  • From Tambor, we'll arrange a taxi or shuttle for you to the retreat. (45 mins).

Top Travel Tip:

  • We have found that it works best to come in a day early and stay at a hotel in Tambor. This way if there are any flight hiccups or travel delays, you'll still get to enjoy the full retreat. 

  • If you do stay come to stay in Tambor a day early: 

    • You can book an airport shuttle ($30) when booking the local Sansa Air flight from San Jose to Tambor,

    • or if you fly with Green Airways your hotel can arrange a shuttle, or you can take a cab to your hotel ($60).
