Getting to Flō Retreat CenterGuests will be given exact directions upon accepted reservation & deposit
Flō is located in 3KM outside of Uvita, Costa Rica. Uvita is a small town on the South Pacific Coast about 3.5 hours from the San Jose (SJO) airport via coastal route 34.
While driving TO Uvita is perfectly doable via any vehicle, Flō is only accessible via 4x4 (four wheel drive). You’ll find that is pretty typical in any of the beach or mountain towns, as only the main highway through “downtown” is paved.
Costa Rica (outside of San Jose) does not have exact addresses like many other countries). So no, we can’t just give you the address to Flō. We always suggest that people use Waze or another directional service to find their way to Uvita Central. You can do this by using the Points of Interest function on a typical GPS, or just searching a location in Waze. Inputting the BCR Uvita (bank) or the Uvita Information Center will get you right to our “downtown.” Once you have a reserved and accepted event at Flō, we will happily distribute directions from Uvita Central to Flō in both English & Spanish.
Remember to always leave yourself 3+ hours to arrive in Uvita from San Jose. Traffic in the city can be congested at some hours, there is frequent construction on the highways due to the wet climate, and occasionally, roads are closed, necessitating detours. This is also important to remember on your ride back into the city, where SJO suggests you walk through the doors 3 hours before your international flight.
