How to get thereDriving directions from San Jose Coming from San Jose, you take the Highway 1 / Interamericana. Drive northwest for about two hours in the direction of Puntarenas. It is one of the bigger towns outside the Central Valley so you shouldnt have any problems finding it. From there you take a ferry to Paquera, which is situated on the Nicoya peninsula. In high season, there is a ferry leaving for Paquera about every two hours. Once you are on the ferry, you can enjoy the sun and scenery for about one hour and 15 minutes. Normally they also offer little snacks and drinks during the passage. From Paquera it takes another one and a half hours until you get to Mal Pais. To get to your destination, you take the road to Playa Tambor, but continue straight to Cobano. From Cobano you follow the road until you get to Playa El Carmen. On the right hand side you will see a big sign saying Franks Place. This is the intersection that divides Playas El Carmen and Santa Teresa in the north from Mal Pais in the south. To get to Indigo Yoga Resort, you take a left turn at this intersection and follow the road for a little more than five minutes until you see the Indigo Yoga Resort entrance and coffee shop on your left hand side Arrival by airplane Please book your flight to arrive at Juan Santamara International Airport (SJO). To get to the Mal Pais and Santa Teresa area, you can fly from San Jos to Playa Tambor. The flight takes about 25 minutes. Arrival by bus In San Jose, you will have to find the bus station of Puntarenas. Since the bus stations to the various destinations are located in different areas of the town, please ask for directions there. The bus to Puntarenas takes about two and a half hours until you get to the bus station in Paquera. From there, you take a taxi to the ferry port. Once in Paquera, you can arrange a taxi transfer to Mal Pais or take another bus to El Carmen. From there, you can catch a local taxi to Indigo Yoga Resort. Arrival by ferry You can drive from San Jos to Puntarenas and take the ferry to Paquera. From there, drive south through Tambor to Cbano. From there you can drive to Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, or Manzanillo, as well as Montezuma. Its another 20-30 minutes to Mal Pais from Cbano. The total time from San Jose to Malpais is around four to six hours, mostly depending on how long you have to wait for the ferry in Puntarenas. Depending on the season, the ferry leaves every two to three hours. Arrival by shuttle A shuttle transfer from San Jose or other destinations in Costa Rica can be arranged. For more information, please send Indigo Yoga Resort an inquiry. Arrival by taxi A taxi from Playa Tambo to the hotel can be arranged. For more information, please send Indigo Yoga Resort an inquiry.
