We are planning a trip to Costa Rica and looking at taking the bus to get between places (e.g. San José, La Fortuna, Manuel Antonio, Sámara).
I'm looking for some advice on the best way to plan the journey. Is there a good site with accurate and complete bus schedules? Do we need to book ahead? Or just buy tickets when we get there? We'll also be travelling with a 10-month old -- anything else we should be aware of?
I know there are tourist shuttle bus companies Grayline and Interbus which we may use if necessary, but would prefer to use the public buses where we can.
