We’ve put together the following information for those planning trips to Pavones Yoga Center.
Driving: If you’re renting a car in San Jose, you can download these detailed driving directions from the SJO airport to Pavones Yoga Center.
If you are interested in renting a car in Golfito, SOLID Car Rental is your best (actually your only) option.
Flying: You’ll want to fly from San Jose to Golfito which is the nearest airport. Check out the two options, Nature Air and Sansa. Keep in mind that the Nature Air terminal is in Pavas, about 25 minutes from the SJO airport. Sansa is right beside the SJO airport. Nature Air does provide shuttle services between airports for a nominal fee. Nature Air often runs specials, but beware of tight luggage weight-limit restrictions on both airlines.
Tracopa services the southern zone. Check their website for the most updated info. Currently daily buses depart from the Tracopa station in San Jose to Golfito at 7AM and 3:30 PM. The Tracopa number is (506) 2775-0365.
Local buses leave from Golfito to Pavones daily (except Sundays) at 10 AM and 3 PM.
Overnighting In San Jose: Chris Crotty (Assistant Director of the 200-hour program at PYC) recommends Hotel Aeropuerto. Conveniently located and easy to access because of free transportation… Price is between $60 to $80 depending upon how you book it- ask for a discount. It is close to the airport, provides free transportation so long as you book through the airport transportation, and has a good breakfast. We love Grano de Oro in downtown San Jose. Prices range from $150 to $400 per night. A less expensive option is Hostel Casa Colon ($20/person, shared rooms) though (full disclosure) we’ve never stayed there… it does look nice from the outside. If you’re arriving late night and just need a comfortable place to crash, the Hampton Inn is nearest the SJO airport.
