How to get to Hotel Casa Cook?
Coming from the International Airport Juan Santa Maria, close to the towns of Alajuela and San Jose:
Take the Interamericana (Highway 1) north in the direction of San Ramon and Puntarenas. Continue on this road past Puntarenas until you get to a junction at Las Juntas (at this junction you will see signs promoting the new bridge crossing the Gulf of Nicoya). From here you have two possibilities:
1. continue on Highway 1 until you get to the town of Liberia or
2. take a left turn at the junction (Shell station on your left hand side) in the direction of the Puente de la Amistad/Friendship Bridge/Tempisque Bridge, which crosses the Gulf of Nicoya.
1. Continuing on Highway 1 via Liberia:
Coming from Highway 1 you approach the town of Liberia. From here it is about 1,5 hours drive to Tamarindo. In Liberia, at the big junction with traffic lights and gas stations, you take a left turn, following the direction for Santa Cruz and Nicoya. You'll pass towns like Filadelfia and Belen. Right after Belen you take a right turn, heading to Tamarindo and Flamingo. Don't forget to fill it up near the town of El Llano (about 2 km./1.25 miles after the turnoff for Portegolpe), for there are no more gas stations on your way to Tamarindo.
In Huacas you turn left for Tamarindo and all you have to do is follow the road signs, which will lead you to a right turn in the small village of Villareal. Follow this road and you will have reached your destination: Playa Tamarindo.
2. Turning left from Highway 1 via Puente de la Amistad/Friendship Bridge/Tempisque Bridge:
From Highway 1 you take a left turn heading towards the bridge. Once you have crossed the Gulf of Nicoya using this bridge, you follow the road until you get to the signs leading you to the town of Nicoya. When approaching Nicoya, continue on this road to Santa Cruz. Don't forget to fill up your car in Santa Cruz, for there are no more gas stations on your way to Tamarindo.
As you leave Santa Cruz, still on that same road, you will pass a bridge. Here you again have two options. If you want to take the partly unpaved road (last part of the old road is bumpy with many potholes), turn left at the first road signs pointing to Tamarindo, immediately after the bridge when leaving Santa Cruz, and follow this road. You will eventually end up in the small town of Villareal, where you take a left turn for Playa Tamarindo.
If you prefer to drive on a paved road from Santa Cruz (new road), then don't turn left after the bridge in Santa Cruz but continue on the main road until you reach the signs for Tamarindo and Flamingo (near the town of Belen). Turn left. There is a gas station near the town of El Llano (about 2km./1.25 miles after the turn off for Portegolpe). Continue on this road until you get to the village of Huacas and here you take a left turn for Playa Tamarindo. Follow the road signs and in the village of Villareal you take a right turn for Playa Tamarindo.
Coming from the International Airport Daniel Oduber in Liberia, Guanacaste:
After leaving the airport, you will get to the main road. Here you take a right turn in the direction of the beaches, Santa Cruz and Nicoya. You'll pass towns like Filadelfia and Belen. Right after Belen you take a right turn, heading to Tamarindo and Flamingo. Don't forget to fill it up near the town of El Llano (about 2 km./1.25 miles after the turn off for Portegolpe), for there are no more gas stations on your way to Tamarindo.
In Huacas you turn left for Tamarindo and all you have to do is follow the road signs, which will lead you to a right turn in the small village of Villareal. Follow this road until Playa Tamarindo.
Continue on the main road of Tamarindo, turn left in ABC real State, after Shark Bite turn rigth, continue in this road 1km, and finally you have reach Hotel Casa Cook.
