Flights from Chicago to Liberia Guanacaste Costa Rica

Major airlines fly to Liberia Guanacaste Costa RicaYesterday I was asked about flights from Chicago to Liberia International Airport in Guanacaste Costa Rica and how long a trip it was.

There are three major airlines that fly between Chicago (ORD) and Liberia (LIR) and all of them require a change of planes. Delta connects through Atlanta and the minimum trip time is 6 hours and 40 minutes.  Continental connects through Houston and their minimum trip time is also 6 hours and 40 minutes. American connects through Miami and the minimum trip time for them is 8 hours and 15 minutes.

The Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport of Liberia is close to many Guanacaste beach communities and resorts on the northwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is less than a 30 minute drive to Playa del Coco, Playa Hermosa, Ocotal, Playa Panama and the Papagayo Peninsula. You should plan about 1 hour and 15 minutes for a shuttle to Playa Flamingo or Tamarindo.

These resort areas would be a 4 to 5 hour drive from San Jose Costa Rica (SJO) which has many more international flights than Liberia.

How do I get to my Costa Rica vacation home?

Sadly, there are no direct commercial flights from Tampa to Costa Rica, despite its popularity as a destination.

From Miami to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, it’s a 2 hour 45 min flight on American Airlines – cost for the sampled first week of July is $235 round trip (from Tampa it’s $359 RT)

American also flies from Miami to Liberia, which is less than 30 minutes from several resort areas in Guanacaste (north Pacific coast, same flight time, but $662 round trip for the same period (obviously less demand). From Tampa it’s $572 on American via Miami or $517 on Delta via Atlanta (interesting logic it’s cheaper when you add an extra flight on American).

From Orlando to San Jose, Jet Blue  flies 3 hours and 8 minutes, for $218 round trip for the same time period.

Spirit flies from Ft Lauderdale to San Jose for $228 round trip – and from Tampa to San Jose, changing planes in Ft Lauderdale, it’s just $238.

All these are captured at a moment in time, and have various fees, options, etc. but it gives you a general idea of flying back and forth to Costa Rica. It’s a lot easier and faster than flying to Hawaii.
