How do I get to Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge from San Jose?

The easiest way is to fly into San Jose, the Capitol City of Costa Rica.
From San Jose, the best way to get to Play a Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is to fly via Sansa Airlines or Nature Air to Golfito or Puerto Jimenez. We will meet you at one of these airports and take you to the lodge.
Flight time is approximately 50 minutes. You can reserve your flights on
line, or we will be happy to help you with these arrangements.

Charter flights

Are also a great option to consider, especially for families or groups of 4 or more people. This is a great option for people that want to go directly to and from the lodge to many areas in Costa Rica and not via San José. Recommended companies are.:

• Aviones Taxi Aereo S.A
• Paradise Air Costa Rica

We can help you arrange these flights.


You may also drive your car to Golfito or arrange ground transportation. It is recommended that you park your car in a secured lot at the Fish Hook Marina. We will pick you up at the marina.

The drive time is approximately 5 hours. The road between San Jose and Golfito is well maintained.
