Directions from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), Alajuela, Costa Rica TO The Bakery Restaurant in Carmen Beach, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Directions from Liberia Daniel Oduber International Airport, Guanacaste, Costa Rica TO The Bakery Restaurant in Carmen Beach, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Note: There is another route through Nosara, Samara, Coyote, Manzanillo and Santa Teresa to The Bakery Restaurant, but in Google Maps streets are not complete or correct, and you’ll have to cross several rivers.
Between Ario and Manzanillo you can continue through a stretch of beach. Make sure there is low tide and only use a 4×4 vehicle for this route. It is a very scenic trip as you go down the coast (this route exemplifies rural Costa Rica and is very beautiful). Or you can reach the junction that leads to Ario beach and go through the mountains, this way takes longer, but it’s the official road and its use is not dependent on the tides.
