DRIVING BY CAR
Driving from San Jose: The drive from San Jose is spectacular in terms of natural beauty, but very tiresome. Try to leave early and make frequent stops on the way. Approximate travel time is 7-10 hours depending on stops, sightseeing, weather and road conditions.
By road from San José take the Inter-American (Pan Am ) Highway ( Ruta 2 ) to San Isidro de General ( 2 - 3.5 hrs ) . An interesting rest stop for refreshments is at Ojo de Agua ( Km # 76 , 1 -1.5 hrs ) Continue through Buenos Aires ( 1 - 1.5 Hrs ) to Palmar Norte ( 1 - 1.5 hrs ). Thirty-three kilometers past Palmar Norte take a right turn at Chacarita. At Chacarita you will see a service station by the name of "Corcovado". The right turn to Puerto Jiménez is directly after the service station. On this paved road you will drive 44 km to Rincón where the pavement ends. 33 more kms will take you through La Palma and eventually on to Puerto Jiménez ( 1 - 2 hrs ). Arriving in Puerto Jimenez follow the signs for Parrot Bay Village, we are located on the beach between the airstrip and the public pier. We look forward to seeing you. Have a good trip.

Driving from Quepos or Dominical: Drive South along the coast road (on route 34) until Ciudad Cortés. You will turn left before actually getting into the center of town and follow the road to Palmar Norte. At Palmar Norte turn right (South) on
the Carretera Interamericana. Thirty-three kilometers past Palmar Norte take a right turn at Chacarita. At Chacarita you will see a service station by the name of "Corcovado". The right turn to Puerto Jiménez is directly after the service station. On this paved road you will drive 44 km to Rincón where the pavement ends. 33 more kms will take you through La Palma and eventually on to Puerto Jiménez ( 1 - 2 hrs ). Arriving in Puerto Jimenez follow the signs for Parrot Bay Village, we are located on the beach between the airstrip and the public pier.

CAR RENTAL
Solid Car Rental has more than 17 years of experience in operational car rentals in Costa Rica. The company has a location in Puerto Jimenez just in front of the airstrip. Check out their extensive rental car fleet.. They will ask you to go with them to personally check the car when you pick it up. This is a seemingly pointless exercise for North Americans but bear with them and pay attention. They will note every little scratch, nick and dent in the car, bumper, windows and mirrors with painful detail. Check for dents in the tire rims and make sure there are a spare tire, jack and tools. You may be charged for any surface defect that is not marked when you return the car or anything that is missing. They will charge you at USA body shop prices. Even the very best companies do this in Costa Rica.

Advice: You may frequently get lost or feel uncertain. Ask for road information or directions only from persons who are driving. Don’t ask pedestrians or people on horseback for directions. They will seem very helpful and friendly (as are all Ticos); they will smile and give you terrible advice. 4x4 drivers and truck drivers are best. People who work at gas stations are not good sources of road information. Have a good trip and watch out for the potholes!

WE CAN ARRANGE IN-COUNTRY FLIGHTS FOR YOU
We prefer to make your in-country flights arrangements for you. We can guarantee the reservation more easily and more securely from here and can access space on the in-country airlines when no one else can do it.

Please provide those to us if you would us to arrange the domestic flights for you.

NATURE AIR 2008-2009:
We can arrange the round-trip flights leaving San Jose at 6:00, 6:10, 8:30, 10:50 or 3:40 on NATURE AIR from San Jose - Pto Jiménez - San Jose. The cost for NATURE AIR is $115 one-way or $229 round trip per person.

NATURE AIR AND INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT ON THE SAME DAY:
No problem about your flights. You can take Nature Air that arrives in San Jose at 11:00 AM and make a connection with your international flight that leaves at 2:00 PM. There have been many people that have made this connection with Nature Air and international flights. Nature Air, however does NOT RECOMMEND that people who fly with them schedule their international flights for the same day. The reason for this advisory is that they do not want to be faced with the additional pressure of people demanding a solution or a refund IF SOMETHING goes wrong with their schedule.
