Driving Directions from San Jose, Costa Rica

1. Take CA 1 north
 
2. Before Canas, turn left at signs for the Tempesqe Bridge also known as the "Puente de Amistad" a gift from Taiwan. This is highway 18.
 
3. After crossing the bridge, you'll come across Hiway 21. Go North (Right Turn), heading towards Santa Cruz.  When you get to Santa Cruz, you will be tempted to follow the sign to Tamarindo. Do not take this, it becomes a very bumpy dirt road and you'll likely get lost. Continue going towards Belen.
 
4. In Belen, turn left onto Highway 155 (two-lane road). You'll see many signs for hotels in Tamarindo, Flamingo, etc. that say "Turn here!". 
 
5. While on highway 155, you will come to T-intersection in Santa Ana. Go Left to continue on this road.
 
6. In about 20 KM, you'll be in Huacas. Continue going straight ahead. Do not turn towards Tamarindo.
 
7. In Matapalo, you'll come to a stop sign at the end of the soccor field. Go Left and cross the little bridge onto the dirt road.
 
8. This dirt road can be a bit bumpy, but you're now about 15 minutes from the hotel.
 
9. When you enter the Playa Grande area, continue past the pizzeria and you'll see the first of our signs pointing you to our neighborhood. You are now 2 1/2 KM away from your tropical beverage! Essentially, it is two lefts and you are here!

 

We are at the south end of the beach in a community called Palm Beach Estates.
