HOW TO GET HOTEL LAS CALETAS LODGE - TRAVEL LOGISTICS
Below we describe some of the options to get to Las Caletas Lodge from the San José area. Please let us know which options you choose or any special needs that you may have so we can coordinate all the arrangements. Please note that access to Las Caletas is by boat only. We advise you to wear water shoes and shorts. Most of the domestic flights leave early in the morning, so your international flight would need to arrive very early in order to be able to make the entire trip in one day. If you are unable to arrive early enough it may require an overnight stay in San Jose. If so, we can recommend you a nice B & B close to the international airport.
From Sierpe to Drake Bay
The boat ride from Sierpe to Drake Bay takes you about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. On your way down the Sierpe River you can look at idyllic mangroves, seabirds and maybe crocodiles. After about 45 minutes you’ll cross the river mouth and continue your trip inshore for about 20 minutes more, until you’ll reach the beaches of “Las Caletas”. BE AWARE!: Your feet will get wet as soon as you get out of the boat!
Leaving Las Caletas will basically be the same as getting here but in reverse.
