Drive to Tiskita
Rent a car and drive

The drive from San José to Tiskita takes approximately eight hours and is a great way to see the country.

Of course we can assist our guests with car rentals and provide driving directions. We also recommend getting a GPS from the car rental agency if they have one available.

Note that once you’re at Tiskita, there’s a chance that you won’t need or use your expensive rental car that much. Tiskita provides shuttles to most of the activities in the area and most guests decide that they’d rather just relax in their hammocks, enjoying the birds and the breeze. This is one reason we at Tiskita recommend one of the flight options instead as they ultimately end up being less expensive and a much quicker way to get here.
