The fastest way to get there is to take the new highway 27 that goes to Caldera, take the exit to Jaco-Manuel Antonio and before you enter Quepos (Manuel Antonio) you will se signs to Dominical (Dominical is approx 1 hour or less from Manuel Antonio). It takes approx 4 hours going this way. The road is all in good shape. Have a great trip!

Fantastic roads to get to Cuna del Angel...without stops you can be there from San Jose in about 3:45 minutes...get a good map and or a GPS...and Hit the road...

27th to Orotina...take the exit to Tarcoles Jaco...all the way to Paquita...make a left at the intersection...all the way to Uvita---Dominical..

Anybody with a good vehicle and sense of direction...can easily make it in 3 hours 45 minutes...I drive very often people to some nice places around Uvita...and a legal speed ...not driving like a chicken without the head that is what it takes me...for some people that are new in our country or maybe one time there...will be a lot longer...anyway is a great ride...just observe speed limits and driving distances...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

Omg I love this website! Thank you for the information!! I am going in mid September and kind of on the fence about driving. I'm a female traveling alone and wasn't sure what it would be like. Thank you both again for taking the time out and responding!! It really helps.
