What kind of local transportation is there in the area?

If you do not plan to rent a car, PLC charges $150 round trip to pick you up from and return you to the Liberia airport.

The bus system is quite good and inexpensive in Costa Rica.  There is a local bus that comes by San Miguel twice daily to take you to the closest town of Jicaral where you can change other busses to take you around the country.
