Getting to The LodgeThe easiest way to get here is to fly into San Jose, the Capitol City of Costa Rica. From San Jose, the best way to get to Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is to fly (45 - 50 minutes) 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. We are happy to help you with flight and transportation arrangements.
Important: The Nicuesa transfer boat cannot pick up/drop off guests any later than 03:00 pm on the day of your arrival or departure due to the water and weather conditions in the late afternoon. WE WILL PICK UP GUESTS FROM FLIGHTS THAT ARRIVE LATE, but CANNOT PICK UP GUESTS AT FLIGHTS THAT ARE SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE AFTER 03:00 PM. Therefore, please make sure your flights, private transfers and/or any other method of arrival/departure are scheduled before that time.
Charter FlightsThis is a great option for families or groups of 4 or more and for people that want to travel more directly between lodge and the many amazing areas in Costa Rica. Recommended companies are:
DrivingYou may also drive or arrange ground transporation to Golfito. The road between San Jose and Golfito is well maintained and the drive time from SJ Airport is about 4.5 hours. It is recommended that you park in the secured lot at the Fish Hook Marina, where we will pick you up.
