From David to San Jose, CR

The main bus company from David to San Jose Costa Rica is Tracopa. They leave David at 730 am or noon. They stop at the border where you take your luggage off. Security does a quick check then you load it back on. The bus then leaves with it as you get your exit stamp. Then walk 500m across border and pass your bus to the blue building to get your CR entry stamp. (occasionally CR may ask for documentation that you are leaving the country but this did not happen to me). After stamped waiting in the large caged area for security to check bag once again then your bus will roll back up and you can go back to your assigned seat. (total time 5-8 hours depending on border time of 1-2 hours).
