When you’re planning your trip to the centre, read this first. After that, one of the main things you need to consider is the timing of flights into San Jose, and onwards to Palmar Sur – this is why we actually recommend booking your local flight first. Book your flights here or contact us for assistance.
If your flight timing isn’t perfectly sequential you’ll need to stay a night in San Jose. There are many options for accommodations and you’re welcome to research and pick a spot. We have done our own research over many years and we’ve got two of our favourites to recommend to you:
1. Adventure Inn:
Over the years of coming to Costa Rica ourselves we have developed a strong relationship with the lovely folks at the Adventure Inn, which is only a short distance from the SJO airport (where you’ll arrive on your international flight). These folks have created a beautiful and friendly environment for all travellers to stay. They’ve also offered you (one of the Navina tribe) 10% off your stay if you follow this link, or use the coupon code: “navina” before completing your online reservation.
Airport shuttles are included, and you book them once you make your online room reservation (and you receive a confirmation email with the shuttle booking link within the email). Also, they offer an additional 10% off if you pay in cash on your departure!
2. Parque Del Lago:
Parque Del Lago is a boutique hotel, and we’re just setting up a new relationship with them! Soon we’ll get you a discount coupon for bookings here too, so hang tight. These folks are located a little further away from the SJO airport (the airport you fly into), but a little closer to the SYQ airport, which is where your Aerobell flight will be leaving from (if you’re flying to us!).
They’re also closer to downtown San Jose if you’re looking to experience the city itself. Their rooms and architecture are modern and their staff will take wonderful care of you. Airport shuttles are also included – you just have to make sure they know your arrival and departure plans.
