San Isidro de El General

Getting Here and Around

The Pan-American Highway takes you straight into San Isidro. It's 129 km (80 miles) south of San José and about 1½ hours' drive south of the San Gerardo de Dota highway exit. Truck traffic can be heavy and painfully slow. Buses to Dominical leave San Isidro from the San Isidro bus terminal, 100 meters (328 feet) south and 200 meters (656 feet) east of the cathedral, near the main highway. Buses to San Gerardo de Rivas, the starting point of the trail into Chirripó National Park, depart from San Isidro at 5:30 am from the central park and at 2 pm from a stop at the central market.
