We are conveniently located 20 minutes from San Isidro del General, the largest city in Costa Rica's southern zone, and positioned just southwest of Cerro Chirripó, Costa Rica's highest mountain.

Flights are carbon-neutral and operated by Sansa Airlines twice a day, four days a week. Flight schedules can be found on the airline website, or you may contact us for assistance.

Alternatively, you can take a private charter flight directly to or from our on-property airstrip from one of Costa Rica's international airports - Juan Santamaria Airport (35 mins) or Liberia International Airport (1 hour). We'll greet you with a refreshing beverage and a cool towel.
 

Arrange a private Driver

Allow us to arrange a private shuttle service for you (additional fee applies). We'll meet you at Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO), Liberia International Airport (LIR), or from anywhere else in Costa Rica and bring you directly to the retreat.
