Costa Rica for Your Honeymoon

How to Get to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is located in Central America, the thin strip of land joining the North and South Americas. It’s below Nicaragua and above Panama.

Right in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. And about the size of West Virginia, so you’ll have the opportunity to explore both coasts.

Citizens of the United States can travel to Costa Rica for 60 days on a tourist visa, provided they have a return ticket and a US passport.

Flights are primarily scheduled to the capital city of San Jose. Here’s a breakdown of flight times from major US cities:

  • 5 1/2 hours from New York City
  • 6 hours from Los Angeles
  • 4 hours from Houston
  • 5 hours from Chicago

Once in Costa Rica, you have the option to rent a car or, like the locals, hop aboard the public transit. The local bus routes are fairly extensive, branching out from the main hub of San Jose.

If you’d like, you can also coordinate with our local touristy services to arrange transportation for you. It’s helpful to have someone else take care of all the details for when you touch down at the airport.

Then it’s time to start your honeymoon!
