BY RENTAL CAR: You can easily and conveniently rent a car right at the airport or make arrangements online prior to travel. Upon picking up your vehicle in the metropolitan area, drive west on Hwy 1 to Puntarenas and board the ferry to Paquera.

There is also a toll road, Highway 27, from San Jose to Caldera, near Puntarenas. This is a quicker and more convenient way to reach the ferry landing in Puntarenas, although not as panoramic. It costs about 3,070 colones (just over six dollars) to use the toll road from the Central Valley all the way to Caldera.

The ferry is operated by Naviera Tambor and the ferry schedules may vary seasonally. You may get updated rate and schedule information by clicking here to open the Naviera Tambor website in a new frame.

Upon arrival in Paquera, follow signs south to Cóbano, then east to Montezuma. Drive time from the Central Valley to Montezuma is approximately 5 hours.
