Although the house is only a 3 hour drive (without stops and traffic) from San José, you should take into consideration an hour to clear immigration, baggage and customs, another hour to collect your rental car, and then traffic, restroom coffee and grocery stops. You should calculate at least 6 hours from landing to arriving at the house. We strongly discourage you to drive in Costa Rica at night and it gets dark at around 6.00pm all year round. Therefore, your flight should arrive before midday, otherwise, we suggest spending the night in San José and driving out the following morning.
If renting a car, we strongly recommend that you reserve a 4x4 vehicle. You will not have any problems getting to the house, but you might find the driveway challenging and limit where you can drive to in the area, such as the hot springs and the Cloudbridge Reserve.
Although the water from the faucet is potable, we recommend that you buy water from the supermarket, if you are at all concerned about the quality of the water for drinking.
We have pets that live in our own house on the property (3 dogs and 2 cats). Please do not feed any of the animals and remember to send any of them home by latest 9.00pm. :) Thanks
