Driving Directions from Juan Santamaria International Airport 

The drive from the San José airport (Juan Santamaria International Airport) to Manuel Antonio will take about 2 hours and 30 minutes and is fully paved with the new highway in place. Drive defensively and be aware when two lanes become one, "CEDA" means "Yield".

Once on Route 1 (Inter American Highway) - follow signs to San Ramon, and continue straight ahead for about 10 km. After the second bridge crossing, get in the right lane and take the next exit (Route 3) for Jaco / Quepos / Manuel Antonio. There is also a sign here for Punta Leona and Atenas. Turn left at the stop sign, crossing back over Route 1.

Follow Route 3 for about 3 km. Look for a large Christian church on the left and then a soccer field and make a left on the road immediately after it. There are no signs and it's a secondary road, so don't think you've made a mistake. It's currently the best connection to the toll highway from the airport. Drive for another 3 km through this somewhat winding road. Once you arrive at the highway intersection turn left BEFORE the highway. Again, there are no signs here yet. Be careful as it's a narrow two-way gravel access road. After some 300 meters you will arrive at a roundabout. Make a right following the highway signs to Orotina / Atenas.

Drive on the highway through 2 toll booths. Then, take the next right exit to Route 34; follow signs for Jaco /Quepos. This exit forms a loop and then you bypass a roundabout to continue straight to Jaco (another 36 km).

Follow Route 34 (also called Costanera) for a while and you will cross over the Tárcoles River Bridge - there are usually a few cars parked before/after the bridge since it is a popular viewing point for the crocodiles in and around the river.

Follow the signs to Jaco and Manuel Antonio. At 157.6 km, you will come to a “Y” in the road. You will see a sign with Quepos, Manuel Antonio bearing off to the right.

Coming into Quepos, you will cross a bridge that overlooks the ocean and you will begin to see more commercial properties and then

As you actually enter into Quepos you will cross a short. One lane bridge and you will see the Marina in the background.

Head towards the Marina Pez Vela . At the entrance of the Marina you will see our sign on the left. Turn left here.  You are about 300 yards from our front Gate. Just follow the signs . At the top of the hill you will come into a small residential area and a narrow street. Go to the end of this street  50 yards , and you will see our gate at the end. Finally You are Here!!!
