General Info

How to get here?
The capital San José is served by many airlines company.
From the airport of San José you can access many tourist sites from the Pacific coast to the Caribbean coast and vice versa. There are many bus lines that connect the different regions at very affordable prices.
There are different bus stations depending on your final destination. Check at the point of departure to make sure that the bus serves the place you are going to.
To reach Finca Ardilla, you must take the bus at the "San Carlos" station in the direction of Puerto-Viejo de Talamanca and get off at this stop. We can arrange your transfer upon arrival.
If you don't want to take the bus, you can rent a car, but the prices vary a lot between the different companies, the season and the type of vehicle. We advise you to study the offers before your departure.
Do not rely on the mileage to organize your trip. It is not uncommon to take 5 hours to travel the 220 kilometers from San Jose to Puerto-Viejo de Talamanca, and this is the case throughout the country, transportation times are very long.
If your flight arrives late in the evening, we suggest that you spend a night (or more) in San Jose, as it is safer to take the road during the day and especially it allows you to enjoy the view of beautiful landscapes.
Another good reason to stay a while in San José is to discover its cultural offer in terms of museums: art museum, insects museum, pre-Columbian gold museum...
San José is the starting point for many excursions. One of the most popular excursions around the city is to the Irazu volcano in the morning, followed in the afternoon by a visit to the ruins of Ujarras and its lake.
To prepare your trip there are many tourist guides on the destination and well documented websites to give you ideas for itineraries and excursions. The tourist sites are less frequented in the "green season".
In the area around the Finca, we can help and advise you. Do not hesitate to ask us. We have a large choice of excursions from the most classic to the most original.
