How to get there

It is easy to get to our house. We recommend flying into Liberia Airport, since it’s much quicker from there. However, going from San Jose is also possible and gives you the chance to see a bit more of the country.

 

By car

From San Jose Airport (3.5-4hours): Take Highway 27 via Caldera, then Highway 1 to Limonal, then head to Nicoya crossing the gulf at the Puente La Amistad. In Nicoya take Route 150 to Samara. In Samara, make a left turn and take the paved road to Playa Carrillo. Drive all the way along the beach, cross the bridge and follow the road up the hill. Make a right turn at Hotel Esperanza. You will see the house after 300 Meters on the right side.

By Plane

Sansa Air offers flights from San Jose to Nosara. From there, it’s a taxi ride of about an hour to get to the house.

By Bus

You can take a public bus from downtown San Jose directly to Samara. It’s operated by Empresas Alfaro and leaves from the bus terminal 7-10 at Calle 10/Avenida 7. Be there early to buy tickets in person. This bus takes about 4 hours. In Samara you can switch to a local bus to Playa Carrillo which takes about 10 Minutes.

You can also take shared or private shuttles from San Jose Airport or Liberia Airport operated by Interbus.
