Getting around San José

Juan Santamaria Airport is located just 12-kilometres away from San José. If you’re staying in San José we’d recommend pre-booking a transfer. You’ll be given the opportunity to add a private door-to-door transfer once you’ve booked your flight or holiday. If you don’t book a transfer, then Taxi Aeropuerto are a reliable way into the city and can be booked directly outside the airport. You can get to the centre for around $25-30. You can also get street taxis into the city, but these will vary in price, sometimes wildly depending on traffic.
