There are two ways to drive from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez:

The first is to head down the Pan American Highway through San Isidro. Head west from San Isidro to Dominical ( 3/4 – 1 hr.) and follow the coast road south through Dominical to Palmar Norte. From there head south on the Pan American to Chacarita, take a right turn towards Pto. Jimenez (58 km) . Drive through Pto. Jimenez and take the only road (dirt road!) south to Carate. We are located 18 km south on the left hand side.

The second and faster option is to head west from San José toward the coast, take the new highway “Pista del Sol”. It’s a faster drive, and the road is recently repaired. Head west from San Jose toward Jaco, then south toward Quepos, continuing onward to Dominical, and to Palmar Norte and then follow the directions above.

Driving from Golfito is not possible, as the ferry is not a car ferry. It only ferries foot passengers. Hence, if you have a car and are coming north from Panama or in or around Golfito, you need to drive north to Chacarrita, and then follow the directions above once on the Osa Peninsula
