Map of Costa Rica, parks are in green
The executive development Tierra Verde is located in the south west region of Costa Rica in
the province of Perez Zeledon @ 3500 ft above sea level and only 15 minutes from the town
of San Isidro de General.
Travel time from San Jose, 3.5 hrs
and from Liberia 5 hrs. The thing to remember about driving in Costa Rica
is the fact your average speed will be 50 km/hr or 30 m/hr.
Driving from San Jose is incredible
the mountain road is a fantastic drive loaded with views. Driving from
Liberia takes longer, you get to see more of the country, and you will
pass through a few nice costal towns, where there is an abundance of
shops, restaurants, tour companies, real estate companies and much more.
When you reserve a stay as Casa Los
Indios, you will receive a rental package which will contain detailed
information on how to get to Tierra Verde and Casa Los Indios.
Casa Los Indios might be in the
hills away from it all but you can even get
pizza delivered if you want, from a local restaurant and it is rather good.

Verde exit is just south of San Isidro right at the Maxi Bodega entrance
(Costa Rica's version of Wal-Mart) so you can not miss the turn off. There
are two bridges just leaving town heading south, once you cross the second
one and head up the hill a bit there it is, the Maxi Bodega and your exit.
Once you exit off the Pan
American Highway you are on the road to Rivas, a small town up in the
hills which has all conveniences, including an excellent hardware store.
The drive from the exit is a
total of 8 km or 5 miles, takes about 15 minutes, the drive is
pleasant and there are a lot of sights to see. There are many convenience
stores along the road, including butchers, restaurants, spas, hotels,
apartments, mechanic shops, schools, the University, and of course a club
There is one more turn to make
before getting to Tierra Verde, 2 km or 1.2 miles before getting to Rivas
you have to make a left turn towards the hills and the village of
