From SJO to Nature Air in 2 Hours?

My wife and I will be arriving at SJO at 9:45 a.m. Will we be able to catch the noon flight on Nature Air to Tambor?

Yes you can, once you exit the airport take an orange cab and they will take you in less than an hour to the nature air airport.

I think you will be cutting it pretty close! Who knows how long it will take you to get through customs and immigration and pick up your bags....could be 30-60 minutes, depending on how many other planes have landed around the same time as your flight.

Then you will have to get a cab to the Pavas airport and usually that takes about 30 min. Generally, you are supposed to check in at Nature Air at least 45 min. before your plane leaves.

Can you not get on a SANSA flight in the early afternoon? SANSA leaves from the same airport that you will be arriving at and is a 7 min. walk between terminals.

I agree with wefish on this one. It typically takes an hour to get out of the airport and 30 minutes to the airport in Pavas. It might take less...... it might take more.

I would try to rearrange or take a Sansa flight as wefish suggested.

Thanks, folks!

I thought that we'd be cutting it way too close, but I figured that the sooner we caught a plane to the west coast, the sooner we'd be able to get to the beach in Santa Teresa! There are other, later flights with both Sansa and NA.

Cidbob:

I totally understand the desire to maximize your beach time, but I would suggest that you try to get on the 1:30 SANSA flight. It will put you into Santa Teresa 1.5 hrs later....but you will not be rushed and you don't have to spend time and money on a cab to take you to the other airport and it will give you leisure time to stroll over to the SANSA terminal and be checked in well in advance of you flight!
