        Now direct flights from S.A. to Guanacaste.

Friends from Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay…  the doors of Costa Rica and especially Guanacaste, are wide open to you.

With two weekly flights connecting the Hub of the Americas (Panama City) with the airport of Liberia (LIR), Copa is now enabling South American tourists to fly directly to Guanacaste, landing in a modern airport located just 30 minutes from the main beaches.


We asked Elisa Brenes, Regional Manager of Copa Airlines… Why the bet on Guanacaste?

“It seemed to all of us at Copa that Guanacaste had a clear potential to grow exponentially. Furthermore, there is quality of services, organization and infrastructure.  Guanacaste offers tremendous quality to tourists and has a large variety of attractions to satisfies all types of travelers”.
“In other words, Guanacaste is not just sun and beaches, but it is also volcanoes, scuba diving, surf, ecotourism, hot springs and more. Guanacaste really is a versatile destination…not one where you want to stay at your hotel sunbathing, but a destination for adventure ­– to go out and experience. Our customers were asking for a destination like this.”

Likewise, Allan Flores, Minister of Tourism, informed us that “in order to ensure the success of this flight the ICT has put a campaign in place in the southern continent, in order to create awareness and allow people to better understand and compare the many advantages of one destination over the others that are currently preferred by South Americans. Moreover, in alliance with COPA we have been bringing representatives from the majority of travel agencies of South America and the airline is also strongly promoting the destination among its clients and affiliates.”


This is evident on Copa’s website, where Guanacaste appears on the main banner on the site, linking to a special page about Guanacaste.


As a Chilean living in Guanacaste, I know that this destination has the capacity to mesmerize and enchant all of Latin Americans. It’s tested and approved!

I invite you all to discover it.
