The Daniel Oduber Airport in Liberia, the capital of the Guanacaste Province, is only 80 km (50 miles) from the popular Tamarindo, Playa Conchal, Flamingo and Papagayo areas and also provides easy access to Monteverede, Arenal Volcano and other highland destinations. The popularity of this airport as an alternative to San Jose has increased steadily.

The state of the art terminal was opened January 12, 2012. In the past passengers had to wait in long lines under the hot sun and deal with the airport´s cramped waiting area. The new air-conditioned terminal dwarfs the older building in both size and capabilities.
