(Duration: 3:45min to 4hrs)
The Best way is driving through VARA BLANCA – SAN MIGUEL – AGUAS ZARCAS – MUELLE, then Road 35 North towards LOS CHILES.
From San Jose or Alajuela we recommend drive to VARA BLANCA (Poas Volcano Route). Ones in VARA BLANCA must to take the ROUTE #126 to SAN MIGUEL, then Route #140 to AGUA ZARCAS, then ROUTE #250 and #751 to get on ROUTE #4 towards MUELLE DE SAN CARLOS.
Once in MUELLE DE SAN CARLOS, drive NORTH on ROUTE #35 to LOS CHILES. Will pass by PAVON town (from Pavon keep heading North on Route #35 for 16-17km until you reach a deviation to Cano Negro), it has a little route sign pointing Cano Negro to the Left, from there are 19 km on gravel until you reach Natural Lodge Cano Negro.
Please notice: you are heading to Los Chiles BUT the deviation to Cano Negro is 8km before you arrive to Los Chiles town.
NOTE: (There are two other main ways to drive to Caño Negro 1)Through Ciudad Quesada or 2)Through San Ramon, however on either both you will find a lot more traffic and it will take a longer time than the Vara Blanca Route we are providing).
