To arrive at the proper location, simply proceed 5.7 miles south of Highway 64 on Highway 21, or enter one of the following GPS coordinates into your navigation system

The entrance drive to the Casa del Gavilan is one and one quarter miles of dirt and gravel. This drive has an excellent rock base so it is no problem when wet, but it can be bumpy in areas. Numerous motorcyclists have driven this road with no problems. Some who ride motorcycles prefer not to ride on dirt and gravel roads. If you are riding a motorcycle, please be aware of this drive before making your reservations at the Casa del Gavilan.
