It is very easy to get here with a 25 minute flight from San Jose International Airport to Tambor Airstrip where a taxi will drive you through the famous Nicoya Peninsula Blue Zone to our Yoga Retreat Costa Rica & Yoga Teacher Training Certification Program Center. All guests must arrive at The Sanctuary no later than 4:00 pm on arrival day; please schedule your travel accordingly.

Flying In and Out of Costa Rica at San Jose International Airport
San Jose International Airport (SJO) is the most convenient airport to The Sanctuary. Frequent international flights are available at this modern airport.

For your travel, plan at least two hours between local air and international travel.

By Local Air to Tambor, then by Taxi to The Sanctuary at Two Rivers
The best local airline that offers scheduled flights and charter services to Tambor Airstrip is Sansa. The flight time is 25 minutes. Check for flights on Sansa Airlines at Costa Rica Green Airways and Aerobell. The domestic terminal is a 5 minute walk from the exit of the International Airport for Sansa and Costa Rica Green Airways. Aerobel’s terminal is a 20 minute taxi ride from SJO in Pavas so plan accordingly.

Please allow at least 1.5 hours from your International arrival time in order to clear Immigration and Customs and to check-in for the Domestic flight.

By Land to The Sanctuary
An option to flying, we can prearrange land transportation (shuttle bus for a group or private taxi for individuals) from San Jose directly to The Sanctuary via roads and a ferry that crosses Nicoya Bay to the Nicoya Peninsula. This might be economical for a large group and is approx. 5 hours. Prices start at $260.

Individuals can book their own shuttle through Montezuma Expeditions or Tropical Tours for approx. $50. Shuttles leave San Jose early every morning and will bring you directly to The Sanctuary. This is about a 6 hour trip.

We do not recommend renting a car.
