Drive

If you prefer to rent a car, most major companies have offices in San Jose, Liberia and some in Tamarindo.  We stronly recommend working with Adobe.

Fly

Most everyone flies to Costa Rica, and it’s into one of two airports: LIR in Liberia or SJO in San Jose. In order to get the most of your Playa Grande vacation, we encourage our visitors to fly into LIR. SJO is often less expensive than LIR; however, SJO to Playa Grande is often a four to five hour drive. LIR, on the other hand, is only an hour away. Visitors also have the option of flying domestic flights into the Liberia airport.  PLEASE NOTE THE TAMARINDO AIRPORT IS CLOSED

Bus

If you are flying into San Jose and would rather catch a bus you can book your tickets at www.graylinecostarica.com   The public bus only comes into Playa Grande twice a day; 7:00am and 2:00pm

Driving directions from San Jose, Liberia and Tamarindo:

From San Jose (Use these great maps of Costa Rica)

From the airport get on the Pan American Highway (Hwy 1) north for approximately 2 hours toward Liberia/Penas Blancas (follow the road signs). You can follow signs for Tamarindo starting almost right away. Just after passing Matapalo (may or may not be apparent), turn left toward the Tempisque Bridge (also called Puente Amistad de Taiwan) – be watching for the sign.

Once you cross the bridge, you continue going straight until you come to a “T” intersection, at which you turn right, toward Nicoya and Tamarindo. Now heading north, continue until Belen, where you turn left toward Tamarindo and Playa Grande. 

After about 20 minutes, you will go over a steep hill and come to a cross-roads town called Huacas. The signs will say to turn left to go to Tamarindo, but you will continue straight for another 5-8 minutes until you reach a small town with a soccer field called Matapalo.

Following the signs to Playa Grande, you will turn left immediately after passing the soccer field. This road will bring you directly into Playa Grande.

When you arrive in Playa Grande, follow the signs towards Rip Jack Inn. The specific location is 100 meters to the south of the MINAE office (there is a big turtle statue and a stop sign. This is where you turn left. We are the first building on the left after making the turn, at about 100 meters.
