Costa Rica Airports

There are currently two international airports in Costa Rica. The largest, Juan Santamaría Airport (SJO) in Alajuela, is located within the Central Valley region north of San José. The other airport, Daniel Oduber Airport (LIR) in Liberia, facilitates access to destinations in the northwestern Guanacaste region.

Central Valley

From Alajuela, it's just a short taxi ride to downtown San José. It's also possible to skip the capital city and go straight for adventures in the volcanoes and jungles that makeup central Costa Rica.
