We pick people up at the Liberia, Costa Rica International Airport (LIR), also know as the Daniel Oduber International Airport. Our facility is located 30 minutes from the airport just outside of Liberia, Costa Rica. The best time to arrive is mid-day (around noon) on the opening day of the session (usually the 3rd, 13th or 23rd of every month). If you have trouble flying in on that day and would like to fly a day early, you can have a taxi take you to the Hilton Garden Inn or the Best Western El Sitio near the airport and we can pick you up there on the opening day of the session around noon.
We recommend the above method to arrive due to less complications, especially for anyone participating in the Addiction Detox Program. If you are flying in from Europe or have trouble getting a flight to the Liberia, Costa Rica Airport…alternatively you can fly into the San Jose, Costa Rica Airport (SJO) the day before and stay at a hotel there that night. The Hampton Inn is very close to the San Jose Airport and is reasonably priced. The next morning you can take a bus through the Pulmitan de Liberia Bus Company (bus station is located in downtown San Jose) to the Liberia bus station and we can pick you up there around mid-day on the opening day of the session. There is a bus that leaves every hour up until 5pm. The ride is 4.5 hours and costs around $5 USD. There is also a company that offers service between Costa Rican hotels, here is their website: Graylinecostarica.com Or you can take a domestic flight early that morning through Sansa Airlines from the San Jose Airport to the Liberia Airport. It is a 45 minute flight and usually costs around $100 for a one way ticket. You can book tickets with Sansa Airlines online.
