How to Get to Lookout Inn Lodge in the Costa Rican Rainforest

Getting to Costa Rica is easy! Our Juan Santamaria International Airport, located near our capital city, San José, is Costa Rica’s largest international airport and has many non-stop flights arriving and departing daily.

Once you arrive in San José, you have multiple transportation options. How you get to our remote beach and jungle eco lodge entirely on your available time, your sense of adventure and the amount of money you wish to spend.

The following options should help you decide which form of transport is best for you.


With the closing of NATURE AIR, there is now just one airline company (SANSA AIR) that services Puerto Jimenez on a daily basis with a flight time of approximately 1 hour. Note: with all flights, advanced reservations are definitely recommended.



Private 4WD Taxi

Private Taxi is $80.00 one-way (for whole taxi, not pp). These are 4x4D pickup trucks with tarps & padded seats in the back.


The colectivo is about $9.00pp, leaves in front of bus station twice a day 6am & 1:30pm, everyday including Sundays.

Rental Car

Rent a car and drive to Puerto Jimenez and then on to Carate. Outside of Puerto Jimenez, there are too many rent-a-car places to mention, but in Puerto Jimenez, we can recommend Solid Car Rental or Toyota Rent a Car. Note: Do not rent a 4WD drive car  - you need a 4WD truck or SUV – If you don’t, you’ll regret it!
