Pavas vs SJO to downtown

Looking to fly into San Jose using Sansa of Nature Air, is there a significant difference in taxi cost/time to the Presidente Hotel? It looks like the Pavas airport is closer to downtown, but cannot tell from the posters...

Thanks!

Thanks, Sara! Nature Air had the lower cost flight as well, so this makes the decision much easier.

I always like Hotel Colours in Pavas/Rohmoser. That is where I stay when I am in San Jose. It is close to both airports and does not have the congestion of downtown.

SJO is about 18km from where the Presidente is located downtown. Not sure about the exact distance but Pavas is only maybe 8-10kms away so the taxi so the cabfare should be only about half or $10-12 vs. ~$25. Whether that constitutes "just a little cheaper" or "not much" difference or not is a matter of opinion, but all other things not being equal (Nature Air offering lower airfares) IMHO this is really a no-brainer.

Also, an FYI, it may not matter to you, but I think you might want to know that Hotel Colours is a gay-friendly hotel and markets itself that way.
