lynne schedule 3If you make arrangements to arrive at the Liberia airport (LIR) between noon and 3 pm on March 24  and depart after 1 pm on March 30, 2019 we will have a shuttle pick you up at the Liberia airport and at the conclusion of the retreat, we will get you back to the Liberia airport at no extra cost. The travel time between the airport and Sugar Beach is approximately one hour and 15 minutes. The cost of this transportation is included in the price of the retreat as long as it is within the set time frames. Before you book your flight, please email us so we can support you in arriving at a time that works well for all involved.

If you decide to rent a car, which will not be necessary if you are participating in the art workshop portions, here are the directions to Sugar Beach.

Driving directions from Liberia to Hotel Sugar Beach: When you exit the airport service road, take a right and go 29 km to Belen intersection. At the Belen intersection, take a right following signs to Hotel Sugar Beach, Flamingo, Melia Conchal. Follow this road for 26 km through Huacas. Just after Huacas, take the first right following signs to Hotel Sugar Beach, Flamingo, etc. Stay on this road for 9 km passing through Brasilito. At the junction for Flamingo / Potrero, veer right onto the dirt road toward Potrero. After 7 km, this dirt road ends at Hotel Sugar Beach. There are a few hard turns, so watch for signs to the Hotel and for Potrero. Once in Potrero, drive around the soccer field to the northwest corner and continue on for only 3 km. The last hill is bumpy, but at the bottom you’ll find the entrance to the hotel.
