Traveling To Costa Rica

All international flights arrive at San Jose International Airport (SJO), located in Alajuela.

Leela Rica is located between Quepos and Dominical on the Southern Pacific coast. The closest beach town is Matapalo. It is possible to take a bus from downtown San Jose, rent a car (best prices are with Thrifty when booked through vacationcity.com), or fly down on Sansa Airlines (flysansa.com).

Sansa Airlines fly daily from San Jose (SJO) to Quepos (XQP) but the last flight is around 3 pm. It is recommended to have 2 hours between arrival at SJO and departure flight on Sansa.The Domestic terminal is located next to the International terminal. After collecting your luggage, exit the terminal, turn left and walk one block along the sidewalk. There is a metal gate and a guard who will let you into the domestic terminal. You do not need a taxi between these terminals.

Included in weekly rate, we offer transfers to/from Quepos airport on Saturdays between 1and 3 pm and on Sundays between 1 and 4 pm. There is a 20$ surcharge for transfers outside of these hours.
