Before Your Stay

How do I get there?

Tambor airstrip is serviced by Green Airways, Sansa, and other domestic companies and is a 60 min drive from Kaya Bloom.

We can also arrange a private charter flight to accommodate any time most convenient for you and your group.

By Car: Drive from SJO to Puntarenas,1.5 hours and take the scenic 1 hour ferry to Paquera. Afterward enjoy the winding jungle roads for another short hour to Kaya Bloom.
By Bus:
6am: San Jose to Cobano
or
2pm: San Jose to Playa Carmen, Mal Pais crossroads
The journey takes around 6 hrs. From either bus stop, you will need to take a taxi or we can arrange a private transfer for you.

Can my pet come too?

Are we pet friendly? You bet! Cats and dogs are welcome!
A maximum of two pets are allowed per room at no extra charge. Just make sure your furry friends do their business in the designated areas and behave when outside the room.

Sorry, no pets in the restaurant or pool (that’s the health department’s call and we’ve gotta heed their rules). Pets cannot be left unattended at any time.

Do I need a vehicle?

Having transportation in this region is convenient. There is loads to explore! The roads are rough so an All-Wheel Drive or 4×4 is recommended.

If you do not arrive by car, no worries! There are a number of car and ATV rental companies in town. Let us know if you would like us to assist you in pre-booking.

We can also arrange private transportation for specific activities should you not require transportation for the entire duration of your stay.
