How to Get to Lookout Inn Lodge in the Costa Rican Rainforest

Getting to Costa Rica is easy! Our Juan Santamaria International Airport, located near our capital city, San José, is Costa Rica’s largest international airport and has many non-stop flights arriving and departing daily.

Once you arrive in San José, you have multiple transportation options. How you get to our remote beach and jungle eco lodge entirely on your available time, your sense of adventure and the amount of money you wish to spend.

The following options should help you decide which form of transport is best for you.


There are two airline companies that service Puerto Jimenez on a daily basis with a flight time of approximately 1 hour. Note: with all flights, advanced reservations are definitely recommended.

Hotel Jimenez, Puerto Jimenez Costa Rica

If you find yourself in Puerto Jimenez and would like a quick 10-minute flight to the secluded Lookout Inn Lodge in the Costa Rica rainforest, you have one option: Alfa Romeo Air Taxi. Alfa Romeo offers air charter service throughout Costa Rica, specializing in destinations in the southern zone. With our fleet of four aircraft (two Cessna 206's and two Azteca five passenger planes), our experienced pilots and over 40 Costa Rican destinations, we're happy to serve your domestic travel needs. The first company to offer service to Sirena Station in Corcovado National Park and with over 15 years experience, Alfa Romeo is a leader in domestic charter flights. In addition, we offer 24-hour emergency air transport all across Costa Rica.  Feel free to contact us at aerocorcovado@racsa.co.cr.


Private 4WD Taxi

Private Taxi is $80.00 one-way (for whole taxi, not pp). These are 4x4D pickup trucks with tarps & padded seats in the back.


The colectivo is about $9.00pp, leaves in front of bus station twice a day 6am & 1:30pm, everyday including Sundays.

Rental Car

Rent a car and drive to Puerto Jimenez and then on to Carate. Outside of Puerto Jimenez, there are too many rent-a-car places to mention, but in Puerto Jimenez, we can recommend Solid Car Rental or Toyota Rent a Car. Note: Do not rent a 4WD drive car  - you need a 4WD truck or SUV – If you don’t, you’ll regret it!
