Getting Here

Arrival in Costa Rica: International flights arrive at the Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose (Alajuela), in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. From there, it is approximately a 2 hour drive from the airport to our house on the beach.


Connecting flights from San Jose to the Quepos airport 20-30 minutes from our house are also available, using one of the local commuter airlines.  


Timing Your Arrival & Departure: We find that we prefer to time our flight arrivals and departures at the airport in San Jose for midday, if at all possible, to allow time to drive to and from the house during daylight. If your flight arrives late at night or departs early in the morning, you may wish to consider staying overnight before or after in the vicinity of the airport. We can provide you with some good hotel recommendations if you need to do this. See our Resources page. 


Baggage & Customs:       Each airline is a little different, but in general, you are allowed two checked bags at a maximum of 50 lbs each, plus your carry on.


Location:  La Fiaca is located on Playa Bandera, also known as Playa Palma, just west of the town of Parrita, between Jaco and Quepos, in the state of Puntarenas on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.
