Great hotel if you can handle the street noise.
"I was expecting much worse for the cheap price, but the hotel was very decent. It was clean, had a large bed, a TV, wifi, and AC - amenities that are not always included in a Costa Rican's hotel. Breakfast was poor though. The best part - and the worst - was the location, right on Avenida Central. ..."

Cheap flights from Los Angeles to San Jose

No matter the reason for traveling from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to San Jose, Costa Rica, you’ll be in for an adventure. Once you arrive, rent a car, and then take a drive out to the Orosi River Valley, until you adjust to the local climate. This beautiful area is a four-hour drive from the city but is a great way to pass the time.

Key Facts

San Jose is home to the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum and is a history buff’s dream, which is called the Museo del Oro Precolombino, which hosts more than 1600 artifacts of gold from as early as 500 AD. The pieces within this collection are invaluable, including the Media Escudo and El Guerrero. The Museo Numismatico is found in the same building, and is home to treasures from as early as 1236. The “Casa de Moneda” display explores the evolution of currency within Costa Rica.

Hints and Tips

Flights from Los Angeles to Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) usually take eight and a half hours, so you'll be more than ready to stretch your legs once you arrive. A visit to the Museo Nacional del Jade or the Pueblo Antiguo can help you work out the after-flight kinks, while you immerse yourself in the culture and history of this beautiful country.

*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
