Flying to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is well-connected to major international airports worldwide, making it convenient for guests traveling from various parts of the globe.

The two main airports in Costa Rica for international travelers are:

  • Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) in Liberia, closer to Tamarindo (preferred airport for our wedding)
  • Juan Santa María International Airport (SJO) in San Jose, the capital city.

Choosing Your Airport

For those of you joining us directly in Tamarindo, we recommend looking for flights that arrive at the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) in Liberia. This airport is approximately 1 to 1.5 hours away from Tamarindo, which means you'll have a shorter journey to the wedding destination.

However, Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) in San Jose is a larger airport and may have more viable flight options depending on where you are flying from. This airport is approx. a 4.5 hour drive to Tamarindo.

Transportation from the Airport to Tamarindo

Upon landing at the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), you'll have several options for getting to Tamarindo:

  • 3Monkeys Shuttle Service: We've partnered with a local transportation vendor (3 Monkeys) to offer a pickup shuttle from the airport to the hotel and a drop-off service back to the airport on your departure date, if needed.

To make things easy for you, we've set up a dedicated page for our wedding where you can fill out the Transportation Request Form with your arrival and payment details. Upon booking, you'll receive a confirmation email containing information. Approximately 1 week before your arrival date, you will receive an email from 3 Monkeys with payment info about payment, your pickup agent, and the location where you'll be picked up for your journey to Cala Luna.

While it's not mandatory for guests to book both incoming and outgoing transportation simultaneously, we highly recommend doing so, especially if you require drop-off service back to the airport on your departure date.

    Guests should complete the Transportation Request Form at least 2 weeks before their arrival date. This allows 3 Monkeys to organize group shuttles and shared transportation, resulting in more cost-effective rates for our guests. Booking less than 2 weeks in advance may lead to higher costs if scheduling with another group is not possible.
  • Rental Cars: If you prefer more flexibility in your travel plans, renting a car is a great option. Several reputable car rental companies operate at the airport, giving you the freedom to explore the area at your leisure.
  • Hotel Private Transfers: For added convenience and comfort, private transfer services are available via Hotel Cala Luna. These can be pre-booked, and a driver will meet you at the airport and take you directly to your accommodation in Tamarindo.

For comprehensive information regarding the transportation costs, please see our FAQ page.

Important Travel Tips

  • Passport and Visa: Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your travel dates. Depending on your nationality, you may or may not need a visa for Costa Rica. Check the latest entry requirements before your departure.
  • Travel Insurance: Consider purchasing travel insurance to safeguard your trip against unforeseen circumstances like flight cancellations or medical emergencies.
  • Pack Smart: Costa Rica's tropical climate calls for light and comfortable clothing. Don't forget to bring your beachwear, sunscreen, hats, and insect repellent.
  • Language: While English is widely spoken in tourist areas, having a few basic Spanish phrases handy can be helpful for interacting with locals.

We can't wait to welcome you to Tamarindo and celebrate our special day together. If you have any questions or need further assistance with your travel plans, feel free to reach out to us. Safe travels, and we'll see you in paradise! Pura Vida!
