Geeting to FINCA MIA
Finca Mia provides a shuttle service from San Jose to our retreat center in the Chirripo Mountains. Find the details of our shuttle service here.
If you are arriving the morning of your retreat - in order to meet the shuttle, you must be OUTSIDE of the airport by 10:00. As soon as you exit the airport and take a few steps - you will see a restaurant called MALINCHE’S on your right. Wait there until your trusty driver arrives to pick you up at 10:00/10:30 (we will alert you of the exact time). He will have a sign that says Finca Mia. Don’t be confused by the many, many taxi drivers asking you if you need a taxi, just make your way to Malinche’s to await your driver there.
We will send the phone number for your specific taxi driver before you arrive, but if any problems arise and you are not able to find your driver with the “FINCA MIA” sign please call us by Whatsapp (see front page for contact numbers) and we will help you asap. There is free wifi in the airport. The shuttle driver has all your flight itineraries and will know when your flight arrives or if it has been delayed.
If you are arriving past the shuttle time, please tune in with our team! We will either line you up with a loving private taxi driver or we will need to get your details for how you are arriving so someone is there to greet you! Private taxis arriving to Finca Mia or departing from Finca Mia is an extra cost on your part.
