There are 3 buses from Puntarenas to Monteverde: 7.50am, 1.50pm and 2.15pm.
There are 2 ways upto Monteverde - 1.50pm goes via La Juntas and 2.15pm via Lagartos. Allegedly, the 2.15pm route takes less time than the 1.50pm one.
If you try to do the journey from Manuel Antonio in 1 day like us, it can be done:
7.30am from Quepos, wait at Puntarenas (not so pleasant) for 3 hours or so, take 1 of the afternoon buses.
10.30am from Quepos, will still make it in time for either of the afternoon buses, assuming nothing untoward happens (eg a bus breakdown, accident).
