La Cacatúa Lodge is located on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, 18 kilometer south of Dominical and 1.5 kilometers from the village of Uvita. From San Jose you can reach our charming small hotel / Bed & Breakfast by car in about three and a half hours.

From San Jose by car there are two different routes you can come to Uvita.

The first route passes the mountain "El Cerro del Muerte" which leads through a beautiful various countryside until you get through the cool cloud forest to the top. The road winds slowly down and go through the bustling town of San Isidro de El General to Dominical surfers village. As you reach the highway, the "La Costanera". This highway leads all the way to Panama, you drive along the most beautiful beaches to the south until you finally reach Uvita.

The second (shorter) route is from San Jose to the west coast where you follow the new road along the towns Jaco, Quepos and Dominical until you finally reach Uvita.
