Journey to A World Apart

Situated in the Central Time Zone, flying times from many major US cities to Guanacaste range from three to five hours, making it one of the more readily accessible exotic destinations. Guanacaste’s newly expanded Liberia International Airport (LIR) lies just 30 minutes away from Peninsula Papagayo’s doorstep. Or arrive via San José International Airport (SJO) and board a 40-minute hopper flight to Liberia.

By land, amble over pastoral countryside and through scenic sabanero country to the private entry of Peninsula Papagayo, where curated adventures and an unrivaled lifestyle bring you as close as you can get to nature.



With more than two million visitors each year, Costa Rica is currently—and consistently—one of the hottest vacation and adventure travel destinations in Latin America. Liberia’s modern and efficient Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, expanding capacity to receive five new airlines by November 2017, is Central America’s ninth busiest airport and Costa Rica’s second. In 2015, the airport reported a record 878,365 passengers, a 12.7% increase compared to 2014.



Direct flights to Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport from major global gateway cities put people 2-3 hours from Atlanta, Miami and Houston. You can also fly direct from New York, Newark, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, Baltimore, Boston, St. Louis, Montréal, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, San Salvador, Panama City and London. Recently added nonstop flights from Los Angeles International Airport make the peninsula even more accessible to a new wave of West Coast travelers who can now get to Liberia in less time than Hawaii.
