Directions from Liberia International Airport
To Costa Rica Yoga Spa
From the airport exit take a right on to the main highway. Drive about an hour keeping
on the same road. You will pass through the towns of Filedelfia, Belen, and Santa
Cruz. After Santa Cruz you will see signs for Nicoya. Take a right into Nicoya.
Once in Nicoya, continue straight down the main road right through the center
of town. You'll stay on this road for nearly 30 kilometers. You will encounter
several turns along the way, but just stay on the main road. If you are in doubt,
look for signs pointing to either Nosara or Samara.
Be aware, there are two unmarked speed bumps about 5km south of Nicoya. Take it
slow over these! Wear your seat belt and do not speed. There will be pot holes,
pedestrians, bicycles, dogs and numerous other obstacles along the way - so you'll
need to pay attention.
All of the bridges along this stretch of highway are wide enough for only one vehicle
at a time. There will be a Ceda (Yield) sign on one side of every bridge. If you
have a ceda sign and there are cars coming the other direction, pull aside and let
oncoming traffic through.
After driving about 30 - 40 min you'll see a gas station on your left. Immediately
after the gas station, the main road turns to the left and you'll see a sign
for Nosara on your right. Slow WAY down and turn onto this road. From here you've
got about 25km on a gravel road. The road is occasionally graded, so depending on
its condition the drive should take between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours. During dry
season, it can be very dusty. If you see locals walking or riding a horse along
the way - slow down to avoid covering them in your dust.
After about 10km, the road comes to a T intersection where you'll see signs
for Nosara. Turn right and continue on your way. When you reach Playa Garza, you
are at the beach! This is a beautiful spot, and a great place to take a rest if
you need one. Otherwise, continue on over a hill and down to Playa Guiones.
You will come into Playa Guiones and see businesses like Coconut Harry’s Surf Shop
and National Car Rental. (The employees at National are very friendly and know us
well so if you are lost or need to call us you can certainly ask them for help.)
You are still a bit south of Nosara at this point. After a few more kilometers,
you'll see signs for Playa Pelada, continue straight ahead towards the village
of Nosara. On the right hand side you will see a large gas station, take your next
left, a ½ mile after the gas station. You will see a sign for Ostional or Playa
Ostional and also a sign for Costa Rica Yoga Spa. Continue on this road. You will
cross a bridge and take a right immediately after the bridge. You will see a sign
for Costa Rica Yoga Spa here as well. Follow this road until you come to another
“T”, take a left there.
About 400 meters down this road is our entrance on the right. You will see our sign
and a black iron gate and a wall with Mayan type design on it. Go up the drive on
your left you will see our reception office please stop there to check in. If it
is after hours and no one is there continue up the drive all the way to the top
