How to get thereSamasati is located 130 miles from San Jose’ international airport. It is a very scenic drive that will take about 4 hours. We strongly recommend if driving a rented vehicle, that you leave the city of San Jose around noon, the latest at 2 p.m. so you arrive to Samasati during daylight hours. From your starting point, get directions to the Guapiles/Limon Highway. This is a road that winds up into the cloudy mountains of Braulio Carrillo’s National Park, before crossing the Santa Clara flatlands into Puerto Limon. Once you get to Limon, please follow directions to Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. Samasati is 30 miles South of Limón, in the direction of Puerto Viejo. It is located in the Hone Creek village(‘s) area. About five miles after passing the Cahuita National Park’s entrance, you’ll find a street in your right hand side, just between the Gas Station of Hone Creek and the supermarket “Pali”. Samasati’s entrance’s gate is about 1/2 mile inland from the main road. Samasati’s restaurant and accommodations are located 1 mile uphill from the entrance(’s) gate. There is a reception(’s) area at the entrance gate. Here you will find out how to proceed with your 4×4 vehicle, or where to park your car (no fee) and wait for a Samasati vehicle if your vehicle is not a 4X4.
