Arrival directions to Dominical

United States air carriers serve Costa Rica nonstop from all major gateways. Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas, Charlotte, New York City and Newark are just some of the major US cities that serve either Juan Santamaria International Airport in central San Jose, or Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia in the north part of the country.  Juan Santamaria International Airport is the more convenient of the two to use to reach Manu Retreats in Dominical.

There are a couple ways to get to Manu Retreats in Dominical: 

Pick up at the Juan Santamaria International Airport:

We will wait for you at the airport and drive you down to the coast. A air-conditioned bus (max 6 – 10 persons) picks you up at the airport and brings you directly to Manu.

Flying to Quepos :

After arriving in San Jose you can take a Sansa single-engine commuter flight to Quepos.

If you come from a other destination in Costa Rica like Arenal, Limon, Nosara, Tambor, Palma Sur and Tamarindo or even from Bocas del Torry in Panama you can use the Interconnections from Nature Air.

For bigger groups (5-18 pax) or out of convenience you might look into a Nature Air charter flight from San Jose to Quepos.

Total travel time from San Jose: Air 20 minutes; Ground 30 minutes.

Driving from San Jose to Dominical:

If you like long leisurely drives through the mountains, you’ve come to the right country! The roads are in good shape, but plan on 3 hours to cross over the mountains and arrive at the beach. The drive from San José takes you through stunning scenery on the Pan-American Highway. You can drive through high mountain passes, and the country’s largest cloud forest, with the worlds last remaining, sustainable habitat for the endangered quetzal.

We can arrange for the rental car company to pick you up from the Airport in San Jose and you take the drive over the mountains to Dominical yourself in your rented 4×4.

Total travel time from San Jose by car: about 3 hours.
