How to Get to the Costa Rica – Nicaragua Border?
Once at the Costa Rica – Nicaragua border, you can buy your bus ticket directly at the bus station at the border. But first, how do you get to the border?
You can travel by public bus, called the chicken bus, from Rivas, San Juan del Sur, and Managua. You can also contact direct buses and shuttles companies such as Tica Bus, Caribe shuttle, and more. (EXTERNAL LINKS)
Another option is to take a taxi to the border, which costs an average of $20-30 from San Juan del Sur and $80-120 from Managua. La Santa Maria staff would be happy to help you coordinate your transportation to/from the border!
