We’re located near the southern caribbean coast of Costa Rica near the villages Puerto Viejo de Talamance and Cahuita – have a look at the maps below to find out where we are located. We’ll provide transport from Puerto Viejo and Cahuita on all our tours – if you wanna drive yourself, please feel free – we’ll gonna show you the way! Please note, that you’ll definitely need a good 4×4 as the gravel road to the basecamp can be quite muddy when it rains!
All planes arrive in the capital of Costa Rica – San Jose. From there you have several options:
- Public bus: There’s daily public buses from San Jose – it’s currently 5500 colones (around 10 $) and takes 4-5 hours. The bus departs from terminal Atlantico Norte (locally known as “San Carlos”) at AM 6 & 10 / PM 12, 2 & 4. The ride is really scenic!
- Shuttle bus: You can book a private or semi-private (around 50 $ per person) shuttle with the excellent local operator Gecko Trail
- Car: If you have a car, you can drive yourself via Guapiles, Siquirres and Limon. You can rent the car with the great car rental operator Wild Rider in San Jose – they also have good 4x4s!
- Airplane: Nature Air operates daily flights from San Jose to Limon – the price is between 55 and 85 $ one way. From there you can take the bus or get a cab (around 50 $).
