Where is Selva Tropical Restaurant?

Our tour is leaving from San Jose to Tortuguero, but we want to continue to Arenal rather than return to San Jose. It's been suggested that we make arrangements to be picked up at the Selva Tropical Restaurant (where the tour stops for lunch on our way back to San Jose). My problem is I can't seem to locate what town this restaurant is in or near in order to arrange the transport. Can anyone help, please?

I think it may be in Puerta Viejo de Sarapiqui. I would ask the tour company for more specifics

I would think so as well, when I think of "La Selva Biological Station" being there. It's about 1 1/2 hr from SJ, so it makes sense as a stop. But best to get the address from the tour operator.

Some tours stop at Selva Verde Lodge for lunch. It is in the Sarapiqui area.

Just in case anyone is interested, the Selva Tropical is in Guapiles. We were able to make arrangements to be picked up from there by private transport. Thanks for everyone's help.

We want to pick a rented car in our way back from Tortuguero too, and we want to go to Cahuita National Park from there. What do you advice me to pick the car in Selva Tropical Restaurant or in Cariari? We are travelling this Easter. Did you take anything against Malaria? we are travelling with children and I hate giving them too many medicines.
