Directions & Transportation

1. Arrival & Departure

From San Jose Airport to TIERRA SAGRADA:

TIERRA SAGRADA is about 3 hours from the airport to Dominical. There are two shuttle options: MonkeyRide (approx: $55; tel: 2787-0454 and USA: US TEL: (323)285 8832, email: and EasyRide (approx: $55; tel: 8812-4012 and USA: 703-879-2284 email:

From Dominical it is a 20 minute ride up the mountain to our Center. You could take a taxi from Dominical for about $20-25.

If coming by car, before entering Dominical, turn left onto Route 243 towards San Isidro for about 5 minutes. Before the first small metal bridge (and a tire repair business on the right), turn left onto Lagunas Road.

Drive straightway, with patience, on a rugged and steep dirt road, about 5.6 kilometers (approx. 15 minutes) to a big wooden sign on the right side of the road that says Refugio Mira Piedras.

Turn right into driveway and proceed on the road directly, without turning, until you see signs for Tierra Sagrada.

One can also take a local jumper plane from SJO with Sansa or Nature Air (takes only 20 minutes with costs about $90 and arrives in Quepos, which is about a 30 minute ride to Dominical by Monkey Ride or Easy Ride or taxi. From there to TIERRA SAGRADA see info above.

One can also rent a 4 x4 car and take the Pacific Coast Highway (Caldera) to Dominical. If 3 or 4 can arrange to arrive about the same time, this SHARED option is the BEST (about $400/wk, plus insurance).

2. Exploring surrounding area

Depending on the number of people using these options, there will be a small fee, either for our Center truck or a van or a taxi. There is so much to do and see surrounding Tierra Sagrada and it adds value to your retreat to plan one or two half or full day adventures.
