FOR POST ENVISION ATTENDEES::
There will be a Shuttle to our Eco-Retreat available from DOMINICAL on the 25th and 26th.
There will be more details available soon and through email correspondence.
PLEASE ARRIVE AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE THE RETREAT BEGINS AND FACTOR IN FLIGHTS that leave AT LEAST A DAY AFTER the retreat to allow for an ease-full transition out.
Arriving at the San Jose Airport seems a bit overwhelming. Just relax and flow until you get to the exit area. If you are taking a cab right from the terminal, buy your ticket from the window to the left as you are about to exit from the airport (about $50 to Puriscal). This ticket will get you into one of the orange taxis; they will not rip you off like the cabs outside. Many have paid three times what they should have. Please stay in close touch with me via email before you are coming.
The buses run from outside the airport to San Jose all of the time. Once you arrive in San Jose you will need to take a cab to the Puriscal Terminal. This should cost about $4. (If you’re not carrying too much and know the way, this is walkable as well.) The Puriscal bus terminal has a bus departing every 30 minutes for most of the day. The ride should take about an hour.
If we have planned it and it is possible (this is not always the case) that day I (Josh) can be in Puriscal to meet you. Our cell phone number is 8722-9551. Call me when you are getting on your way from San Jose. Our phone doesn’t work consistently, though, so do not rely on this unless you have made plans with us already.
Buses from Puriscal to the farm Most buses leave from the block that the hardware store Macho Cruz is on, in front of Horocho’s Carniceria. Several buses run from here to San Martin daily. Buses to Quepos also pass San Martin and leave from theBanco Popular, which is one block south from the old church. Be sure to tell the driver you need to get off atBar Caballo Blanco in San Martin.
Bus schedule from Puriscal: (probably incomplete and subject to change based on things that defy prediction)
Taxi from Puriscal to the farm: You can get a cab from Puriscal to our farm for around $60.00. The taxis are found (usually in a long line) along the park in the middle of town. You need to tell them you are going to Lanas. (Alternatively, you may be in your own rented car.) Our road is off of the road that goes to Salitrales and on to La Cangreja park and Parrita. The Caballo Blanco is about 5 minutes (some 4 km) past Salitrales on this road. Lanas is 14 km from San Martin (at Bar Caballo Blanco take a right). This road is a fairly straightforward drive. Just make sure you take a right turn at Quebrada Honda. There is no sign marking this place, but the main road takes a sharp right here, while the side-road goes straight ahead and up the hill past a blue building. A ways past Lanas proper you will see the farm on the left.
OR: We can also set this ride up with a friend that lives near us in Lanas; this will cost $50 to do.
OR: We can set up a small bus to pick you up from the airport and deliver you to the farm. Depending on season, state of the roads, exchange rates and inflation, this will cost around $150.00, but can take a lot of people.
