Domestic Flights

Save time with Domestic Flights in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama

How to get around in Costa Rica without losing too much time? The answer: Domestic flights. There are a few domestic airlines which serve many small landing strips or airports in Costa Rica. They use uvitasmall, 10 to 20 passenger propeller planes. A 25 minute flight can save you half a day of driving! However, many routes fly via San José so they are not always ideal for getting to/from other areas. We work mainly with Sansa Airlines, that uses a new fleet of Cessna Grand Caravan planes, but also with a few other providers, who, depending on your route, may have the better offer for you. Sansa flies out of Juan Santamaria Domestic Airport, most of the others from Tobias Bolaños (Pavas) Airport.

If schedules and destinations don’t fit your needs, we can also arrange a charter or helicopter flight to the destination and at the time you desire. This includes Costa Rican airports which may not be offered by the regular domestic airlines. In our transport planner we implemented the often requested option to fly from San Jose to the southern Caribbean. We now offer this flight including onward transportation to your hotel.

If you plan to visit Bocas del Toro, Panama, but do not want to spend much time on a shuttle and boat, then flying there is your best bet. Skyway is a new airline offering daily flights from San Jose to Bocas del Toro and vice versus. We also offer domestic flights within Panama, e.g. from Panama City to Bocas del Toro. Use the transport planner below for more information.
