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.

    "Life Changing"
    My stay at SamaSati was a life changing experience! It exceeded my wildest expectations of experiencing the rainforest up close and personal. All of the staff here are very accommodating, genuine, knowledgeable, experienced and kind. They all worked hard to make my stay everything I was looking for. The chef is world class and he made every meal unique and amazing. It's very peaceful and unlike anything I've experienced before. I hope to return one day! Facebook Review

    "Charming"
    This fantastic place has a charm, a soul, and an amazing soulkeeper! The Charm is strategically placed authentic and very comfortable living spaces, surrounded by unbelievably beautiful jungle mountain nature! The Soul is the Caretaker, Scott, whose always smiling presence feels so very welcomed even at 5am! And of course, the Soulkeeper, Stephanie, the guru, the mentor, the inspirational friend you would want to keep for life! Thank you Samaseti! Facebook Review

    "Accomodating"
    I haven't even gotten to Samasati yet, but I have had multiple questions as a nursing mother who will be away from her son. Riyanna has been SO accommodating! She has been prompt with all answers to my questions, and has made arrangements that I thought wouldn't be possible. Thank you so much, and I can't wait to get there! Facebook Review

    "Pleasant"
    Great view, relaxing, friendly staff. Dinner costs extra. I was not aware of it till a few days after I checked in. You will need a taxi to and from the retreat unless you leave at 10am and return at 3pm which is when they offer the free shuttle. Taxi drivers do not drive up the hill. You must either call or use the radio at the bottom to call and have one of their drivers come down and get you. Great nature, wildlife, yoga classes, and trails for hiking. Google Review
