To give you a better idea of where we are located in Costa Rica, here is a map to illustrate the geography. We are staying in a very small town called Hatillo on the Pacific side (Southern Zone of Costa Rica). It’s marked with the arrow on the map above. The Town of Quepos is about a 30 minute drive from Hatillo and Dominical is about 10 minutes away. Uvita is a 15 minute drive further south from Dominical, which is a 25 minute drive for us – more or less. The international airport we use is actually located in Alajeula, not San Jose. As mentioned in earlier posts, it’s about a 3 hour drive from the Santamaria International Airport to Hatillo. Usually, we stay in a small B & B in La Garita of Alajeula called Villa de Margarita when we are arriving or leaving CR. However, occasionally we drive straight to Hatillo after arriving into the country. It’s really not a bad drive now that the roads are all paved on the southern route! There are many fun and interesting places to stop along the way, such as, the Tarcoles River bridge where you can see huge crocodiles below.
