The bus stop is less than 50 meters from the property and it comes/goes to San Isidro 6x per day, except Sundays (3x per day). The road is 85% asphalt paved, making travel to our location by foot, bike, horse or vehicle accessible. We have a local plaza about a 5 minute walk from the property with a general store, two restaurants. Nearby restaurants include Roca Dura and The Rio - each offering traditional Costa Rica food alongside pizza, burgers and fries. All foods are locally grown and freshly prepared and yummy! Other Things to NoteThe temperatures range from 60 to 85 degrees. Cooler in the evenings and mornings, and warm during the daytime hours. We recommend that you bring: • Bug repellant: Remember this location is in the rainforest, along a river, and a variety of bugs, bees, ants (etc.) call this place home. Deet-free insect repellant is best for you and the environment. Lavender and citronella or neem in carrier oils (coconut, jojoba, etc.) work great. • Shoes: There are biting ants and the terrain is hilly and rocky. It becomes slippery during and after rains. Shoes with good tread and ankle support are highly recommended. • Rain gear: From April through November, it rains almost daily here. An umbrella and/or rain jacket and rubber boots or shoes will help you stay dry. • Flashlight/Head Lamp: You'll be far from the city lights, so pack a flashlight or head lamp to carry with you after dark. We have a lovely little dog living on the property. She heartily welcomes visitors, and if allowed, will accompany guests around the property and beyond. She is very agile, loves to hike and take walks. She's also well trained, however, and will listen to commands like "stay home, be good".
