Driving Directions from San Jose International Airport (SJO): (4-5 hours)
From the airport, you go on the old road, not the new toll road:

From San Jose Airport, take the Panamerican Highway North. Look for sign towards San Ramon.
Keep going following the signs to Esparza. Pass through Esparza and keep going straight following the signs to Limonal.
In Limonal there is a new Subway on the right, and a Delta gas station on the left. Turn left here, following the signs to Nicoya, and the Puente Amistad Tempisque (Tempisque Bridge). Cross the bridge and keep going straight.
There is one fork in the road that is poorly marked on the portion of road past the bridge. You want to go left at the fork. If you go right, there is a gas station but then the road dead ends in a small town.
Keep going until you hit the T south of Nicoya. Turn right following the signs to Nicoya and Santa Cruz.
Pass the turn off to Nicoya where there are traffic lights, heading towards Santa Cruz, pass by Santa Cruz (one more traffic light) and keep going to Belen. There is a gas station on the corner in Belen. Turn left following the signs to Tamarindo/ Playa Grande (Parque Nacional Marino de las Baulas). These signs for the Parque Nacional Marino las Baulas have a drawing of a turtle, they are brown with white writing, and refer to Playa Grande.
Follow this road without turning off. After around 20 minutes, you will pass another gas station called “Oasis” on your left.
Continue going straight along this road. You will go up over a mountain after the oasis gas station, you will go down the other side of the mountain, and about 2km along, will see a turn off to the left for
Tamarindo. DO NOT take the left to Tamarindo!
Stay straight. You will see Super Compro supermarket on your right around 200 meters past this intersection.
Stay straight on this road, passing by the turn-off to the right for Flamingo, Conchal etc.
When you get to the next t-intersection, you are in Matapalo. On your right will be a soccer field.
Turn left here pass over the little bridge, continue on the paved road for another 8-10 minutes.
You will go over another mountain, continue along until you come to a little more of a township. Pass by Kike’s place (Kee-Kays) on your left (down the hill, there is a big rancho style roof).
Take the first left turn at the big sign and the little school of Playa Grande is on your left.
From here continue to the stop sign where you will see a statue of a leatherback turtle.
Take a left and we are the fifth hotel on the left.


Driving from Liberia International Airport (LIR): (1 hour)

Once you reach the T when you are leaving the airport road, turn RIGHT.

Stay on this road for around 20 minutes until you reach a gas station called “Oasis” on your left.
