Good Times, Cocal Amarillo.

Driving Directions:

There are 2 ways to get to us, the Golfito road or the Paso Canoas road ( the border). The road to Golfito is shorter and in OK shape. So you will spend the same time.

The Golfito road:

  • From San Jose, take the road toward Jaco, then head toward QueposDominical;
  • Keep driving south, toward Ojochal, Palmar, Rio Claro;
  • In Rio Claro,( last place to get gas), turn right toward Golfito, drive around 20 minutes and turn left where there is the “Rodeo Restaurant”, the road to the ferry, or the Road to Pavones. The ferry has been replaced by a bridge, but still people  call it like that. 
  • Drive around 15 minutes, cross the bridge ( Rio Coto river). Keep staying onthe main road, follow the sign to Pavones and Conte.
  • Drive around 35 minutes, you are now in Conte, where  the road is paved with many holes.
  • Turn right toward Pavones. Pass in front of the small clinic on your right and drive 5 minutes until a fork, take the Pavones road.
  • Drive up hill for 15 minutes, enjoy the view of the bay, then start to go down hill for another 5 minutes; Now pass three bridges. Turn left at La Hierba Road. ( There is a surf shop sign at the intersection).
  • Go up the road  for around 400 yards, you will see on your right hand side, a big Good Times sign. Turn right and get in the second entrance.  Meet us in there.

The Paso Canoas road:

  • From San Jose, take the road toward Jaco, then head toward QueposDominical,
  • Keep driving south, toward Ojochal, Palmar, Rio Claro, Ciudad Neilly, all the way to Paso Canoas.
  • Once in front of the border, turn right, drive on the paved road to Laurel, all the way to Naranjo ( around 40 minutes). Pass the bridge: here starts the dirt road, pretty well maintained those days.
  • Drive all the way to Conte. Turn left in Conte toward Pavones.
  • Pass Conte, turn left on the fork toward Pavones. Drive up hill for 15 minutes, enjoy the view of the bay, then start to go down hill for another 5 minutes;
  • Now pass three bridges. Turn left at La Hierba Road. ( There is a surf shop sign at the intersection).
  • Go up the road  for around 400 yards, you will see on your right hand side, a big Good Times sign. Turn right and get in the second entrance.  Meet us in there.
