Getting to and from Ylang Ylang Beach Resort
1. Q. How do we get to the resort from Montezuma?
A. On the day of you check-in, simply go to the Front Desk at our hotel and restaurant in town, El Sano Banano. They will call our driver for you who will bring you and your luggage out to the resort in our beach car.
2. Q. How do we get back to Montezuma on the day of our check-out?
A. We have two shuttles back into town on the day of your check-out, either at 8:30 am or 11:00 am. If you would like to leave in between those two shuttles, your bags can be sent on the 8:30 am car and they will be kept at El Sano Banano’s Front Desk. You can walk to town whenever you like. If you would like to stay on the grounds and use the pool, hammocks or restaurant after check-out, your bags can be sent to El Sano Banano in the 11:00 am car. Upon request we have a 6:40am shuttle for guests who need to take the first flight out of Tambor or the ferry. Please ask our front desk if you will need to leave before 8:30am.
Please let our Front Desk know if you will need to leave the resort before 8:30 am.
Note: The reason for these car schedules is that we have limited beach access given by the government so we must consolidate our trips on the beach and also we want to drive as little as possible on the beach so as to limit our “footprints” on the environment.
U.S. Dollars vs. local Colones
1. Q. Do you recommend U.S. Dollars or local Colones?
A. You can pay in most places with Dollars but we recommend to have Colones for the smaller restaurants and stores. You will get the best exchange rate from an ATM as opposed to exchanging Dollars for Colones. There is a convenient ATM right outside the airport as well as one in Montezuma.
