By Car:

From the airport, take the motorway in the direction of San Jose. Before you reach San Jose take the bypass 39 via Cartago. Once you have bypassed San Jose, you will reach the legendary Panamericana (2). Follow the Panamericano in the direction of Cartago until you reach the exit for Paraiso, following the Old Road (10) in the direction of Limon. In Paraiso follow the signs to Turrialba. The road wil take you through Cervantes, Juan Vinas and through Turrialba. About 6 kms beyond Turrialba you will cross the river Rio Reventazon, you will see the signs towards La Suiza.

Follow the road until you reach La Suiza. In La Suiza drive along the main road. On your left  you will see the Banco Nacional, then the village football pitch. Once you have passed the football pitch, look out for a fruit and vegetable store on your right. Turn right off the main road here at the fruit and vegetable store. You will cross the river Rio Tuis on a small bridge. After you have crossed the bridge, turn left onto a dirt road. From here on like for all Costa Rica is a Four-Wheel-Drive recommendable. At the next crossroads (about 200 m), keep to your right and follow the road uphill. After about 1 km you will reach a little height from where you have a breathtaking view across La Suiza, Turrialba and the vulcano Turrialba on your right. On the left you look over Finca Pura Vida and the river Armado. After a few metres you reach a little red house by the road on the left. Pass this house and after another 200m you will see the gate entrance to Finca Pura Vida.
