(QCOSTRICA TRAVEL) Commercial flights to Costa Rica continue though the arrival of tourists is prohibited until June 15, and international flight arrivals are permitted only at the Juan Santamaria International (SJO) airport in San Jose.

The incoming flights are called “repatriation flights” for only Costa Ricans and residents (who did not leave the country after March 24) are permitted entry.

But don’t expect prices to be cheap. For example, the lowest price of a one-way ticket for the May 29 flight is US$747, a little cheaper on Monday, June 1, US$637.

The outgoing flight (open to anyone who can enter the U.S. and can afford it), leaving the San Jose airport at 12 noon, is US$ 1,213. Again, cheaper for the June 1 flight, US$1,018.

Passengers arriving in Costa Rica are issued a 14-day home isolation order and will be tested for the coronavirus.
