Flights to the Nicoya Peninsula

For flights in Costa Rica there are two domestic airline companies: Sansa and Nature Air. Both have their terminal for national flights right by the Juan Santamaria International airport (SJO) in the town of Alajuela, 40 km east of Costa Rica's capital San José.

Sansa and Nature Air fly with small aircraft so they have weight and space restrictions. In general each passenger has a luggage allowance of around 15 - 30 lbs.
