Flying In and Out of Costa Rica at San Jose International Airport
San Jose International Airport (SJO) is the most convenient airport to The Sanctuary. Frequent international flights are available at this modern airport.
For your travel, plan at least two hours between local air and international travel.
IMPORTANT: There is a departure tax of approximately $28 at San Jose International Airport when you leave Costa Rica.
By Local Air to Tambor, then by Taxi to The Sanctuary at Two Rivers
Two local airlines offer scheduled flights and charter services to Tambor Airstrip. The flight time is 25 minutes. Check for flights on either Sansa Airlines www.flysansa.com which is a 5 minute walk from the exit of the International Airport or Nature Air www.natureair.com which now departs from inside the International Airport terminal but you must clear Immigration and Customs first and then re-enter the building upstairs and check-in at their counter.
Please allow at least 1.5 hours from your International arrival time in order to clear Immigration and Customs and to check-in for the Domestic flight.
By Land to The Sanctuary
An option to flying, we can prearrange land transportation (shuttle bus for a group or private taxi for individuals) from San Jose directly to The Sanctuary via roads and a ferry that crosses Nicoya Bay to the Nicoya Peninsula. This might be economical for a large group and is approx. 5 hours. Prices start at $260.
Individuals can book their own shuttle through Montezuma Expeditions or Tropical Tours for approx. $50. Shuttles leave San Jose early every morning and will bring you directly to The Sanctuary. This is about a 6 hour trip.
We do not recommend renting a car.
