TaxisAnother easy way to get around is by Taxi. Most of the Costa Tropical towns are just minutes away, so it's an inexpensive alternative if you need to get somewhere fast or prefer not to wait for the bus.
Each town has one or two designated taxi stands where you can find a taxi, or you can call and have one pick you up.
