These are some of the questions we frequently receive from our visitors. If you do not find an answer to any question you may have, please Contact Us and we'll provide an answer shortly.
Q: How do I get to Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge from San Jose?
The easiest way is to fly into San Jose, the Capital City of Costa Rica.
Then from San Jose, the best way to get to Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge is to fly via Sansa Airlines (506-2221-9414) 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.
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.

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 Samoa del Sur Hotel/Restaurant/Marina.
