Comfort but old plane. Lack of tomato juice.

Friendly crew!

Jan 22, 2020

These are small planes that take you from place to place in Costa Rica. This is adventure travel and not for the timid or fearful traveler.

We waited over an hour after boarding, I think something in the cockpit had to be fixed

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Puntarenas

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport restaurants and less time moving through security on your way to Puntarenas, just follow these helpful tips:

  • Be sure you know the location of your boarding pass and travel ID. You don't want to hold up the line when you're asked to hand them over.
  • Wallets, belts and power banks are to be put in a bin for X-raying. If you walk into the body scanner with any one of these items, you'll be turned around and requested to remove them.
  • Make sure your laptop, phone and other electronic devices are within reach. These items need to be put through the X-ray machine in separate trays.
  • Hand cream, toothpaste and other toiletry items in gel, liquid or cream form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Airport security staff will likely ask you to remove your shoes for the body scanner. Pick a pair that slip off easily. There's nothing worse than having to do your laces up again and again.
  • Some places have stringent quarantine laws. Think about where you're headed to and whether or not you can travel with unpackaged foods.
*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
