Driving directions from San Jose or Juan Santamaria Airport (old road)

  • From San Jose or Juan Santamaria Airport, there are two ways to go. The new highway cuts off about 15 minutes but does involve a dirt road for about 15 minutes of the journey
  • Directions for the slower, meandering but paved all the way road
  • Take the road to Ciudad Colon. Once you're in Ciudad Colon, look out for a sign saying "no hay paso" that means you're going on to a one way street
  • Instead turn right at the gas station and then left at the next street and you will see a green AmaTierra sign up high (on a car wash building) stating you are 35 km from the hotel
  • Go to the top of the hill through the town of Cuidad Colon and turn left before the dirt road
  • You will see a University of La Paz (Peace) sign on the left. Make sure you follow the road out of town (do not turn right to the U. of Peace), but veer right towards Puriscal and Turubari Park
  • After about 20 minutes, you will arrive in Puriscal
  • About 300 meters past the gas station on the right, you will see a sign for Turrubaris/Orotina/Jaco - turn left in front of the Red Cross/Ice building.
  • Follow about 3 blocks past the church, and just after the stop light you will see a white sign that will say Turrubaris/Orotina/Jaco then you must turn right after the sign
  • Then, you will follow the signs to Amatierra/Turubari Park. The hotel is located 17 kilometers or 20 minutes once you leave Puriscal.
  • We are on the right side of the road 2 kilometers before San Pablo and you will see several Green AmaTierra signs to let you know you are close. Always know that if you follow the signs to Turrubari Park that you are on the right track.
  • It is easy to find and the road is paved the entire way - simply look for the long bamboo fence and wooden gate. If the gate is closed, just honk and the guard will open the gate

Driving directions from San Jose or Juan Santamaria Airport (new highway)

  • Start out the same way as above, from the airport.
  • Once you pass Escazu, Outback, and the Forum, you will get to where you need to make a decision to go toward Ciudad Colon, or towards Guacima and Orotina. *You can choose to go straight ahead on the New Highway to Orotina, which is a toll road. You will need colones (though they do make change for dollars, don't worry)
  • Go straight on this road, past 2 tolls, the last one is Atenas. Past Pan de Azucar too, exit at Escobal
  • At the top of the exit, turn left, then right at the end, onto the frontage road. Follow this to its end (about 1.2 km) and turn left
  • You stay on this little dirt road for about 15 minutes, over a 1 lane bridge, until you eventually get to a town called San Pablo, with a town square on the left
  • Go straight past the town about 2-3 blocks and you'll see Soda Francini on the right. Turn left there, toward Puriscal.
  • AmaTierra will be on your left side about 1 km up the road
