Reaching Osa Mountain Village Resort from San José

You have three ways to reach the resort from the San Jose area. They are: by ground shuttle, by commuter flight or by driving yourself. If you choose to fly you can rent a car in the local area to be mobile after you arrive. While taxis are quite plentiful, practical and economical to use in the San Jose area they can be expensive to use in the southern zone and a lot of time is spent waiting for them. If you are traveling light we recommend using the commuter flight to get to Palmar Sur and have a rental car waiting for you there when you arrive to use in the area. If you want to save a few dollars use the shuttle service to get down to Uvita and then rent a car there and continue south to the resort about 35 minutes away.

The drive to the South Pacific Zone can be traveled by one of two ways…

The first route is down the new toll road (the fastest) Autopista del Sol (Route 27) from San José across the mountains southwest to the Pacific Coast near Jacó (2 hours) and then south on the newly paved Costanera Sur Highway (flat and straight) south past the village of Ojochal. The Osa Mountain Adventures Tour office is just past the new Osa hospital facility near Cuidad Cortez both on the right hand side of the highway halfway between kilometer marker 196 and 197.

The older route (the most beautiful) takes you east through the city of Cartago and then taking Route 2 traveling up to an elevation over 10,000 feet into the Talamanca Mountain Range through the cloud forests of El Quetzal National Park and then down to the small city of San Isidro El General – also commonly referred to as Pérez Zeledón. Then taking the road (Route 243) southwest through Barú to the beach town of Domincal and then south along the Costanera Sur Highway (Route 34) following the same directions as the first route above to the Osa Mountain Adventures Tour office.
