All depends like everywhere what wine you are looking for...

In Costa Rica we pay some nice taxes on wine...the best bring your own...or buy some at duty free ...you can bring up to 10 bottles per person!

If you don't bring your own, supermarkets have wine but it is kind of expensive $10-$15 for a decent Argentinian wine. It is all imported since we don't have grapes in Costa Rica.

Rizan, I agree with Roadadvisor and Jose about bringing your own. However, should you find yourself running through those 10 per person limit (I most certainly hope that you don't but you never know...) I have found that the AutoMercado in Tamarindo has the largest selection in the area.

BW one never knows, may need to make that Tamarindo run :o)

I thought I read somewhere that Liberia does not have a duty free shop for incoming flights, so this isnt the case?

Yes, you can buy your Duty Free on arrival in this country. Most major airports in this territory have arrivals duty free shopping facilities in the baggage claim area where you can buy tax-free goods before you pass through customs. This facility not only enables you to pick up any last minute items that you were unable to buy at your outbound airport, but it gives you the inbound duty free opportunity to buy liquid products such as spirits or wine, so you can avoid potential problems like confiscation by security. More airports are now introducing an online duty free and tax-free pre-order service, this allows you to arrange the purchase of goods before your departure. This may be useful as the sale of liquid products (especially alcohol) and known as 'LAGS', can often be restricted at your departure location due to airport or airline security regulations and although these regulations are gradually being lifted, shopping at arrival and online pre-order can alleviate this problem.
