Where is Costa Rica Located?

Costa Rica is sandwiched between Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. The SJO airport is located in the southern center of the country. The Villa Mariana is located on the Pacific ocean side. As the crow flies, it is approximately 32 miles from the SJO aiport, however, the highways and toll roads travel from the airport to the west (Pacific coast) and then south to Manuel Antonio approximately 92 miles.

When searching for flights, you will fly to Juan Santamaria airport (SJO) from your home town. Our concierge can give you the transportation options to The Villa Mariana. Most of our groups (about 98% of them) choose to rent a private shuttle to make the drive down to the villa. These are very comfortable, air-conditioned and private shuttles with professional, friendly drivers.
