A modern fleet and impeccable coordination with the transportation company is the backbone of a successful operation. Be it a limousine to the beach, 4x4 transfer to a secluded meeting in the jungle, or private transfer services between the airport, planned activities and hotels, we will always provide modern premium transportation.

In the following overview you can see the standard occupancy of our modern transportation, which generally offers every client a comfortable seat and has enough space for one main piece of luggage and one small hand luggage.

Choose the premium occupancy in case your clients ask for even more comfort and window seats, and if extra luggage space is required on the same bus.

Marcopolo and Irizar models


Seats: 48-56 (no jumpseats)

ARA Tours standard occupancy: 36-50 guests
ARA Tours premium occupancy: 29-35 guests

Luggage: Large luggage area underneath and luggage compartments overhead in the bus

Comments:Very comfortable travel bus with reclining seats, air-conditioning, TV with DVD player, cooler, and some are equipped with bathrooms. However, a bathroom is seldom a necessity as there are very few long stretches in Costa Rica where drivers continue without stops. These models are suitable for standard tours on the main motorways and well-built regional roads. Because of the weight and size of the bus, leaving these roads is usually not an option. Travel times are about 50% longer than in a personal vehicle.
