Best airport to fly in to?

My hubby and I are headed to Montezuma in January, is it best to fly into the San Jose or Liberia airport? Thanks!

Either one. It's about the same amount of time. If you are only going to Montezuma, it won't matter. If you are going somewhere else, it might matter.


LIR Liberia is about 15 minutes west of the town of Liberia. SJO San Jose is actually in Alajuela, not San Jose.

If the flight arrangements and ticket prices are similar, then I would pick LIR Liberia simply because it's a lot easier and quicker to get in and out. No traffic issues and a bit smaller airport.
