Ferries cross the Golfo de Nicoya connecting the central pacific coast with the southern tip of the Península Nicoya between Playa Naranjo and Paquera , for a bus connection to Tambor, Montezuma and Mal País.
In the Golfo Dulce, on the southern Pacific coast, a daily passenger ferry links Golfito with Puerto Jiménez on the Peninsula de Osa, and a weekday water taxi travels to and from Playa Zancudo. Another small ferry operates on the Río Coto Colorado on the Golfito - Playa Zancudo Road. On the other side of the Península Osa, water taxis connect Bahía Drake with Sierpe.
On the Caribbean, there is also a daily bus and boat service form Cariari to Tortuguero and vice versa. Boats are available for travel between Moín, near Puerto Limón, and Tortuguero. A daily water taxi connects Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí with Trinidad on the Río San Juan. You can arrange boat transport in any of these towns for Barra del Colorado.
To avoid accidents, please check that boats are properly equipped with life-jackets - and make sure that you're at least holding on to one during your ride. Avoid taking a boat in stormy weather.
