Getting to The Lodge

The 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 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.
