Paquera ferry adjusts schedule

March 10, 2015

 

The ferry shuttling passengers between the Pacific port of Puntarenas and Paquera, on the Nicoya Peninsula, will have a new schedule next month to accommodate an expected increase in passengers.
 
From July 1 until Aug. 2, the ferry will run 14 trips a day – seven in each direction – for passengers hoping to cut an hour off their trip between Puntarenas and the Guanacaste beaches. The ferries can accommodate all types of vehicles, from motorcycles and bikes to cars and buses.
 
The Seaports Division of the Public Works Ministry approved the change. The ferry leaving Puntarenas usually departs from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m. The first departure time will not change, but, starting July 1, the last ferry will leave at 9 p.m. An extra departure will take place in the afternoon. The first Paquera boat leaves at 6 a.m., and the last will depart at 8 p.m.
 
The authorities expect the scheduled changes will provide for the larger number of passengers expected during July, when most students in Costa Rica will be on holiday after taking their midterm exams. The break will result in a high season in travel. The new schedule lasts until the Dia del Virgen de Los Angeles, a national holiday celebrated Aug. 2.
 
The costs of the ferry for adults (¢810, equal to about $1.57) and children (¢485, or 95 cents) will not change. The cost of the trip for passenger cars will remain at ¢6,300.
