Getting to/from Tamarindo


The Liberia International Airport is the closest airport to fly into and is approximately 30-45 minutes from Tamarindo. We are flying with Southwest Airlines (we love the Chase Southwest credit card for racking up points)!


Contact our wonderful travel agency to take adantage of the following options:

Shared group shuttle transfers are available from Liberia’s Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) for $20-$25 per person, one-way.

A private van transfer will run around $110, one way for up to 4 people, with a charge of $10 per person for each additional person.

Private transfers are available from San Jose’s Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO).
It is best, by far, to fly in and out of Liberia.

Car Rental

We rented a car when we visited Costa Rica a few years ago. It is a wonderful way if you are more adventurous and would like to do some solo exploring of the different beaches in the Guanacaste region.
In Costa Rica, your car rental includes mandatory liability insurance. Always ask if the rental price you’re quoted includes the liability insurance. Some companies like to tack it on as a little surprise when you pick up the car (this happened to us!!).  If you have collision damage waiver insurance on your credit card, you may be able to waive the rental agencies CDW insurance, but check with your credit card company first.
