Airports in Costa Rica
The two international airports in Costa Rica are: Liberia International Airport (LIR – also called Daniel Oduber Quiros Airport) and San Jose International Airport (SJO – also called Juan Santamaria Airport). Both airports have frequent flights to and from all over the United States and Canada.
We recommend flying into Liberia International Airport (LIR), which has been recently expanded with increased numbers of flights from the US and Canada. This airport has become a destination of many non-stop flights from several US cities (New York, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, and Houston). From the airport you can take a shuttle which is a two and a half-hour drive scenic drive from Blue Spirit Costa Rica or take a take a 30-minute short domestic flight to the local Nosara Airport.
Flying to San Jose International Airport (SJO) is also an option as sometimes flights from the US, Canada, or other parts of the world are less expensive or more direct than flying into Liberia International Airport (LIR). Getting to Blue Spirit from San Jose International Airport (SJO) by ground transportation however is more costly and can take 5 hours.
An alternative option is to take a 40-minute short domestic flight from/to San Jose International Airport to/from the local Nosara Airport (only a 20-minute drive from Blue Spirit).
Whether you choose to fly into Liberia International Airport (LIR) or San Jose International Airport (SJO), there are a variety of options available for your travel onwards to Blue Spirit.
