Where Can I Find The Schedule?
How Early Do I Need To Arrive?
Everything in Costa Rica moves a bit slower. We arrived about 5 minutes early with a car and we were still were able to get on. I wouldn’t recommend it, but if it happens, don’t worry. Arriving 20 minutes early should give you plenty of time.
Do I Need To Book Ahead Of Time?
We traveled in May and definitely did not need to book ahead of time. We purchased a ticket at the station. If you are traveling in peak season AND bringing a car, then it might be worth buying one a day in advance.
