Location information for San Jose Airport

San José Airport in a nutshell

The airport of the capital of Costa Rica is located 17 kilometres to the north-west of San José, near the town of Alajuela. Officially, the airport is called Juan Santamaría, after a soldier who was killed in the war against the Americans in 1856. The airport has recently been privatised. The new owner has begun expanding and renovating the airport.

There is not train connection to the airport, but it is easy to reach by car and bus.

There are no hotels at the airport, but between the airport and San José there are a number of hotels. There are a limited number of shops, primarily souvenir shops. There are three fast-food restaurants, whose prices are pretty high. There are no business facilities, but there will be a business lounge after the renovation has been completed. In addition, the airport has three ATM's and an exchange office, which only exchanges small amounts at an unfavourable rate. The terminal building is reasonably accessible to disabled people.

In the aviation industry San Jose Airport is indicated with the abbreviations SJO (IATA airport code) and MROC (ICAO airport code).

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
