How to get there

Pura Suerte is located at the bottom of the Nicoya Peninsula on Tambor Beach, in beautiful Ballena Bay. There are a few options for getting to the house.

There are two airports you can fly into, San Juan Santamaria airport in San Jose or Liberia International Airport. With a rental car you can drive down the peninsula from Liberia or drive to the coast from San Jose and then ferry across from Puntarenas. The Liberia drive takes approximately three hours. From San Jose you can drive to Puntarenas (1 hour on the Autopista Del Sol (R27) toll road) and then take the Tambor Ferry (a 70-minute beautiful boat ride) to Paquera then drive the 35 minutes to the house. There are multiple ferry departures daily.

Would you prefer to fly? Sansa Air offers an express commuter service from either San Jose or Liberia. A brief 25-minute flight provides incredible views of the rugged Costa Rican shoreline and conveniently sets you down right beside our community. After you disembark, a 3-minute taxi ride whisks you to the house. With multiple flights a day it is easy to coordinate your trip!

Not for the faint of heart…. Alternatively, you can drive north from San Jose and around the peninsula. Note: This drive can be very challenging due to varying road conditions. If you are adventurous enough for the drive, it is incredible, but a 4X4 is necessary and having ample time to enjoy the route is a must as it can take 5+ hours depending on weather, traffic, road conditions etc.
