Driving from Manuel Antonio? Take the coast road, Route 34, up to Route 27, which then connects to Route 1 heading North to Canas. Then follow the same directions as from San Jose airport. Drive time between 4 and 5 hours.
Driving from Tamarindo? Head to Liberia, then South on Route One down to Canas. ie follow the directions as from Liberia airport.
Coming by Bus?
From San Jose, it costs about US$ 5 per person and takes about 4.5 hours. You should take the Tilaran bus (not La Fortuna), then take a taxi from Tilaran to the hotel, which will cost about US$ 6. The buses depart San Jose daily 7.30am, 9.30am, 12.45pm, 3.30pm and 6.30pm (this is subject to change). For the Tilaran bus, you need the Auto Transportes Tilaran bus stop.
If coming from other places, the ultimate destination needs to be Tilaran, which will often require changes at Liberia or Canas. The Canas change is quite tricky as you need to find the right bus stop in Canas for the Tilaran bus, which is not clearly marked as being the Tilaran stop. You will need to ask a few times, but everyone in Canas knows where it is and you will finally get there. It is a only a few blocks from where you get dropped in Canas, but keep asking every block to make sure you have not been misdirected (the Canas folk don’t misdirect on purpose, but sometimes they get it wrong!)
Depending on where you come from by bus, you may end up routing through La Fortuna. The bus from La Fortuna leaves early morning, so you will need to overnight in La Fortuna. You can check in La Fortuna what time the bus leaves and where it leaves from. La Fortuna is small, and most hotels are close to the main road where the bus leaves from. The bus cost from La Fortuna is minimal at a dollar or so.
