Getting Here


All boat transfers are done 7:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Our normal boat pick up time is 9:00 - 9:30 and leaving Saladero by 8:30. If you are arriving later than 11:00 you will need to spend the night and we will pick you up the next morning. On our links page are listed some hotels we have stayed at and recommend in Pto Jimenez and Golfito. 

If you have an early 6:30 arrival time, we will not be able to meet you at the airport. You can go to a local restaurant and we will meet you 7:30-8:00. 

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 leave Saladero by 8:30.

We recommend Toyota Rent a Car

Reliable service and cars in very good condition.
