Las Cruces Biological Station is located in the Pacific highlands of southern Costa Rica, 287 kilometers (178 miles) southeast of the capital city of San José. The drive by car from San José takes a minimum of 4.5 hours (without stopping). From Downtown San Jose, go east toward San Pedro and find the Interamerican Highway South (Route No. 2) Stay on this highway, passing Cerro de la Muerte Before descinding to San Isidro del General. Then head tower Buenos Aires, and after you have passed Buenos Aires drive some 25 kilometers more to find Paso Real, the entrance to the Coto Brus Valley. Take a sharp left turn at the Paso Real sign, crossing the bridge at Río Térraba; San Vito is 46 kilometers after the bridge. Once in San Vito, take the fork in front of the city¹s park; Las Cruces is some 5 kilometers south of San Vito. Look for the Wilson Garden/Las Cruces Biological Station.
