There are two international airports in Costa Rica . One is located in Liberia which services most of the charter flights to the Pacific beach resorts which becomes a busier destination each year and the other in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.

Liberia International Airport

Located in northern Costa Rica, the Liberia International Airport or the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport lies in Liberia the capital of Guanacaste province. Set up mainly to cater to those tourists who wish to enjoy the wonderful weather and great beaches of the North Pacific Coast the Liberia International Airport sits some 217 km northwest of the capital city San Jose.

Fast becoming a major international airport exclusively for tourists who want to enjoy Costa Rica’s gorgeous Pacific coastline, arriving at the Liberia International Airport is the quickest way to reach Nosara.
By arriving at the Liberia International Airport, you can catch a short domestic flight to Nosara or take a taxi (about 2,5 hours drive).

Many of our guests coming from San Jose choose the quickest and most convenient option for arriving here by taking an additional 40-minute flight. You have two Costa Rican airlines to choose from, Sansa and NatureAir , for multiple flights per day. Both are reputable, professional and reliable with excellent safety records. We can pick you up at the airport and bring you right to your room !


The Alfaro Bus makes the trip between San Jose and Nosara daily, leaving at 6am and 12:30pm respectively. Price is $6

Car Rental

If you would like a car reserved and waiting for you here, we'll be happy to arrange for the perfect, reliable vehicle, at a great rate from the variety of car rental agencies available in the area.

Cars can be rented at both the San Jose and Liberia airports, as well as here in Nosara. There are many car rental companies to choose from at the airports. Here in Nosara, your choices are National, Advantage, economy, Budget and Toyota. Rates and cars are comparable. If you plan to do much exploring outside of Guiones or Pelada, a rental car is recommended.

If you wish to drive from San Jose or Liberia , we can also provide you with a car there.

From San Jose , it should take you a little more than 4 hours to arrive in Nosara, with the recent completion of a new bridge over the Rio Tempisque. The route is easy to follow as you can see by the map .

Driving from Liberia is also very simple and should take about 2 hours.


One of the preferred methods for local transportation is the quiet, efficient (and shaded!) Electric Cart. You can go just about anywhere in the area on one of these ecologically sensible vehicles. Just let us know and we'll have one waiting for you !

Other options we can also provide for rent are gas-powered ATVs (quads”) and bicycles.
And for a special treat, take a horseback ride up into the jungles or along the beach !
