How much time to leave for the airport?

by amyleer45

Hi all,
Due to business issues, I just had to change my flight out of San Jose to the U.S. to an earlier one, and now need to change my Sansa flight into San Jose to an earlier one. How much time do I need to comfortably get through the airport and out on time? Our flight is at 10:00 a.m. on a Sunday. Thanks.

Are you asking how much time to get thru the airport from your Sansa flight? 3 minutes.

The Sansa airport is no bigger than your house. You get off the plane, walk 20 yards to the airport and your bags are there 2 minutes later. You can probably walk from that airport to the big one, or take a cab that will get you there in 5 minutes.

Checking in the main airport in SJ doesn't take that long, but they do ask for a departure tax of.....$26? in US funds. and be prepared to show your passport at least 3 times.

if you land at 8:30 at Sansa airport, you should make a 10am flight. 8pm would be safer, and I'm a safe guy. I didn't leave on a sunday, but a tuesday-fyi.

First of all Bravo to you for your bravery as Sansa has had around 40 deaths in the last 10-12 years (including ramming into the Arenal Volcano - Seriously, you can google this!)- thought you should know that. the second detail would be that from the Sansa office you basically only need to be at the international airport about 1.5 hours before your international flight. Sansa doesnt really have an airport location, they have a little office next to the airport. so getting out of their is about as easy as taking your bag out of a car lol.
PS: If I sound a little peeved its because they have been cancelling a lot of their flights due to weather conditions and i got snubbed.

Travel Tips for San José

attack of the green men

by arasnosliw

Go figure....

This statue of green people is located outside of a very large and popular bank in SJ. There were several security guards surrounding the premises, dressed in green, looking rather similar to these statue people. Can you imagine what happened when I stopped for a second in front of the bank and ruffled through my bag to find my camera? The guards are startled and start to lift up their large guns. They looked kind of like AK-47s but I would't really know. One even preceded to point it at me and wander closer.

Traaaaaanquilo boys! It's merely a camera. I'm not going to go shoot up or bomb down your bank! Needless to say I scurried to take this shot and run far, far away.

The culture of Costa Rica can...

by gmcnee

The culture of Costa Rica can be summed up by their famous saying, 'Pura Vida', which is literally translated as 'Pure Life' in English. It's said by young and old alike. It's used as a response to '¿Como estas?' and means just living man, enjoying being alive, etc.
A second insight into the culture is that Costa Rica is going on 50 years of not having an army. They call themselves to be the Switzerland of Central America.
Lastly, as vistors will soon notice by the complexion of the populace, 95% of Costa Ricans are of pure Spanish blood very little mixing was done with the indigenous peoples for whatever reason.

Lankester Gardens

by grets

This is an orchid garden run by the University of Costa Rica. Originally a private garden run by a British orchid enthusiast, it is now open to the public.

Between February and April is the best time to visit the gardens to see most orchids in bloom.

There are over 800 species of orchids in these gardens, as well as many other plants and an arboretum

Nice enough airport. Arrivals is nice, bank services, quick customs etc.

Going home, we had a long wait. You must pay departure tax ($26) then join very badly organised que systems. Get here early, there are plenty of bars and shops once you get through security.

A taxi to downtown is $12. The meter seems to be rising very quickly, but that is only becasue it goes up in 1 pence intervals.

There is a cheaper bus service, but unless you are on a very tight budget, just get a taxi as the city isn't easy to navigate until you get your bearings.
