    It’s true! Buses from Puerto Jiménez to San Jose are leaving now at 5am, 9am and 1pm. It takes 5 hours to get to San Isidro so you can change there and to the bus at 4pm to Uvita 😊

    • Kat

      What do you mean by San Isidro and Uvita? Do we have to take several buses or are there stops?

      Thank you!
