Costa Rica is very well connected by air with the US, Europe, and Latin countries. Most international flights for San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, land at Juan Santamaria international airport.

One can opt for coaches that start from the airport at regular intervals. Alternatively, one can hire a taxi.
The other international airport is Daniel Oduber Quiros international airport, about 8 km from Liberia. The airport and Liberia is well connected with nearby beach resorts, like Playas del Coco via road. Lacsa is the national airline and it flies to many destinations in Cuba, Latin America, and the US.
Getting around and Accommodation
Travelling by air is the best way to travel in Costa Rica. Most people coming for plastic surgery in Costa Rica use this travel option. There are several domestic airlines, two most famous Nature Air and SANSA. Tourists can choose bus travel. Buses here are comfortable and affordable, especially when travelling between cities.
Another way to travel is via car. This is a great way to see the country in its true colors. San Jose and other big cities have many international car hire companies. In Costa Rica driving is done on the right. The quality of roads varies-in some areas it is good and in some it isn't.
You can also travel around San Jose through rail. INCOFER, the national rail operators, run a train from San Jose to Caldera every day. However, for travelling in Costa Rica, busses are a better option. Taxis are also available for hire. Give preference to licensed ones (red or orange color) and agree on a price before boarding.
Visitors from the US, Western Europe, Australia, and Canada don't need a visa. They only need a passport. Tourists from other countries require both.
Accommodation here is reasonably priced and graded as per quality. An accommodation having an A grade offers the best quality, while a D grade offers low-cost accommodation. You can opt to stay in a cabina, or wilderness lodge, when travelling around the country. Most hoteliers here speak English.
