Retreat location

The Waterfall Villas are 500 meters above sea level where the mountains rise very quickly, and we are only 5 minutes drive from the beaches, yet we are far enough into the rainforest that our plant and animal diversity is stunning and exotic. Also the mosquito count is much lower than on the beach.

Cascadas Farallas Waterfalls and the Waterfall Villas are 3 miles on paved road from Dominicals famous surf beach, yet secluded, and also close to a wide variety restaurants and night life. The exotic southern pacific beaches extend all the way to the Osa peninsula and are within easy reach by the Pan American highway.

This area is called the Costa Ballena or Whale Coast for the large number of migratory whales spotted here. The Waterfall Villas is close to 5 National Parks. The Corcovado National Park and Cano Island are day trips. If Osa Peninsula or Manuel Antonio and Quepos are in your itinerary we are a perfect base.

How to get there

Driving directions from San Jose Airport

To get to the Waterfall Villas you will go from the airport in San Jose directly to the new Pan-American highway. The total trip can be done in only 3 hours. Drive first to Jaco (enter Jaco in your GPS first or you will end up going on the wrong road), then passing Jaco you will drive past Quepos to Dominical. Now Waterfall Villas is just a 30 minute drive from Quepos / Manuel Antonio on the brand new highway.

Before arriving into Dominical Town there will be a big crossroad. Turn left, before the bridge, and then just drive 5 minutes towards San Isidro - Perez Zeledon in the direction North East. Look for the Balinese dragon banners and Cascadas Farallas Waterfall sign. Enter immediately on the right had side through our private bamboo entrance gate, drive down a short 50 meters on a gravel road to the marked parking area.

If you reach Reptilandia Park, you have gone 3 kilometers too far. Please turn there going back towards the beach, and look for our sign on the left side of the road - you will now turn left into the entrance. GPS: N 9 degrees 16.754, W 83 degrees 49.710 for an exact location (but don't use this in your car until you arrive to Dominical).

You can also drive from San Jose through the mountains past San Isidro and then another 45 minutes to the Waterfall Villas. Driving from San Jose through the mountains it is 3 hours to reach Cascadas Faralla Rainforests Waterfall Villas on a nicely paved road.

The trip includes a drive by the Gerardo de Dota coffee growing region, and the Quetzal biological reserve high in a mountain range. Thie main road is completely paved and a 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, unless you go off the main road and visit these regions in the rainy season.

You will leave San Jose airport and cross the city to reach Cartago, from there you will cross the mountain range to reach San Isidro, follow the signs to Dominical through San Isidros commercial center, continue further past a few villages, the last of which is Plantanillo.

After that you pass Reptilandia, a nature park, on the right, from there we are 3 kilometers on the left hand side of the road. Look for the Balinese dragon banners. From our bamboo entrance gate, drive down a short 50 meters on a gravel road to San Isidrothe marked parking area. If you arrive at the beach, turn around back 5 minutes and you will see our sign in front of the entrance.

Arrival by airplane

Economic flights with Spirit Airlines or Jet Blue, Copa, and NorthWest can get you here from most major cities in the USA. Other airlines such as American, Delta, and Continental also have frequent flights.

Your flight should arrive to the International airport at San Jose, Costa Rica (there is also an airport in Liberia, but that is 8 hours from the Southern region, and that would make sense of you would like to drive if making an itinerary around the country - best to leave from San Jose).

You can also now fly direct to Quepos on Sansa or Nature Air daily.
