Driving from the airport (SJO)

 

  1. From San José airport (SJO), go north on the Panamerican Hwy (#1) to San Ramon.
  2. In 30-40 minutes you will see signs for the San Ramón turn-off. Turn RIGHT at Plaza Occidente.
  3. Continue straight to a traffic light (gas station on the right) and stay straight, passing behind the big, gray cathedral on the left. Proceed through town, being careful to stop at any “alto” signs, until you come to a “T”.
  4. At this last “alto” turn LEFT, then RIGHT at the traffic light.
  5. Continue on this road, the route to Arenal. You will pass another traffic light with a gas station on the left, then another gas station on the right before you begin to ascend a hill with a couple of speed bumps. At the top, you’ll see a BEIGE AND BROWN CHURCH (Iglesia de San Juan).
  6. At the church, you will make a RIGHT at the “Y”, then descend to another speed bump.
  7. Proceed until you reach an intersection with a stop sign. There will be “Bar Oriente” on the far left and a soccer field just beyond.
  8. Continue straight. The road will curve about 90 degrees to the left soon, then descend and curve left fairly abruptly, then it will curve to the right and ascend again.
  9. When you reach the top of the hill, you will see our sign on the right indicating our entrance just beyond on the LEFT, just as you begin descending. It is an asphalt road, about 60 meters long with a concrete retaining wall to the left of the road. Be careful because the entrance is in a curve in the road.
  10. Go all the way to the end to the big wooden gate and ring the bell on the right. You won’t miss us. We have a big stone retaining wall and a sign on the gate.
