The closest airport to Manuel Antonio is in Quepos, but I'm assuiming you meant INTERNATIONAL airport. As far as the 2 international airports are concerned, the SJ airport which is actually located on the way to the Pacific coast in Alajuela, is a little over 3 hours from MA. The international airport in Guancaste is in the provincial capital of Liberia which is maybe a little under 4 hours from MA. Since there is an airport in Quepos, you could also fly there direct from Alajuela. There are no direct domestic flights from Liberia to Quepos.
