Driving Directions to Crocodile Bay Resort
Please note: GPS, Google Maps or similar app is recommended as road signs in Costa Rica are sparse.
From San Jose, Costa Rica, take route 27 East towards Orotina. Shortly after Orotina and Coyolar there will be a tollbooth, and within 300 yards after there will be an exit on the right to get on route 34 South (or “la costanera sur”) towards Jaco, which you will take. After passing Jaco and Quepos, you will come to Palmar Norte, which will have a “Y in the road”, take the right (which will put you across a long bridge) onto route 2 south. At the gas station at Chacarrita take a right onto route 245 towards Puerto Jimenez (It is a good idea to get gas here because it is 78 kilometers until Puerto Jimenez and no gas stations). Once you reach Puerto Jimenez, the concrete road will make a hard right and you will see the soccer field on the left. Take a left before (or after) the soccer field which will put you down on a dirt road which runs parallel to the bay, go right so that the water is on your left side (you will pass over a small bridge) continue until you see the airport and take the left before the airport (so that the airport fence is on your right side). Pass the first Crocodile Bay entrance on the left, which is the employee entrance, and after a mandatory left turn away from the airport you will see the Crocodile Bay Hotel entrance on the left side.
