JOURNEY



Ways to get to the camp

BY CAR

We strongly recommend a 4x4 so you can travel worry-free on the Costa Rican roads,especially in the green season. The roads in Costa Rica can be challenging. Also be prepared for an amazing lack of signage to help you along the way !

From San Jose:

There are now two ways to drive to the ferry terminal in Puntarenas.The new Caldera Highway is about an hour faster than the old route via the Interamericana Highway and will cost you about $4 in tolls along the way..

Caldera Highway : Once you leave the airport, follow the road straight, towards San Jose centro and then follow the signs to Escazu. You will eventually pass a Nissan dealership and the large LaSabana Park on your right hand side. Soon after you will get to the traffic-light intersection with a McDonalds on the far left corner and a Universal store on the right; you will take a right hand turn there. This is the new Autopista del Sol Caldera Highway (Highway #27). Stay on this highway, following signs for Caldera and Puntarenas. You will want to take the ferry to Paquera. As ferry times are constantly changing, it is always a good idea to call ahead at 2661-2084 to obtain the most up-to-date ferry times, or ask us to do so close to your travel date.

The “Tambor I” is the smaller 30-car ferry and the “Tambor II” is the larger 170-car ferry. If possible, aim for the Tambor II. Not only is it bigger, but much more comfortable. After the 1-hour and a half scenic ferry ride, you arrive in Paquera. From there you will drive west through Tambor and Cobano, then follow the signs to “Mal País/Santa Teresa”. In the crossroads of town (“Frank’s Place”) you will turn right and follow the main road until Meli Melo Hotel located around 500m north of the soccer field. 
This is about a five-hour trip, not including any wait for the ferry.

Interamericana Way : You will drive northwest along the Interamericana Highway, about two hours until you come to the port town of Puntarenas. You will want to take the ferry to Paquera. As ferry times are constantly changing, it is always a good idea to call ahead at 2661-2084 to obtain the most up-to-date ferry times, or ask us to do so close to your travel date. The “Tambor I” is the smaller 30-car ferry and the “Tambor II” is the larger 170-car ferry. If possible, aim for the Tambor II. Not only is it bigger, but much more comfortable. After the 1-hour and a half scenic ferry ride, you arrive in Paquera. From there you will drive west through Tambor and Cobano, then follow the signs to “Mal País/Santa Teresa”. In the crossroads of town (“Frank’s Place”) you will turn right and follow the main road until Meli Melo Hotel located around 500m north of the soccer field.
This is about a six-hour trip, not including any wait for the ferry.

From Liberia:

You will drive south towards Guardia, then continue to Santa Cruz, Nicoya, towards Carmona, Jicaral, Lepanto, then Playa Naranjo. You will continue along the same road through Paquera, Tambor, then Cobano. Follow the signs to “Mal País/Santa Teresa”. In the crossroads of town (“Frank’s Place”) you will turn right and follow the main road until Meli Melo Hotel located around 500m north of the soccer field.
