To take a taxi from SJO may cost $40+, hard to say really as no one knows where it is. I took the bus into the city and then took another In the direction of the hotels location (not Santa Ana). This was a bad move. Looking at Google maps shows where it is but, not the gradients of the area! The area is on the side of a mountain, that's not to say it has unlimited vistas however. So a vehicle is required even without bags. Not to bang on; it's horses for courses, just a difficult location for some.
