How to get to Costa Rica

With Nicaragua in the North and Panama in the southeast, the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, there are a number of ways to reach the little Central American country of Costa Rica. Begin planning for your tropical vacation by reserving a Costa Rica car hire.

When adding Costa Rica to your travels around Central America it can be a very practical choice to reach the country by boat. There is twice daily boat service from Los Chiles to San Carlos, Nicaragua. Small ship cruises carrying less than 100 passengers begin in Panama and end in Costa Rica or reverse, taking tourists past popular National Parks such as Manuel Antonio.

Most visitors arrive via Costa Rica's main airport, Juan Santamaria. Located in the heart of the country in the city of Alajuela, it is only 30 minutes from San Jose, where the country's major bus stations run transportation to virtually every location in the country within a day. You can arrange for a Costa Rica car hire to await your arrival at Juan Santamaria Airport.

For fast transport to the perfect surf vacation fly into the airport closest to the popular beaches of the Pacific Northwest coast. Daniel Oduber Quiros International airport is located near Liberia in the Guanacaste province, and is often just called Liberia Airport.  Another benefit of choosing this airport over Juan Santamaria is it handles far less traffic and tends to be less crowded, meaning shorter lines in and out of customs. It is also farther away from congested cities, meaning that if your destination is in the north you will get there hours faster. Book a rental car in Costa Rica to meet you at Daniel Oduber Airport.
