Entering Costa Rica by air, car and cruise ship are all popular and convenient. By car, driving via Panama and Nicaragua is possible, usually through the Pan American Highway, the continent’s official north-south corridor. By port, the cruise ships main stopovers are the ports of Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera), on the Pacific side and Puerto Limon, on the Atlantic. However, by far, the most common gateways are Costa Rica’s international airports, which is the subject of this blog. Costa Rica has two busy international airports with hundreds of regularly scheduled flights by commercial airlines.
