From the San Jose Airport, go to the new Terminal 7-10 which is right in the heart of San Jose, diagonal to Libano Cinema in Barrio Mexico. Enter the terminal under the large 7-10 sign. As soon as you enter, you must head to the second floor to buy tickets. First floor is where you get onto the bus and third floor is to buy tickets for other destinations. Second floor has a waiting room. The bus to Jaco is about $5 USD.
To get to Terminal 7-10 take the bus in front of the airport (there are people out front to assist you who speak English). The bus to the terminal will cost about $2. You could also take a taxi, but the cost is approximately $15-$20 USD
