What Airport in Costa Rica do I fly into?

Getting to



For all group shuttle services you will need to make advanced reservations.

Shuttles from Liberia are easily arranged, one to four people costs $150, five people costs $200, six people is $240, and $40 each additional person. Additionally, car rental agencies are conveniently located near the Liberia airport. For reliable transportation services contact Bodhi Tree Resort reservations team.

You should plan to be at the airport two hours before your flight’s departure. This means that if your home-bound flight leaves from Liberia i.e. at 8 a.m., you would leave Bodhi Tree Resort at 4 a.m. to arrive in Liberia at 6 a.m. (two hours before your scheduled flight).

Rental Car: You may reserve your own rental car to drive from Liberia to Bodhi Tree Resort. However, a car is not needed during your stay with us. We recommend online bookings with toyotarent or natcar, as these car rental agencies allow one-way rentals for you to drop off your vehicle in Nosara. The cost of a one-day rental car with drop off in Nosara is usually around $100.


Flying to/from Nosara

You can also take a 40-minute flight from/to San Jose to/from the domestic Nosara Airport, which is only a 20-minute taxi ride from Bodhi Tree Resort. Taxis between Bodhi Tree Resort and Nosara Airport cost $20 one way.  Flight schedules from San Jose to Nosara usually require that your international flight arrives in San Jose at noon at the latest in order to catch the last flight at 2 p.m. from San Jose to Nosara.

A safer alternative is to arrive the day before and stay overnight in San Jose in order to take a morning flight.

There are two airlines with daily flights to and from Nosara: Nature Air and Sansa Airlines. Both airlines can impose luggage restrictions. To avoid excess baggage fees at the airport read the information on their websites carefully.

We like to recommend Nature Air, as they have been proving to be more reliable regarding their schedule. It does require, however, that you take a 20-minute taxi ride from San Jose International Airport to the local Pavas Airport (taxi ride costs $20 OR with the Nature Air shuttle it’s $8 per person).

For home bound flights on either airline out of Nosara we recommend that you plan ample connection time and give yourself at least 4 hours to make your departing international flight. Directions to Bodhi Tree Resort from Airports:


The first step to reach the North Pacific is to follow the “Autopista del Sol” (Highway 27) up to Caldera and from there follow the signs to Liberia which will lead you on the road called “Interamericana Norte”. Take the “Puente de la Amistad de Taiwan” or Tempisque Bridge which can be reached by following the signs to Liberia from Caldera and by turning left at the Shell Gas Station located after the entrance to a town called Las Juntas, at the turn you’ll see several signs. Follow the signs to Nicoya, through the Tempisque Bridge and turn left once you reach Nicoya. Go across the city in a straight line and continue following signs to Nosara. When you reach the gas station before Samara, you must take the right to a dirt road with signs pointing to Nosara. Continue for approximately 40 minutes until you start seeing signs to Playa Guiones.

What do I do if my flight is delayed?
If you are still in the US/Canada or Europe and miss a connecting flight or received notice that your flight’s departure to Costa Rica has been delayed, please call Blue Spirit’s US phone number: +1.646.833.3410 and we will re-arrange your shuttle pick up time. If you are already in the air and your arrival time is much later than scheduled, depending on how many passengers are already waiting in the van from previous flights, it is very possible the driver will wait for your late arrival. If you arrive late and your shuttle has already departed, you can take the next shuttle.

What do I do if I can’t find the driver or a Bodhi Tree Resort shuttle?
If you can’t find a Bodhi Tree Resort driver or shuttle please call their reception phone. Our team at Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort will be glad to assist you!
