Travelling by plane

Liberia International Airport

The best way to get to Playa Negra is to land at Liberia International airport. There are numerous new regular flights from the USA landing at Liberia airport: Delta Airlines from Atlanta, American Airlines from Miami, United Airlines from Houston and several others, all with good connections to other cities.

Liberia airport is only at 1h30 drive from Hotel Playa Negra. You can either rent a car at the airport (www.economyrentacar.com or www.alamocostarica.com) or we can arrange a taxi to pick you up and bring you to the hotel. The current rate is about $100 one way.

San Jose International Airport

The other option is to arrive at San Jose International Airport; the drive from there to our hotel takes about 4.5 hours.

Instead of driving, you can fly with a local airline to Tamarindo airport. From there you can rent a car or we can arrange transportation by taxi to the hotel. The drive takes 40 minutes and the cost is about $35.

The Costa Rican National Airlines, SANSA, leaves daily from San Jose International Airport, which makes connecting flights easy. Book ahead because flights are usually crowded. We can help with your reservations or you can contact SANSA directly at: www.flysansa.com/                             

Another local airline, Nature Air, has also daily flights between San Jose and Tamarindo. Its web-site is www.natureair.com/

Travelling by car

Traveling around Costa Rica in a rental car gives one the freedom to make day trips to other beaches and to National Parks. A 4x4 is not a necessity but it makes travel more comfortable especially during the rainy season, from June to November. Car rental agencies are in San Jose (by the airport), Liberia and Tamarindo. If you decide to rent a car once you are at the hotel, the rental companies will bring it here with no additional cost.

The shortest route from San Jose to Playa Negra is across the bridge on the Tempisque river. The trip will last 4 to 5 hours depending on traffic.

From San Jose airport follow directions towards San Ramon, Puntarenas and Liberia. After about 120 km (73 miles) on the way to Liberia, turn left at the Delta gas station, following the signs "Puente de la amistad de Taiwan".
After crossing the bridge, follow signs to Santa Cruz, where you should stop at a gas station to fill up, since there won't be any other gas station on the coast.

Just after exiting Santa Cruz towards Liberia, you will cross a bridge. Immediately past the bridge take the first road on the left following the signs to Playa Junquillal, Paraiso and others. After 17 km on a paved road, you will cross a bridge. Take the first turn to the left after the bridge and then the first turn to the right following signs to Paraiso and Playa Junquillal (you should see the fist signs to Playa Negra too).After another 17 km on the newly paved road, you will reach Paraiso. At Paraiso's soccer fiels, turn right following the sign to Playa Negra, and after 4.5 km, on a smaller dirt road, you will arrive. We are right on the beach ! 

From Liberia, drive towards Santa Cruz. Just before the bridge at the entrance of Santa Cruz, turn right and follow the signs to Playa Junquillal, Paraiso and others.
