How to get to the Valley

Get driving directions to the Nandamojo Valley from Liberia and San José

Get here from Liberia

Driving from Liberia’s airport, take the highway southwest towards Filadelfia. (Leaving the access road, you would turn right.) You will pass through the towns of Filadelfia and Belen; eventually, you will see signs to Playa Junquillal just before entering Santa Cruz. Turn right just before crossing the metal bridge into Santa Cruz; if you reach a stoplight you’ve gone too far. Continue towards Junquillal; after about 15km turn left at 27 de abril. There are signs for junquillal at the intersection. Then take the first right turn, at the entrance to the Nandamojo Valley.

Get here from San José

If you are coming in from San José, take the Puente de La Amistad (Friendship Bridge) route, via Ruta #27- Puntarenas. About 20minutes past the bridge, you will como to a “T” crossing; turn right towards Nicoya and Santa Cruz. The main intersection in Santa Cruz has a stoplight, followed by a small bridge. Take the first left after the bridge, towards Junquillal. Continue and after 15km you need to turn left at 27 de abril. There are signs for Junquillal at the intersection. Then take the first right turn, at the entrance to the Nandamojo Valley.

What Currency is used in Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s official currency is the colón, marked with the symbol ₡ and the abbreviation CRC. While the exchange rate varies, typically one US Dollar is worth about 570 Costa Rican Colones.

Most businesses in our area will accept dollars, however, though cash is much more widely used than credit cards.
