There are two international airports in Costa Rica.
1. Liberia International Airport (LIR) is located in northwestern Costa Rica, about two hours' drive from Blue Spirit. From here, you have two options for getting to Blue Spirit:
- Omega offers a shuttle service to and from Liberia International Airport (advance reservations are necessary; see below).
- Rent a car and drive yourself, although a car is not needed during your stay. We recommend renting from National or Toyota, which both have drop-off points in Nosara. The last 40 minutes of the ride is unpaved, though it is a fairly easy drive.
2. San Jose International Airport (SJO) is located about 20 miles outside of San Jose, Costa Rica's capital city, about a five-hour drive from Blue Spirit. We recommend using Liberia International Airport (see above). If you would like additional information about traveling to or from San Jose International Airport, please contact Blue Spirit via inquiry form, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone at 845.684.2007.
