The village of Matapalo is at the outermost point of the Osa Peninsula, in the southern Pacific coast area of Costa Rica. Known for its remoteness, Matapalo is a hidden paradise amongst jungle and ocean. The cape, or “Cabo” itself is just the name of the tip of the peninsula.

- Fly into San José (SJO)
- Travel to Puerto Jiménez, the closest “town” to us (see the discussion on the TA forum about how to best do this)… It’s a 50 minute flight on Sansa Air.
- Transfer from Puerto Jiménez to the retreat property, El Tumbo de las Olas ($50 cab fare for up to 4 people, about 30 minutes according to Google)
