          When traveling in from the U.S., what's the easiest option for getting to Tambor? It seems like most flights go into San Jose, which is pretty far from Tambor. Tambor Tropical's website mentions flying into Liberia, CR but doesn't mention a shuttle service from that airport. They do have shuttles from the Tambor airport, but you'd need to book a separate flight from San Jose to Tambor. Is that the easiest way, or does it make sense to fly into San Jose or Liberia and catch bus/car/ferry/whatever to get to the resort?
