Getting There & Departing -- If you’re driving, take the road to Paraíso from Cartago, head toward Orosi, and continue around the lake counterclockwise, passing through Cachí and Ujarrás and back to Paraíso. It is difficult to explore this whole area by public bus because connections are often infrequent or unreliable. Regular buses do run from Cartago to Orosi, Cachí, and Ujarrás, but they do not make the entire loop. These buses run roughly every half-hour and leave the main bus terminal in Cartago. The trip takes 30 minutes, and the fare runs between C250 to C500, depending on where you get off the bus.
