By Car (4 hours driving from San Jose to Azul Paraíso)
Traveling by car is the best means of transport in Guanacaste, since public transport does not service the entire region or all of its main attractions. Car travel has many advantages, allowing you to reach secluded areas while enjoying the breathtaking scenery at your own pace. The Pan-American Highway is the main highway running through Costa Rica and is usually very good for traveling. Roads do have signs, but it is a good idea to carry a travel map.
Renting a Car
Renting a car is easy in Guanacaste. There are several car rentals at the Daniel Oduber International Airport. If arriving by plane, you can make the necessary arrangements in advance. You must be 21 years old (some car rentals require you to be 24), you must have a valid license and passport and a $1500 deposit is necessary. This deposit is usually charged to a credit card and refundable once the car has been returned. Coco Beach, 3 km from Ocotal Beach, also has a car rental service. Should you later decide to rent a car, you can always ask your Azul Paraíso concierge for assistance. Why not try something different and hire a scooter to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Ocotal Beach is located in a secured area just 3 km southwest of Coco Beach. You are more than welcome to drop by at any time to go over the project with our sales Representatives. Contact us if you would like to set an appointment.
Getting to Azul Paraíso is very easy. Just follow the signs. In the main road of Coco Beach, there is an Azul Paraíso sign right in front of the Ocotal/Playa El Coco turn. Shortly after this sign, there is a sign for Ocotal Beach indicating a left turn. Turn left here and continue 3 km following the main paved road. You will find several Azul Paraíso signs along the way, so you will know you are not lost. You will arrive to a gated community on your left, turn here and drive through the gated entrance and continue 350 ft. The Azul Paraíso offices are blue and are before the Ocotal Beach Resort. Our friendly staff will be happy to answer your questions.
