8 Reasons Why


Costa Rica is located in Central America, south of Nicaragua and north of Panama. Costa Rica has two international airports: Juan Santamaria, in the Central Valley, and Daniel Oduber Quirós, in Guanacaste.

The country is easily accessible from the main cities in Latin America, North America, and Europe. Twenty-nine airlines offer more than 500 flights weekly.
