Flying to Costa Rica

Liberia International Airport

The best way to get to Playa Negra is to land at Liberia International airport. There are more and more regular flights landing at Liberia airport.

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 3 hours 45 minutes. You can rent a car at the airport or we can also arrange taxi transportation to Playa Negra for about $250 one way.                      

Driving to Playa Negra

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 airport to Playa Negra is the following:

Start towards San Ramon until the Dos Pinos factory and turn left to get to route 27 (see map #1). Follow route 27 until Puntarenas, then follow route 1 until the Delta gas station (at km 128 from the airport) then turn left on the road that will take you across the bridge on the Tempisque river. Then follow indications towards Nicoya and Santa Cruz (see map #2).

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 a 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 ! (See map #3)
