Jacó will be only 35 minutes away from Costa Rica’s largest airport!
Aside from its 100 years of political stability and constant economic growth, Costa Rica appeals to vacationers because it is bestowed with an exquisite array of biological diversity, contrasting landscapes and environmental attractions like misty cloud forests, majestic volcanoes, picturesque trails, wild and untamed rivers, pristine beaches and so much more. Investors are lured to Costa Rica because of its efficient productivity in high-end technology, top-quality technical education, open investment and trade policies, and its well-educated populace.
Costa Rica now has two major airports in Costa Rica catering to the needs of international travelers: the first is the Juan Santamaría Airport in Alajuela just north of San José; the second is the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport about 12 kilometers west of the city of Liberia in the province of Guanacaste. These two airports were able to handle and manage international flights, however, due to the increasing number of medical, leisure and business travelers going to and from Costa Rica, the need for a bigger airport became apparent To keep up with the surge of tourism, the Costa Rican government has decided to build a new international airport in Orotina 30 minutes west of San José; it is scheduled to become operational by 2025, although reliable sources say it will be completed by 2018 to meet the increasing tourism and trade demand. The Orotina airport is of major importance for economic development as it is centrally located and is connected to many arteries that offer easy access to different parts of the country. With this in mind, one can already envision tourists traveling from the new airport directly to the beaches along the Central Pacific coast. Jacó will shortly be only 35 minutes away from Costa Rica’s largest airport.
Once completed, the Orotina International Airport will exponentially increase international access to the country, encouraging more infrastructure improvement and real estate development. When the Liberia airport opened in 2002, the province of Guanacaste experienced the country’s largest increase in infrastructure and land development, tourism rate and real estate sales. The Orotina International Airport is expected to have a similar significant impact on the country’s tourism industry and economy, especially the Jacó area, and fuel the already steadily growing real estate demand making it the hottest commodity in all of Central America.
