Paying Departure Taxes in advance

I have heard that lines at Liberia airport can be very long if you have not paid your depature taxes in advance. Does anyone know how/where to do so?

we've done it a few times and i would say the range of time spent paying the tax has ranged from about 2 minutes to about 15 minutes. that's not to say that it can't take longer but that's been our experience. we've flown out of both san jose and liberia...same deal at both. good luck. scott

You can pay the departure tax at the airport when you arrive, while waiting to clear customs. You'll see a little booth in the corner on the "tourists" side of customs. The only drawback of paying when you arrive is that you have to ensure not to lose your stub.

We booked through Worry Free Vacations. Their package already included the departure tax (which I was unaware of until I read our itinerary). Check with your travel agent...you may have already paid it.
