There are two international airports in Costa Rica, the Juan Santa María International Airport (SJO), which is in Alajuela, and the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), which is located in Liberia. Passing through customs at either of the international airports is relatively stress-free. After collecting your luggage, you continue through a checkpoint where officials pass baggage through an X-ray machine. After this, you'll be able to leave the terminal and travel to your final destination. Usually travelers can expect it to take 45 minutes to exit the airport after they land.
