 Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia has come a long way since opening in 2012.

 Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia has come a long way since opening in 2012.

The  terminal at the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, capital of the northwest province of Guanacaste, opened its doors to the public in 2012 Tourists  were finally able to enjoy the $41 million project by concessionaire Coriport. To say that the International airport has changed the face of Tourism for Guanacaste’s Pacific Gold Coast would be a vast understatement. In fact the airport met with such high demand that an expansion project began in  2016 only 4 years after opening its doors and was completed in late 2017.

Airport administrator Corporación Interamericana de Inversiones (CORIPORT) invested $10.3 million to expand the terminal and increase its  capacity by about 20 percent.

The project consisted of building new boarding gates, VIP lounges, shops and offices over an area of 2,633 square meters (some 28,340 square feet). It also involved the renovation of 1,485 square meters (16,000 square ft) of current waiting and baggage claim areas.

The company  installed a new X-ray system, new video and audio systems for passenger information, and an improved wireless network for Internet access.

CORIPORT General Manager César Jaramillo said in a news release that the company hoped all these improvements will allow it to continue offering first-class service for travelers. The expansion enabled the terminal to receive new flights from at least five more airlines in the short term, he said.

 The Covid Crisis  put a real damper on the tourism trade but the Airport which is located in Liberia, The capital city of the Guanacaste province has since resumed and even expanded incoming flights. 

Starting September 13, United Airlines flies daily from Houston, Texas to Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) near San José, and thrice weekly to Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) in Liberia, Guanacaste.

In addition, United Airlines increased its October offerings from Newark, New Jersey, to Costa Rica. The airline projects daily service to SJO, and Saturday flights to LIR.

At the end of October, United Airlines  launched a flight to Costa Rica from Denver, Colorado, according to the ICT, which coordinates with airlines and the Civil Aviation Administration (DGAC).

The possibilites available upon touching down have expanded greatly since the Airport’s inception in 2012 offering a wide array of tourism activities and of course Guanacaste’s renowned perfect winter weather and abundant wellness and ecologically friendly offerings.

 An important thing to remember when planning your Costa Rican vacation  is choosing the right airport to diminish overall travel time during your visit your stay. If the cooler central valley weather and cultural offerings of the capitol of San Jose are more your your wont, then the Juan Santa Maria airport in San Jose is your best bet, however if you are after the water activities of the Guanacaste Gold Coast beaches then the Liberia International Airport is the correct choice, remember thebeaches of the northern Pacific coast are a 6 hour drive from the capitol city so choose your landing city carefully. 

 The Liberia airport website is a great resource providing many options for getting you from the airport to many of the favorite destinations on the gold coast

Now that Costa Rica has begun to reopen its doors  We all could use a beautiful tropical break

Get out your passports, pack your bags, and grab the sunscreen, folks, because we just got word that Costa Rica has finally opened up their borders to all U.S. travelers beginning Nov. 1, 2020!   Doesn’t relaxing on a nice sunny beach or exploring this  unique tropical destination sound like a pretty nice escape after all we have been through this year?

Personally, I love Costa Rica, and I am certainly not the only one. Last year, this amazing place was named “Mexico & Central America’s Leading Destination” at the 2019 World Travel Awards. When Cancun, Cozumel, Cabo, Belize, and Puerto Vallarta are just some of  your competitors, that is definitely saying a lot. With its postcard-perfect beaches and waterfalls, incredible diversity of wildlife (monkeys are everywhere!), pristine forests, elaborate ecosystems, and fabulous fun adventures,  the honor was well deserved. More families are turning to a Tamarindo home for rent for vacation for their Costa Rica Experience. With the pent up frustration and nation wide Covid fatigue Costa Ricas gold coast is an attractive safe option for many families. 

Tamarindo Costa Rica has grown in popularity in recent years among all forms of international travelers and is a national favorite during Christmas and Easter vacations. While Tamarindo has become the countrys number 1 tourist destination it has retained that sleepy surf town vibe and there is only so much beach so it will stay that way thankfully.

So if you are searching for a home for rent for your vacation there are many reputable vacation rental companies listed in our directory and many owners using such platforms as VRBO and Home Away to manage and market their vacation rentals but you can also contact many owners through our vacation rentals by owner category in our business directory.

The selection of homes for rent for vacation has grown immensely in recent years and families can choose from beach front mansions to exquisitely designed and decorated hillside homes with sweeping views of Playa Grande, the Tamarindo estuary and south towards beautiful Playa Langosta. The growth of Tamarindo has resulted in one tangible benefit for this admitted food snob. Culinary possibilities abound from Argentine grills to French  fine dining beachside. Sushi to middle Eastern are all represented but I am still waiting for a good Indian restaurant if anybodys listening. Bottom line Tamarindo homes for rent for vacation are plentiful and afford a perfect jumping off point for all brands of family friendly adventure and eco tourism.

Finding a Tamarindo Beach House for Rent has never been easier in a Covid World

Finding a Tamarindo Beach House for Rent has never been easier in a Covid World

Finding a Tamarindo Beach House for Rent or buy is finally becoming easier in our Covid World

Four months into a virtual worldwide lockdown for US travelers, reaching a vacation home abroad has been impossible or too risky to even consider — leaving these homeowners challenged and their homes largely abandoned. Dream houses in far-flung regions are still extant, leaving homeowners to navigate upkeep and associated costs from afar instead of checking in — and enjoying — in person.
What was once predictable, annual travel for these owners has now been entirely upended. Is the solution to sell? Perhaps rent it out? Now that vaccines are in the approval process and an end, while distant is in sight, the world including the small country of Costa Rica is breathing collective sighs of relief and easing travel restrictions and its beginning to look like there may be something to salvage out of the 2021 winter season for owners of beach homes for rent in Tamarindo . Just ask Brian and Carrie Bratton owners of Tamarindo Luxury villas a high end vacation rental agency in Tamarindo, Costa Rica which is now  the country’s number 1 tourist destination. By all indications from this observant industry watcher the pent up frustrations of being cooped up for 8 months has led to virus fatigue and a strong resurgence of vitality in both rentals and luxury real estate sales in the area. Rather a surprise when 8 months ago well known realtor Rebecca Clower of Blue Water Properties was expressing deep concern about her many employees and agents  and their ability to support their families 8 months later they are on fire again. To what tis is attributable its difficult to say. Perhaps sensing the end of the crisis is near there is a new and profound appreciation for making every day count and being thankful after a period of devastating loss

Just to set the stage Julius and I visited Patagonia del Mar last March right at the beginning of the Covid crisis pre masks although elbow bumps were beginning to become standard. The restaurant was abuzz with many families and friendly faces of  people we both knew. This restaurant space has seen many incarnations over the years starting with the first owners Charlie and Claire Mayne who were subjects of a British TV show along the lines of “start a new life” out of Britain. (if any of you know what happened to these lovely people tell them Rodgers would love to catch up.) They named the restaurant Perro Plano (flat dog) which is little known local slang for the point jutting out from the Puerto Viejo end of Playa conchal and resembles a crocodile which is what Perro Plano means in Tico slang. next came the venerable Mike Osborne who opened the Happy Snapper after his original building was torn down on the Brasilito beach front when the government finally got around to enforcing the maritime laws and enforcing the long range strategic plan for the Brasilito waterfront. A plan I have seen and will see several more buildings come dpwn on that same waterfont. The first sign we were in for a treat was that the restaurant was packed on a Sunday afternoon even with the Covid crisis looming; The second signs we were in for a fine dining experience came in rapid succesion. A tall vodka and tonic in a real highball glass may have been a little slow but any well made drink in a real glass is a true treat after 15 years in Costa Rica. The second sign was a delicious freshly made bread with a delicious olive tapenade. Good start for sure. Staff was friendly familiar and very attentive and with the children playing in the nearby pool and the Pacific sparkling a few meters away the setting was lovely with people clearly enjoying themselves. The entrees were quite lovely mine was shrimp prepared 3 ways and even though its a bit dim in memory I recall being quite pleased with the food and I am known to be difficult to please with many years under my belt managing fine dining rooms in Boston and New York. In conclusion I can only hope Patagonia del Mar weathered this virus crisis well along with their sister restaurant in Tamarindo which I have yet to have the pleasure to review but soon will I hope. If they maintain similar standards as their sister restaurant there is something to look forward to upon my return to Costa Rica.
