There are several places you can go “official” tourism information for Puntarenas. But as the official tourist board website, you must start with Visit Costa Rica.

Once at the Visit Costa Rica website click on “where to go” and then “Puntarenas and beaches” and you’ll find a wealth of information about this area and suggestions for things to do, places to stay and attractions to visit.

The website also offers interactive maps, and a call center so you can call with any further questions or concerns about your travel to Costa Rica in general, or Puntarenas in particular.

There is no tourist office specifically in Puntarenas, but the office in San Jose, just over the mountains, is known to be extremely helpful to first-time travelers. They are located at Plaza de la Cultura, Calle 5 and Avenida Central.

If you are in the United States or Canada, you can reach the call center at (866) CostaRica, or (866)267-8274.
