From the Liberia International Airport
The airport is approximately 7 miles southwest of the city of Liberia.
As you leave the airport road, turn right onto the main highway and
proceed for approximately 5 more miles, passing the Tempisque River and
the small villages of Guardia and Communidad. At Communidad there is a
large red and white Total gas station on the left and a road on the
right with signs indicating that you turn right for the beaches of
Ocotal, Coco, Hermosa and Panama. Once you've made the right-hand turn
it's approximately 10 miles to the village of Playas del Coco. As you
enter the village a portion of the road is divided by a median and the
road to Ocotal is the first left-hand turn, approximately 200 yards
after the median ends, and just past Rich Coast Diving on the left.
you've turned left on the road to Ocotal, proceed about 2 more miles on
the paved road and after you come to the top of a hill the road splits
to the right or the left. Bear to the left, through the Ocotal gate and
tell the guard at the gate that you're going to Villa Vista Mar. After
the gate, continue to bear to the left for about 200 yards and turn
right at the Hotel Villa Casa Blanca, on the road to Bahia Pez Vela and Picante Restaurant. Villa Vista Mar is 300 yards
further on the right hand side, 500 meters before Bahia Pez Vela.

From San Jose
From downtown San Jose proceed northwest on the Interamericana
Highway toward the airport in Alajuela. Continue past the airport on
the Interamericana to the city of Liberia (about 120 miles from San
Jose). At Liberia there is a traffic light with a Burger King (sorry,
but at least they do have clean bathrooms) on the left. Turn left at
that traffic light and after approximately 7 miles you'll reach the
Liberia International Airport. Continue past the airport and follow the
directions in the preceding section.
