1. Best Airport: San Jose (SJO) or Liberia (LIR)
Although there are more flights heading into SJO, most of them leave in the morning, which is unappealing to people who don’t like mornings or morning airport shuffles.
Of course, if you fly into LIR, your two travel options available are a rental car or private transfer. A Shared Shuttle is also an option, but like flights into SJO, it is only available in the morning, often just once a day, so planning on using the Shared Shuttle can be tricky, and if your flight is delayed, you might miss it.
