How to get there

Driving direction from San Jose

  • Drive past the first BM (also next to BCR bank) and take note of the second (the southernmost), BM Market. You'll see the “BM Supermercado” and “Marina Ballena Restaurant” on your left.
  • Continue driving south past those landmarks about 400 meters, then take the first left onto a dirt road. You'll see the Selva Armonia sign and several others: “The Dome,” “La Escuela Lider” and “La Cacatua Lodge.” From here, it is a five kilometer (3.5 miles) drive to the gates of Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge.
  • Stay right at all forks in the road.
  • At the final fork, you'll see a sign on the right for Selva Armonia. Drive downhill approximately 500 meters to the large gates of Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge. The entrance will be on the right.
  • Drive down towards the property. Once you arrive at the "dead end" of the road, make a right towards the parking lot.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO). Transfer from and to the airport is included. Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge will pick you up from the airport.

Arrival by bus

The most economical option is the public bus to Uvita. The ride takes four and a half hours and will deliver you to the center of Uvita. To get to Tracopa, you'll take a 25 - 30 USD taxi to Delio Morales Bus Station, also known as the Tracopa Bus Station, and purchase a bus ticket (un billete) to the town of Uvita. Ticket cost is around 10 USD.

Arrival by taxi

Across the street from the Uvita bus station is the BM Supermarket. During the day, it should be fairly easy to find a 4 x 4 taxi. Taxis to Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge cost around 15 - 20 USD. Please let Selva Armonia Retreat Center & Eco-Lodge know in advance if you need a taxi arranged for you.
