  • If you are planning to visit several destinations within Costa Rica, it might make sense to plan for a multi-destination air ticket, flying into San Jose International Airport (SJO) and leaving from Liberia International Airport (LIR).
  • While the local currency is the Costa Rican Colon, travellers should note that US dollars are also widely accepted throughout the country. You might want to check which conversion rate is best prior to your departure.
  • Credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted, and ATMs are easily available in Costa Rican cities and airports. It is advisable that you carry some cash if you travel to more remote areas within the country.
  • If you want to visit Arenal Volcano, consider catching a flight from San Jose Airport to La Fortuna Arenal Airport (FON), approximately 20 km away from the volcano.
  • The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve with its stunning biodiversity and vast range of activities is about a 4h drive from both international airports. If you’re planning to visit this reserve, choose a flight based on your remaining itinerary or the best possible offer.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in CAD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
