How to get there
Driving directions from San Jose
The drive from San Jose will take about 4 to 5 hours, depending on how many KM per hour you are travelling.
You need to first drive to Puntarenas, which is where you will have to take a ferry. That drive is about 1- 1.5 hours from San Jose. The best thing to do is to ask your car rental company for the best way to get to Puntarenas, depending on where you are located in San Jose.
Once there you will take the ferry that leaves from Puntarenas port to Paquera port. The ferry is called Ferry Tambor, but it does not go to Tambor; it is just called that. The ferry crossing will take you about an hour and is very scenic and allows you a little down time relaxation time from the long drive.
Once you get to Paquera all you have to do is follow the other cars, and follow the signs that say "Malpas" or "Santa Teresa".
The paved road will end in Cobano, and from there to us you will ride on a gravel road. A four wheel drive vehicle is strongly recommended as the roads tend to get very bumpy. It is about a 1 hour and 20 minute drive. All you do is proceed straight with no turns.
Once you get to the famous Malpas and Santa Teresa crossroad (you will notice our only big shopping center that we have) you must take a right toward Santa Teresa and drive for about 5 km (your car will mark the distances in km).
Pranamar will be on the left hand side facing the stunning ocean. This view appears about 4 km into your drive. You will see our sign, you cannot miss it.
The hotel is just 200 meters past that ocean side part of the road.
Arrival by airplane
This is easiest/fastest way to get to Pranamar. There are 2 companies in the country. Sansa Airlines flies from/to SJO international airport, and Nature Air flies from/to Pavas Airport, 20 minutes away from SJO Airport. Please check their schedules online to see if it fits your itinerary.
Our staff can also book any flight for you if needed. If their schedule does not fit your itinerary, another very good option is to charter a plane, which becomes monetarily convenient also when it is 4+ people.
Using a private charter will allow you more luggage kgs than the 30 pounds that are allowed per person by the local public airlines, plus we use Costa Rica's only U.S. FAA Part 129-approved airline. You have to fly into Tambor, and that flight takes only 25 minutes. From there, we will arrange a taxi for you, or you can have a car rental meet you and do the drive yourself. It is a 50 minute drive to Pranamar.
