If someone needs or wants to take a helicopter ride, they can do so either from the Juan Santamaria International Airport located in San Jose or from The Tobias Bolanos Airport located in Pavas.It is important to note that if one is taking a helicopter ride they still have to show a passport or identification and residency even though the flight is not leaving Costa Rica...

Flights in helicopter are significantly more expensive than driving or taking a bus and they are even a little more expensive than charter flights.  A flight in a helicopter could run between $900 and $1500 per hour! Taking a helicopter ride is an exciting and beautiful experience and is very fast to get around. A flight in a helicopter in Costa Rica is an unforgettable experience and well worth it.

Also, helicopters can land just about anywhere and are permitted to land as long as they have authorization from the owner of the land they are landing on. Many large hotels and major real estate developments have helipads to receive their clients.

If leaving from Juan Santamaria use a company called Aero Costa Sol.

If leaving from Tobias Bolanos use Aerobell, Helisa, Helicopteros Turisticos Tropicales and Pitts Aviation and AENSA (Academia de Ensenanza Aeronautica)

San Jose, Costa Rica
