Liberia Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Not to be confused with the Western African nation, Liberia Airport serves the Central American nation of Costa Rica. The country is known for its stunning nature and diverse cultural heritage, with the northwestern coast, where the Liberia Airport is located, being no exception. These are three of the region’s most notable attractions:

  • Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park. Located just an hour’s drive northeast of the airport, Rincón de la Vieja is made up of a dry tropical forest, and, as suggested by its name, volcanoes. The diversity of fauna here is simply dizzying, especially when it comes to birdlife. If you’re visiting during the rainy season, hiring a 4x4 vehicle might be necessary, especially if you plan to get off the main roads.
  • Playas del Coco. Located just a stone’s throw from the airport in the other direction, Playas del Coco is one of the small coastal resort towns in the area (there are several others that you can also easily reach by driving south along the coast). In addition to splendid Pacific beaches, Playas del Coco has a salt dive center, is near a couple of surfing hotspots, and is the takeoff point for a number of wildlife viewing tours.
  • Guanacaste and Santa Rosa national parks. These other two national parks, which are only divided by the Pan-American Highway in the middle, provide yet more opportunities to enjoy the splendid nature of Costa Rica. The parks are very similar in size, with the biggest difference being that Santa Rosa includes a sizable coastal area of mangrove forests. Several wildlife refuges and conservation centers are under the authority of both parks, and some of their inhabitants include species like Baird’s tapirs, Geoffrey’s spider monkeys, and ocelots. Guanacaste also has some pre-Columbian petroglyphs. Located near the border with Nicaragua, the parks are only an hour’s drive from Liberia Airport.

Services and facilities

There are also ATMs, a bank, a currency exchange, a lost and found office at the information desk, an on-site hotel just across from the airport building, and the airport fire department.

Nearest gas station

Taller Mata Jara gas station can be reached in about 15 minutes. It’s in the city of Liberia, on Calle 40 between the corners of Avenida 9 and Avenida 11.

Popular one-way rentals

  • San José (222 km / 138 mi). The capital might not be the number one reason why most travelers go to Costa Rica, but for those who do venture there, San Jose has its fair share of delights. The highlights of the capital region include the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, the Jade Museum, and the nearby city of Cartago.
  • Limón (366 km / 227 mi). Also known as Puerto Limon, this city on the Atlantic Coast is famous for its nearby beautiful beaches, as well as the surrounding nature preserves like the Cahuita National Park and the Pacuare River.
  • Quepos (263 km / 163 mi). Another city that is best known for beautiful surrounding nature, Quepos is located right next to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Made up of impressive peaks, Pacific beaches, and long hiking trails, the park is home to unique wildlife species like black spiny-tailed iguana, white-nosed coati, Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth, and mantled howler monkey.
  • Alajuela (197 km / 122 mi). Although essentially a suburb of San Jose, Alajuela has plenty of things for a traveler to see and do. These include the Central Cathedral, Historic Cultural Museum of Juan Santamaria, and the nearby Poás Volcano National Park.
