At the Hacienda Guachipelín gate, non-hotel guests must pay a fee of ₡700 colones per person for the use of the private road. This money goes directly to maintenance of the road and the parking area at the Las Pailas sector of the National Park. Both the road and parking area are maintained by Hacienda Guachipelín. From the gate, continue to the hotel; the Reception area is the second entrance on the left, past the restaurant. The Adventure Center is the first entrance on the left.
