I recommend renting a car and driving but if you prefer use grayline tours at the airport in San Jose

Response from Shana-Management | Property representative |
From San Jose you can use Sansa local airlines to fly to Quepos. If you use the car it is a nice drive about 2h30min. Roads to MAnuel Antonio are the best in Costa Rica.
