Location: 1 km from the Inter American Highway, Vista del Valle sits on the edge of the dramatic Rio Grande Canyon at about 2700 foot in the middle of a lush plantation. Coast can be reached in about 90 minutes and we are 20 minutes from the airport. For guests that want to explore the capital city of San Jose it is just 40 kilometers away (about 27 miles).
Directions From The International Airport: Take highway 1 north in the direction towards San Ramon. The first large highway sign you’ll see (from the airport going north) indicates Alajuela to the right and San Ramon straight ahead. Don’t take the Alajuela turnoff! We are in the Province of Alajuela which covers a huge area. Driving about 22 kms. (15 + – minutes) you have passed 3 bridges. The 3rd bridge (known as the Raphael Iglesias bridge). 1/2 mile beyond that bridge is our turn off. Take the first left if there’s no traffic in case of traffic you must take the “official” hairpin right turn that is about 100 yards further ahead you should see one of our hotel signs that says “Vista Del Valle” with an arrow to guide you.
