Getting Here


All boat transfers are done 7:00 AM to 12:00 Noon. If you are arriving later than that you will need to spend the night and we will pick you up the next morning. On our links page are some hotels we have stayed at and recommend in both towns. Do not make any flights leaving on the very early flights (6:30) as we would have to leave before the sun comes up and cannot run the boat in the dark. If flying, the best arrival and departure times are from 9 to 9:30 am. If you have a late afternoon flight we will need to take you to town by 10:00.

Where to Meet?

If you are flying, we will meet you at the airport in either Pto Jimenez (preferred) or Golfito, take a taxi to the public dock and then our boat to Saladero Eco Lodge.

If you are driving you can leave your car in town at a secure area and we will meet you  at the public dock or at the hotel watching your car and then take our boat to Saladero Eco Lodge.

From Drake Bay

If coming from Drake Bay or Chackarita by bus we can pick you up at Playa Blanca on the beach. This can save you (and us) hours of travel time. Get off the bus in La Palma and take a taxi to Playa Blanca
