Traveling to Manuel Antonio

luxury estate costa rica vacation

Where Is Villa Punto De Vista Located?

The villa is located in Manuel Antonio on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica (not to be confused with Puerto Rico!). To pinpoint our specific location, please see this Google Map of the villa.

Costa Rica is easily accessible via commercial flights or private jet into Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), also known as the San José airport. Many U.S. cities – New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Charlotte, and more – have direct flights to Costa Rica. International cities, including Toronto and Madrid, also offer nonstop flights to Costa Rica.

Travel Requirements:

You will need a passport to visit Costa Rica. A Visa is not required for U.S., Canadian or EU visitors. Your passport must be valid for at least six months from your date of entry into Costa Rica. Passports must be in good condition, with no rips or tears.

Getting To The Villa

Once in Costa Rica, you’ll have several options to travel to the villa:

Ground Transportation* (2.5 hours)

Most of our guests hire a luxury private van to travel to the villa. Upon arrival, an attentive chauffeur will meet you at the airport; your driver is easily identified, as s/he will display a sign with your party’s name. We arrange only for transportation in a late-model, air-conditioned van with an insured and bi-lingual driver. More than a point A-to-point B transfer, your driver is truly a private chauffeur: stop along the way for a photo-op, a snack or full meal, or even to visit a park, scenic viewpoint or other attraction!

If you’d like to book luxury ground transportation, I’m happy to arrange it on your behalf.

Air Transportation (20 minutes)

You may also opt for a short flight between San José and the villa. Flights to the Quepos Regional Airport, just 12 minutes from Villa Punto de Vista, are available everyday through local commercial airlines Nature Air and Sansa Air. Upon request, I can also arrange a private flight or helicopter charter at any time you desire.

Car Rentals**

**We do not recommend renting a car.
This will add complexity to your vacation. Not only are there potentially long lines and stacks of paperwork involved in renting a car, but Costa Rican roads can be difficult to navigate with little signage and potholes aplenty. In other words, though renting a car may seem convenient, many of our guests report it as stressful. Once at the villa, we’ll easily and conveniently take care of all your transportation needs, via private vans, taxis and buggy service.
