• Directions:
Danyasa Eco-Retreat lies in the Canton de Osa, in the town of Dominical.

The quaint beach town of Dominical lies on the northern border of the Osa Peninsula, considered the most bio-diverse place on Earth by the National Geographic Society and the United Nations.  Dominical and the surrounding areas boast world class surf, lush jungled covered mountains that soar from the sea, an abundance of exciting adventure opportunities and a host of spectacular natural attractions ranging from waterfalls to sea caves to hidden beaches and more!

There are also a number of great restaurants and other amenities in the area, such as banks, pharmacies and supermarkets.  Most everything you need can be easily gotten in Dominical.


Getting Here:
Getting to Danyasa Eco-Retreat is easy. If renting a car, you can follow the directions and map below to find us. Allow 3 hours to arrive in Dominical from the airport in San Jose. We do highly recommend renting a GPS with your vehicle, as most streets in Costa Rica do not have signs or even names!

Shared ride shuttles provide another option for getting to us. Sit back and watch the scenery and leave the driving to the pros. Shared ride shuttles usually leave from the Juan Santamaria International Airport and generally cost around $55 each way.  The shuttles take about 3 hours.

Private shuttles from San Jose airport or the city run $150 and take about 3 hours.

One can also take a 20 minute airplane flight from San Jose to Quepos and then take a taxi or rent a car to drive the remaining 30 minutes south to Dominical.

And lastly, public buses can take you from downtown San Jose right to our doorstep.  The buses leave from the TRACOPA bus terminal, and the bus line is called Delio Morales. You will have to buy a ticket to Uvita, but you can get off anywhere. There are two buses each day. Each bus stops briefly at Orotina and Quepos before arriving at Dominical.  The buses leave at 6am and 3pm and take about 5 hours to get to Dominical.
