The Travel Guide to the Peninsula de Nicoya, Costa Rica, with detailed Maps, Hotels and Tourist Information
For domestic flights in Costa Rica there is only one company left: Sansa Airlines has its terminal for national flights at the Juan Santamaria International airport (SJO) in the town of Alajuela, 40 km east of Costa Rica's capital San José.
Costa Rica's other national carrier, Nature Air, does not operate any more. All flights have been suspended in May 2018. Still their website is up and it's possible to book flights but the airline does not fulfill them.
Sansa flies with small aircraft so you have to observe their restrictions about weight and space for your luggage. In general each passenger has a luggage allowance of around 15 - 30 lbs. Additional weight has to be paid extra.
