we don’t promote shuttles since this is a BUS travel site – but it is an option since the local bus is quite long. The full trip is about 9hrs by bus.

 

Local bus: Go from Monteverde to Tilarán @5am, 7am, 11:30am or 4pm (TilaránTransportes 2695-5998.). See photo below.  The cost as of June 2017 is 900₡ and the trip takes about 2hrs and 15min. Then Tilarán to La Fortuna (7am and 12:15pm and 3:30pm), 2.5hrs. Check the Tilarán page for more details

 

Tilarán to La Fortuna

There are 3 buses each day to and from Tilarán:

from Tilarán to La Fortuna: 7:00am, 12:20pm; 3:30pm

from La Fortuna to Tilarán : 6:30am, 11:30pm, 3:55pm

The cost as of Jan 2019 the cost is 2950₡ and takes 2-2.5 hours. See photo of schedule below from June 2017.

 

Liberia to La Fortuna

We haven’t done this route but were told this is what you do to get from Liberia to La Fortuna:

“In Liberia take the bus to Cañas (~$3), from Cañas straight on the bus to Tilarán at 12pm (~$1.50), from Tilarán straight on the bus to La Fortuna at 12:30pm ($4) and arrive around 2pm. The next one is at 3:30pm and you will arrive around 5″.

 

Anther traveller, Tanja, did it with this timing:

8:30 Liberia – Cañas (Puntarenas) 1475₡ 1h,

10:40 Cañas – Tilarán 600₡ 45min,

12:15 Tilarán – La Fortuna 2750₡ 2h

 

Arenal to Manuel Antonio

One awesome traveller submitted the info from her trip to Manuel Antonio, have a look at it here – Arenal to Manuel Antonio

Border (Peñas Blancas) to La Fortuna

One helpful traveller named Theo has shared this info:

“We got to the border at Peñas Blancas and found a direct bus to La Fortuna. It was from the second bus store in the line of booths. We caught it at 2.30pm and it dropped us off at Tanque which is 7km from La Fortuna. There is a connecting bus at this point or can easily get a cheap taxi. Cost of the bus was 3000 Colone. Trip took 4.5 hours, hence its easier, faster and cheaper than taking the 3 buses that it would take going via Liberia. I got the impression this bus only left once a day so I believe we were very lucky.”

 

La Fortuna to Peñas Blancas

I haven’t done this but one great traveller named Louise shared her knowledge (March 2018), she says:

“If you take the 6.30am bus to El Tanque, which takes around 10 minutes, you can then wait for the 7.30am(edit Feb 2019 – now 7:00) bus to Penas Blancas.  The bus only goes once a day and arrived/departed 5 or so minutes early. The shops and cafes in El Tanque open at 7 so you can use up the last of your local money. This bus arrives around 12.30 and then departs back to El Tanque at 2:30pm. The bus was full when I got on it and I had to stand for the first two hours. This might have been because of Semana Santa, but as there’s just the one bus a day it wouldn’t surprise me if this happened often. The bus stopped after about two hours, for 15 minutes, so you could use the bathroom or buy stuff. They allow original passengers back on the bus first so they have priority on the seats then let new people on. They bus stops many many times along the way as its used as a local bus service too. It was super cheap, something like 3500 colones.

Price update June 2108: La Fortunat to El Tanque: ₡790, El Tanque to Border: ₡3700

    Thanks for all of the information, excellent resource.

    San Juan –> La Fortuna yesterday. No evidence of the 1150a direct bus, but I got a ticket to Quesada at 1020 for just under 2000 colones. Nice bus, made few stops, reached Quesada in about two hours.

    Just enough time to get a plate of lunch at San Carlos station in Quesada (chicken fried rice and black beans/chips, yum!) and get on the 1300 to La Fortuna. 1500 colones approx., AC bus, bit of a milk run but made it to Fortuna around 14.30. Easy peasy.

    My first Costa Rican intercity adventure, a fun day and I’m looking forward to the next one!

    • Matthew Z

      Erm, San Jose 7-10 to La Fortuna. I keep mixing up my saints, sorry…

  2. Batman

    La Fortuna => Tilaran

    Cost: 2975 colones
    Duration: ±2 hrs
    Times: 08:00, 13:00, 17:00

    The times listed in the la fortuna station are the times that the bus leaves from ciudad quesada I think.

    This bus stops at the terminal in Nuevo Arenal for about ten minutes before continuing to Tilaran. It arrives at the main terminal in Tilaran.

    If you are continuing to monteverde/ Santa Elena the connecting bus leaves tilaran at 12:30

  3. Batman

    Peñas Blancas => La Fortuna

    Did this yesterday. You buy the ticket from the green and white kiosk. It is on the right hand side when exiting the immigration building.

    Cost: 3,630 colones
    Duration: ±5 hours
    Times: 06:30, 14:30

    There were two departure listed in the ticket office, we took the one at 14:30. The bus stops in la Cruz to pick up more paseengers. There was a stop about 3 hrs in for bathroom. The ride was long and the condition of the road was poor.

    This bus drops you in El Tanque, a few kilometers from La Fortuna. From there buses buses San Carlos => La Fortuna pass frequently. We took a taxi because the bus was so delayed we arrived quite late and missed the bus. Perhaps in the dry season it is faster.

    If you pass through immigration earlier in the day it would probably be a better option to take the p.b => Liberia => cañas=> tilaran=> la fortuna. It is quite a number of connections, but I understand from others that the total travel time is similar.

  4. TZ

    I did the 4 bus journey from la Fortuna to Tamarindo on a Sunday in June 2019. It was surprisingly easy.
    The bus from la Fortuna to Tilarán left at 8am. (Seems to be the new time) arrived in Tilarán, direct switch to the bus to Canas, no waiting. In Canas I waited about 8mins (just enough for a coffee and cig) for the bus to Liberia. Here (Liberia) I had to wait a bit longer, ca 30mins for the last bus to Tamarindo. All tickets were purchased from the bus driver, except the last one, which needs to be bought at the counter. All in all a lot better than expected and a very smooth operation saving you 40$ you can spent on surfboard rentals.

  5. Melanie

    Hey, thanks for this really helpful website, it’s been helping me a lot to get around.
    I Would like to share my experience on the La Fortuna-Penas Blancas leg:
    You have to take two busses and transfer in El Tanque, about 7km outside of town. Take the bus at 6am from the La Fortuna bus station – mine was 30min delayed, but since the ride only takes about 10min i was fine. In El Tanque there is a soda that was Open and the store opened a little earlier as well, so you could buy snacks or breakfast.
    The next bus left on the opposite side of the street next to that soda, you basically take a left turn. It was on time.
    Along the way there was a lot of construction going on and the road wasn’t paved for long stretches, making it a very dusty ride. The bus stops in Upala for bathroom/food and will let you in first before letting new people in. Along the way it also stops often, sometimes every 100m, making it a very long trip of 5,5h to the border. The border crossing was very quick though, there was no transnica bus and thus no line. Definitely recommendable, especially for the fare! I paid 790/3700 colones for the busses.

    • Melanie

      Forgot to say, the bus in El Tanque left on time at 7am!

      • centrocoasting

        Thank you! we made that 7am edit above – super helpful!!!

  6. Kat

    Hi, firstly, great, useful website. Just a small thing in case anybody hasn’t said it yet. I did La Fortuna to Penas Blancas yesterday and the bus is was at 7am for me and also for some backpackers who went the day before, not 7.15am. The local bus still makes it in time but if anyone is getting a taxi they may want to set off a bit earlier.

  7. Ana Bastos

    Hey! I was in La Fortuna bus station a few hours ago and it seems that the bus schedules have change.
    You can find a picture with the current bus times here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/uePkFCESSxqzctFq5

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks, Ana, I have added your schedule above. So many changes lately!

  8. Jodi

    The last bus from San Jose to La Fortuna is at 840 am. There is an afternoon bus leaving from another bus station (maybe the one by the airport?). We ended up finding a guy, a friend of the ticket seller, to drive us and another couple to La Fortuna. It was $75 per couple. Expensive but direct and we didn’t have to figure out where to go and what time the bus might leave. Please update the information above to reflect this change. Thanks!

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks, Jodi!

  9. Asha

    Took the 8:40am bus from terminal 7-10 this morning in San Jose to la fortuna. I got there an hour early and went to the second floor to buy my ticket from Venecia on the left hand side. No lines. Went downstairs and sat down for about ten minutes and noticing the couple of lines forming i asked a worker there if there was a line for la fortuna (it was probably around 8am at that point). There was one person in line. I probably could’ve continued sitting for another 15-25 minutes or so because the line wasn’t too long and everyone pretty much got a window seat. The bus was only half full. You stand in line until the guy tells your line where to go when the bus comes. The driver will take the yellow part of your ticket and you keep the white part. The bus was air conditioned. Get a window seat to enjoy the views. The bus probably stopped at ten or so different spots. He’ll clearly say when the ten minute break is (it was in ciudad de quesada) where there are bathrooms and food stalls. The bus ride was easy and went by quickly watching the scenery. I kept my bookbag with me though others put larger bags down below in the baggage storage area. When we arrived in la fortuna, it’s easy to walk around the town and get food or sign up for tours. I didn’t see any cabs though so asked my restaurant to call one for me to get to my Airbnb. Hope this helps!

    • centrocoasting

      Great trip summary, Asha! Thanks for helping.

  10. Emma

    Hi!
    I see there is no information about how and when to go to El Castillo. It is a private shuttle (run solid by father Arturo and son) 3 times a day. Is this information useful or rather no private shuttles? There is no public transport unfortunately!

  11. Aletta

    I took the bus from la fortuna to tilaran today. It left at 8.00 am. Cheers!

    • Arianie

      Hi Aletta,

      We will leave for Tilaran (heading to Monteverde) tomorrow morning from La Fortuna. Do you know if it’s a changed schedule or was it just that day? Our hostel informed us that the bus leaves at 7.30 and you pay the bus driver on the bus, instead of buying a ticket beforehand. Could you tell me if that was also the case with you?

      Thanks in advance!

      Cheers
      Arianie

      • centrocoasting

        Sorry for the late reply. Let us know how your trip went and what the schedule was. Thanks!

  12. Timo

    They changed today the schedule from San José buses. There is only one direct bus from La Fortuna to San José at 14.45 left. They cancelled the others. We took the 12.45 Express to Ciudad Quesada (1245 CRC) and from there the Express who leaves every 30 min or when he is full to San José (1915 CRC). Took us 5h in total.

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks Timo, is this a permanent change or just for that day?

      • Timo

        they told us it’s permanent from february 1, 2019 on

  13. Lena

    Just bought a bus ticket from the Alajuela bus station to La Fortuna.
    It costs 2.700 CRC and the bus is supposed to leave at 12.30.
    Here’s a link to the bus station in Alajuela: North Bus Station
    Radial Francisco J. Orlich, Alajuela Province, Alajuela, Costa Rica
    https://maps.app.goo.gl/c9kRk

    You can get there by uber (~1.300).

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks, Lena!!

  14. Adam

    Just took the bus from Cañas to Tilaran. Theres no way to leave at 12 and arrive by 1230 (the bus leaves Tilaran for La Fortuna at 12:15 now anyways. Better make sure youre on the 10:45 bus from Cañas to Tilaran.

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks!

  15. Ania

    Hi,
    I’m going from La Fortuna to Alajuela. I would like to ask what time does the last one bus go, how long it takes and how much does it cost?
    Regards,
    Ania

  16. Andrew

    We just took the bus from La Fortuna to Tilaran on 12/29/18. Though the sign says there is a bus at 7:30 am, it actually leaves at 8:00 am and it costs 2950 colones/person.

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks!

  17. Marguerite

    Hi Everyone! Last week I took the bus from San Jose to La Fortuna, but we took the bus at the stop in Alajuela (nearest to SJO airport). You should keep in mind that the times the busses leave in Alajuela are around 30-60 minutes later than stated above. This can save you some time maybe.

    • centrocoasting

      Hey Marguerite! Can you send us the exact location the bus stopped in Alajuela? Maybe a Google Maps link? We love to re-confirm details as often as we can!

  18. America

  19. Nick

    Hi guys,

    Just did La Fortuna to Montezuma. Ended up being just over 12 hours but of it wasn’t for me about to board a cruise instead of a ferry at Puntarenas, could have been more like 9…

    Details as follows:

    La Fortuna 5:30am – San Ramon arrived 7:45am (supposed to be 7.30 but bus driver liked a chat…. cost COL 2,350

    In San Ramon you walk to the next crossroads straight ahead from where the bus drops you off and then turn right, 2 blocks down in the bus station.

    There is a a 7.35am to Puntarenas , but unless you mask tape the bus driver, that ain’t happening. Next one is as follows…

    San Ramon 8.35am – Puntarenas 10.15 am (supposed to be 9.35am, we will call it bad traaffic) cost COL 1,800

    Now in Puntarenas there is a dock when you come out to your left and there might be a big queue , that is NOT the ferry. I nearly accidentally went for a cruise and missed the 11am ferry which departs on the other side of town, 20 min walk or 5 min taxi. The next one is now at 3 as the ferry device has changed (one boat out of action)

    Ferry – Puntarenas 3pm – parquera 4.10pm cost COL 810

    Bit of a scramble off the boat and there are a few buses lines up, so just ask if you are going to Montezuma or Santa Teresa. The guys at Santa Teresa for off after an hour at Coban, so not sure about that last bit. For Montezuma, it was

    Parquera 4.45pm – Montezuma 6.15pm cost COL 1,800 ( beware of the bus drivers charging you more, I paid double but after chatting to a sweet old Costa Rican lady she got my money back).

    Tickets can be bought from the driver at la Fortuna and Parquera, from stands at San Ramon and Puntarenas.

    Tiring journey, but kind of fun and you feel a lot more intrepid than getting a shuttle. It only cost about COL 6,700 so about $11 compared to $67 for a direct shuttle.

    I’d do it again,but maybe miss standing in line for the cruise… Happy travels people and hope this helps!

    • centrocoasting

      Hey Nick, super awesome post about your experience. Thanks so much for sharing and helping out your fellow travellers!

  20. Ping

    hello, I was wondering if anyone knows where (approx. street name) the bus would drop us off in San Jose? So I know where to book hotels or plan for taxi pick up. Thank you!

    • centrocoasting

      Hi Ping, the bus will take you to the 7-10 station. If you put that name into Google Maps you should see it pop up.

  21. Andrew

    Is there a time table for what time the bus departs from the main station in alejuela going to la Fortuna? Is it the same bus departing from San Jose Central or a different one?

    • centrocoasting

      Hey Andrew, sorry to be slow on this. You actually head to Ciudad Quesada and then on to La Fortuna from there. If you look above you will see Ciudad Quesada in the photos. Buses from Alajuela to Quesada are frequent though I don’t have the schedule for that. If you go this way please send us a shot of the Alajuela bus station schedule to the FB page so we can post it!

  22. Fabian

    Hi, we took the same route from La Fortuna to Peñas Blancas as Louis did (on June 6th 2018). We were told that the bus from El Tanque to the border leaves at 7.15am.

    So we took the 6.30am bus from La Fortuna to El Tanque (~20min, CRC 790). At 7.10am the bus to Peñas Blancas (CRC 3700) arrived. On the way we stopped in Upala for about 15min. We also arrived at the border around 12.30pm.

  23. eliza

    Hey, is there a name or address for the bus station in La Fortuna? I am coming from Monteverde and then going back to San Jose, so I won’t be familiar with the terminal when I get there. Also, when do I buy the ticket for the trip from La Fortuna to San Jose – is it same day or can I purchase the day before? Thank you.

    • centrocoasting

      Hi there, sorry to be slow! If you zoom in on the map above you can find the little bus marker. I don’t believe at this time you can buy your ticket in advance online anywhere, but you should be able to buy it from the terminal.

  24. Jan

    Hey,
    we are traveling right now in Costa Rica with Public Transport.

    Is their a possibility to come from la Fortuna to Santa Teresa or Montezuma in one day by public Transportation?
    Thanks a lot !

    • centrocoasting

      Hi Jan, sorry to be slow on this, could you post your journey here so others can benefit from your new Costa Rica bus knowledge!

  25. Rosie Cox

    Hi, is there a bus after midday to La Fortuna? We won’t make it into San Jose much before then as we are taking the 7 am bus from Manzanillo.

    Thanks in advance!

    • centrocoasting

      Hi Rosie, the only information we have for schedules to La Fortuna is what is on this page.

    Hi, what is the name of the station in San Jose where I can catch buses to la Fortuna?
    Thanks 🙂

  27. Louise Mitcheson

    If you take the 6.30am bus to El Tanque, which takes around 10 minutes, you can then wait for the 7.30am bus to Penas Blancas. The bus only goes once a day and arrived/departed 5 or so minutes early. The shops and cafes in el Tanque open at 7 so you can use up the last of your local money. This bus arrives around 12.30 and then departs back to el tanque at 2pm. The bus was full when I got on it and I had to stand for the first two hours. This might have been because of semana santa, but as there’s just the one bus a day it wouldn’t surprise me if this happened often.

  29. Laurie

    Hey,

    In case someone is looking for the info :
    It is possible to go to La Fortuna from the Airport (SJO)
    – Take a taxi (2000₡) to the bus station of Alajuela. Or walk (20min walk in the sun) . I choose to take a taxi
    In the bus station there is only one company selling direct tickets from Alajuela to La Fortuna.
    I took the 9:30 am bus.
    Sorry I can’t remember the schedule but there were about 4 or 5 buses during the day.
    I paid something like 2500₡ or 3500₡, and it took 3 hours.
    Keep your backpack with you if you can, keep your small bag with you too (never put it in the overhead compartment) & enjoy the view !
    It is a public bus so there are many stops. The bus makes a 10 min stop midway in Ciudad Quesada (you can buy food & use the bathrooms). Keep an eye on your luggage and everything will be fine (99,9% of the costa ricans are helpful, nice & adorable; however I saw a girl got her bag stolen in that bus, that is why I insist) .

    Did that trip on March 4th, 2018

    • centrocoasting

      Thanks, Laurie! Great info!

  30. Melanie

    Hi! Does anyone know whether it is possible to go from La Fortuna to Puerto Viejo in one day? From this site I know there is a 9.15am bus to San Jose and there is a 2pm (or 4pm) to Puerto Viejo but I guess that is not the same San Jose station? Does anyone know if it is doable? Otherwise we might just plan one night in San Jose and take it slowly. Thanks!

    • centrocoasting

      Hi Melanie! Yes the bus to Puerto Viejo is this one https://centrocoasting.com/costarica/san-jose-terminal-mepe/. It’s is about 1km from the 7-10 station where you arrive from La Fortuna. I haven’t had an update on the PV schedule for a bit but the last update in May 2017 has the last bus to Puerto Viejo at 6pm. The trip to PV is ~4.5hrs with a price of 5590C. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible if you left La Fortuna early. It looks like a combined total of about 8-9hrs of bus travel. One of my favourite things when travelling Central America is these epic distances but definitely a LOT of bus time! The only tricky part may be getting a seat on the bus to PV if you don’t get there a bit early as I am told it’s a busy bus.

      • Annika

        Hi,
        i just did this trip and it worked out great!
        Took the direct bus from La Fortuna to San José at 9:10am, got to San José at around 1:35pm, asked taxi drivers for the way to the Mepe Terminal which was only a 4 minute walk;
        Easily got a ticket for the 2pm bus to Cahuita! (It was a wednesday)

  31. Kate

    We just came from Arenal (not La Fortuna) to Manuel Antonio and the bus route and times was as follows:

    7:15am Arenal to Tilarán

    8:30am Tilarán to Cañas (the Cañas bus might be waiting in the station for the Arenal bus so jump off your bus straight into this one).

    9:30am Cañas to Puntarenas

    11:15am (we think this was a late 11am bus as we literally jumped off our bus straight onto this bus) Puntarenas to Quepos
    Arrived around 2:45pm

    Buses run every 15/20 mins from Quepos to Manuel Antonio.

    The whole journey cost us around $10 dollars each.

    We had amazing connections but doing this route gives you the most options as they are all busy bus stations.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your information.
    We did the same tour like Tanja, leaving Liberia at 8:30 am (1500 c), then went in Canas at 10:40 am (600 c) with the Bus to Tileran to get the final bus at 12:15 pm to Fortuna (2700 c) arriving there at approx. 2 pm.
    I think this ist the best timing die the Route 🙂

      Hi! I did this one too yesterday – really simple. The bus times have changed slightly from Cañas to Tilaran so I took photos – where shall I send them?!
