Getting around
Although the road is paved all the way to the house from San José, we recommend renting a mid size SUV (4x4) to get around. Most activities require 4x4 vehicles to get to them. There is public transport from the house to San Isidro. A taxi from San Isidro will cost around $25 to the house. A driver from San José will cost $160 to the house.
How to get there
From San Jose: Approach san isidro on Inter American Highway (2). Town will be on the right and pass by the gas stations on the left. (NB. This will be your last opportunity to fill up with gas before the house). Pass by San Isidro on main road (church on the right) and go over bridge and head up hill and around bend to the left (100 meters). Large green painted supermarket on the left 'Maxi Pali' (NB. This is the best place for you to get supplies for the house. You will be able to buy very basic groceries near the house aswell as fresh local produce like cheese, milk, coffee, eggs, chickens, trout, bananas). Take slip road up hill on left immediatly after supermarket. Turn left at the top and follow road 10 kilometers (15 minutes) to Rivas. At Rivas, go over big bridge and veer to the left past the ferreteria (hardware store) on the right. Continue over 2 speed bumps by school and past church on the right. After 50 meters turn right ('Coopallianza' on right) and follow road up hill towards 'Parque Nacional de Chirripo'. Continue another 10 kilometers (15 minutes) through 'Guadalupe', then 'Chimirol' until just before you reach the village of 'Canaan'. 400 meters before you get to the soccer pitch in Canaan you will pass a 2 meter high concrete wall with plants along it and a large wooden gate and a wooden side gate...this is the house 'Kubla Khan', where we will be waiting for you to check you in, give you the keys and show you around the property.
