Local Flights to Santa Teresa
Welcome to “TMU” Tambor Regional Airport, Costa Rica
A quick 20 minute flight is the perfect way to begin your tropical vacation on our mystical and magical Nicoya Peninsula. The most direct and convenient option for arriving to Santa Teresa is flying from SJO/San Jose Int’l airport to TMU/Tambor Regional Airport, that’s our closest airport to the Red Palm Villas, it’s a 20 minute flight from SJO and a short drive from TMU to our beachfront property.
TMU is a well maintained runway on the edge of the jungle next to the beach. There is no facility or structure there, no rental car agencies, no taxi stands as well. Any services you might desire/require, it’s best to make them in advance, we’re happy to assist.
From SJO you can fly with Sansa Regional Airline’s, they operate from the same terminal, one way flights run $46-$88 per person plus taxes, or we can help you to arrange a VIP Private Charter air transfer also from SJO terminal, the cost for the Private Charter is $490 usd one way for 1-4 passengers in a single prop airplane, and $675 usd for up to 6 guests in a twin prop airplane. It’s a short 20 minute flight crossing a beautiful emerald turquoise gulf/bay to our magical mystical peninsula.
Flights are also available from Liberia with Sansa, Nature Air or via Private Charter, please keep in mind though, there are no direct flights from LIR into TMU/Tambor, the flight would either originate in SJO or you would have to make a stop and change of aircraft in SJO for TMU.
We also offer spectacular scenic Helicopter Transfers, door to door services start at $1,800 for 1-3 passengers and up, one way, the air time is 50 minutes of gorgeous sights and ends with landing in our private beachfront paradise. Call/ask for a current price quote.
