Where can you fly into in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica has two main airports. The San Jose International (or Juan Sanataria Airport), SJO, is located in Alajuela, just north of San Jose. This is the airport we here at the Reserva recommend you choose when coming to volunteer with us.

The other airport is Liberia International (Daniel Oduber Airport), LIR, which is located in the northern western part of Costa Rica. If you fly into Libera you will likely end up taking a secondary domestic flight to get to your destination in Costa Rica.

What are the domestic airlines in Costa Rica?

There are two domestic airline carriers – SANSA and Nature Air. Both offer the ability to book flights online and operate out of the San Jose (SJO) airport. If you are wanting to do more sightseeing while in Costa Rica, flying to your destination can save you a lot of time.
