Costa Rica News – Before the ferry gets suspended to do repairs, a private company stepped up to offer ferry services between Puntarenas and Paquera as of this Tuesday as a temporary measure to deal with the suspension.
The neighbors came up with the temporary solution. No permit is needed since it’s a private company rather than a public service.
The boats that will be used in the temporary service belong to the company Guia Turistico Osiris. The trips will cost ¢3,000 for adults and ¢1,500 for children.
The boats can accommodate 30 people and the trip takes about 40 minutes.
They will leave Paquera from Monday to Friday at 5:15, 10 and 2 and from Puntarenas at 6:15, 11 and 5. On Saturdays they will leave Paquera at 5L15, 10 and 3 and from Puntarenas at 6:30, 2 and 5. On Sundays the departure from Paquera will be at 5:30 and from Puntarenas at 5.
