DIRECTIONS

We are located at Route 34 - La Union Rd, Uvita, Puntarenas, Costa Rica. Uvita is only a three hour drive on a newly completed coastal highway from the San Jose International Airport. 

Flying to Costa Rica

  • International visitors fly into the San Jose International Airport (SJO).
  • Most places in Costa Rica, including taxi drivers and bus stations, accept $USD. You will receive change in Costa Rican Colones (the local currency).
  • Uvita is only a three hour drive from SJO. You may also opt for a short flight from San Jose to the Quepos Airport and drive an easy 60 minutes to Uvita.

Getting From San Jose Airport to Selva Armonia

  • Please contact us at least 72 hours prior to your trip if you’d like us to arrange a shuttle for you. Prices range from $50-$75 for a group shuttle depending upon the season, $200 for private shuttle up to 5 people. There are taxis outside of the SJO airport that will safely take you to Uvita for $150-$200.
  • The most economical option is the public bus to Uvita. The ride takes 4.5 hours and will deliver you to the center of Uvita. To get to Tracopa, you'll take a $25-$30 taxi to Delio Morales Bus Station, also known as the Tracopa Bus Station, and purchase a bus ticket (un billete) to the town of Uvita. Ticket cost is around $10.  Click here for bus schedules.
  • Across the street from the Uvita bus station is the BM Supermarket. During the day, it should be fairly easy to find a 4x4 taxi. Taxis to Selva Armonia cost around $15-$20. Please let us know in advance if you need a taxi arranged for you.

 

*If you opt to rent a car, a 4-wheel drive is required.*

 

Driving from SJO to Selva Armonia
(if transportation is not included in your retreat)

 

 

If you're driving, take your time and drive during the day, if possible.

Take the Coastanera/Highway 34 South from San Jose to Uvita. Approximately 3.5-4 hour drive. As you arrive into Uvita, there will be two BM supermarkets/”BM Supermercado“ both located on the left/East side of Highway 34.

Drive past the first BM (also next to BCR bank) and take note of the second (the Southern most) BM Market. You'll see the “BM Supermercado” and “Marina Ballena Restaurant” on your left.

Continue driving South past those landmarks about 400 meters, then take the first left onto a dirt road. You'll see the Selva Armonia sign and several others: “The Dome,” La Escuela Lider” and “La Cacatua Lodge.” From here it is a 5 kilometer (3.5 miles) drive to the gates of Selva Armonia.

Stay right at all forks in the road.

At the final fork, you'll see a sign on the right for Selva Armonia. Drive downhill approximately 500 meters to the large gates of Selva Armonia. The entrance will be on the right.

Drive down towards the property. Once you arrive at the "dead end" of the road, make a right towards the parking lot. Bienvenidos!
