Flying into Liberia Airport (LIR)

Daniel Oduber International Airport also known as Liberia Airport is located about 8 kilometers from the city of Liberia (10 minutes driving distance).

It is possible to rent a car in Liberia and drive it to Surfside or you might want to arrange a pickup in a 10-seater van that is very comfortable and affordable. The drive is approximately one hour to Surfside.

WestJet flies direct from Toronto to Liberia Airport on Saturdays and Mondays. Air Canada also flies direct to Liberia from Toronto but they tend to be more expensive. There are certainly plenty of other flights that come and go, but it is a real advantage to fly direct. The service started October 29, 2012. Non-stop flights to and from Toronto (YYZ) connect to other Canadian destinations.

Flying into San Jose Airport (SJO)

San Jose International Airport (Alajuela) is located just outside of the capital city San Jose in the Central Valley. It would take approximately 4.5-5 hours to drive to Surfside and that time would depend on weather and traffic. It would be advisable to stay overnight and make a fresh start in the morning as driving at night can be confusing. We are happy to recommend one of the hotels that we use in the San Jose area. We are not affiliated with these hotels in any way, so we cannot guarantee their service or prices. Links to their sites are below the map.
