A good way to get to the corners of Costa Rica !!

If you don't have a lot of time, but don't want to miss some of the most incredible places, like Tortuguero, a cross country flight is the way to go.

Spend a weekend in Quepos or Tortuguero, for example, you can easily and relatively cheaply fly in puddle jumpers (twin or large single engine planes). Most flights last a half-hour or less, depending on stops.

Two main domestic airlines are Travelair and Sansa (Grupo Taca office building, near Sabana Park, which flies out of Juan Santamaría airport.

For reservations Click here !!

During the high season, flights are often full so you need to book in advance or at least try to get reservations as soon as you arrive in Costa Rica. Both airlines sell tickets through local travel agents – a good way to assure service. Travelair flights are more expensive but more dependable with their schedules. We favor them. Surfboards add another US $15-20 surcharge. Don’t bring a lot of luggage – there is a strict one-bag limit Cost is $60 and up, depending on your destination. Nearly all flights take off and return in the mornings as Costa Rica’s weather tends to deteriorate in the afternoons, especially in the rainy season.

All flights are VFR, Visual Flight Rules, because clouds and very tall mountains don’t mix.

AUTHOR TIP: You stand a better chance of getting a flight without a reservation when you’re coming back into San José than if you’re flying out. Keep calling to ask about cancellations, or have a travel agent call their contacts.
