Car recommended
How to get there
Ferry: puntarenas to paquera: 24.0 km
there are great commuter flights from san jose airport to Tambor airfield, only 25minute flight, and tambor is only a 45 minute drive from santa teresa. these flight are super cheap when booked early ($55-$90)... you can have a rental 4x4 car waiting for you at the Tambor airfield. Or you can rent a car from San Jose or Liberia airports and drive the distance.. both are about 5 hours .. from SJ drive to Puntarenas to ferry to Paquera, from there another 90minutes to santa teresa.
