The Problem: Costa Rica is known for its rouged beauty and mountainous terrain. Although, it is beautiful to look at, it is often not easy to drive to your destination. Traditionally it takes many hours by car to travel short distances due to road conditions, whether and mountain passes. These factors can take valuable time away from your business trip or vacation.
The Solution: With helicopters, you can now travel to any of the four corners of Costa Rica in practically minutes! Our helicopter network provides many convenient arrival and departure locations from most of the main towns, like Jaco, Manuel Antonio, Liberia, Flamingo, Tortuguero, Alajuela, San Jose, Papagayo, Tamarindo, Tambor, Quepos and Golfito. All these destinations have landing areas for helicopter. In addition, many of the leading, high end hotels also provide heli-pads, like The Marriott, The Fours Seasons Resort and Barcelo International, to name a few. Many hospitals also provide heli-pads for medevac services. The Cima Hospital in Escazu, San Jose, one of the leading hospitals in Costa Rica, provides easy access for helicopters. It is also minutes away from the Juan Santamaria, San Jose International Airport, by helicopter for emergency, international medical evacuations.
It takes only a few minutes to reserve one of our fully certified and professionally maintained helicopters. We offer a fleet of helicopters unmatched in Costa Rica with two, four, six and 14 passenger helicopters. Some of these have executive business amenities such as Bose headsets for noise reduction and communication to the pilot and other passengers, DVD with monitors, and are fully air-conditioned. These turbine helicopters are piloted by certified, bilingual pilots, rated as the best in the country.
Most helipad facilities are well appointed with a V.I.P. lounge that includes bathrooms, internet service, magazines and hot or cold beverages and food. Business people looking to save travel time prefer charter helicopter services to get to where they want to go, when they want to go there. Rates can be by the hour, day or week.
