This is Dave the caretaker for Casa Amore in Santa Teresa, CR. We look forward to your visit. Here is a little travel info for you....

The drive from San Jose to Santa Teresa will be around 4 to 6 hours. You have to drive to Puntarenas, which is where you will have to take a ferry. The best thing is to ask you car rental company on the best way to get to puntarenas, depending on where you are in San Jose. You have to catch a ferry that leaves from Puntarenas port to Paquera port. The ferry is called ferry Tambor. You can check their schedule at if you want to guarantee a spot in a ferry you cannot make a reservation, you just have to show up and get in line early…about 1 hour early. The drive from San Jose to the ferry is about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Once you get to Paquera all you have to do is follow all the other cars, It is about 1 hour and 20 minutes drive….you just drive in a straight line thru Cobano , once thru Cobano there will be a left turn towards Mal Pais, Santa Teresa. Follow the road to the famous “malpais and santa teresa” crossroad (you will notice the only shopping center that we have) you must take a right towards Santa Teresa and drive for about 2 km, past the 2 small bridges we are on the left (beach side) in front of Casa las Gemelas, if you pass the soccer field, you have gone to far. Check in is at 3pm and check out at 11am.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further. We are looking forward to having you here.
