How to get to Playa Flamingo
From Liberia Airport, it is about a 1 hour drive. You can find the route on Waze and make sure it is the route through Huacas via Route 21 and Route 155 so you take the fully paved road. Sometimes Waze will try to take you through Route 911 which is an unpaved, narrow and curvy road so if you aren’t renting a high car, do not go on that route. Huacas and Belen are all on well paved roads and the difference in time is really not much at all.
