Three buses leave each day, at 4:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. Be there early – buses fill quickly. You will be on the bus for about two hours. When you arrive at San Juanillo, don’t get off – you can go another 1.5 kilometers towards Ostional. Get off the bus at the Hacienda del Sol Sign and walk in (it’s not far) – this is the most economical way.
