The Carrillo (Samara) Airport lies between the two beautiful beaches of Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. While Playa Samara has gained a reputation of being a fun loving town, Playa Carrillo is a more relaxed laidback beach with fewer crowds. As the airport is slightly closer to Playa Carrillo, it is often referred to as the Carrillo Airport. A small airport that mainly caters to domestic flights from SANSA and Nature Air, the airport also caters to private chartered flights within the country.

Neither Sansa (Taca Regional) or Nature Air has regular flights into the Carrillo (Samara) Airport. However you can charter a flight here with either airline. The flight from San Jose to Carrillo takes roughly 35 minutes.

If you are flying into the Carrillo (Samara) Domestic Airport, many hotels and resorts in the area often provide free shuttle services if you have an advance booking. However, there are plenty of taxis outside the airport that can take you to your destination.
