Starting Dec. 1, travelers to Costa Rica can fly from San Jose and the Central Valley to the Caribbean port city of Limon on daily flights with the Costa Rican airline Nature Air. Flights depart from the Juan Santamaria International Airport by San Jose at 5:50 a.m., and arrive to the Limon airport at 6:20 a.m. Return flights depart Limon daily at 6:30 a.m. and arrive to San Jose at 7:25 a.m., with a quick stop at Tortuguero in the northern Caribbean on the way.
Up until now, travelers have only had the option to get to the Costa Rica Caribbean Coast (unless visiting Tortuguero) by driving Route 32 – a four-hour drive from San Jose that includes the often treacherous journey through the mountains of the Braulio Carrillo National Park.
In honor of the new flight to Limon, Hotel Le Caméléon by Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica is offering a new vacation package, “Le Caméléon Gives You Wings.” Valid from Dec. 1, 2014, to Mar. 27, 2015, the three-night vacation package includes round-trip flights on Nature Air between San Jose and Limon, ground transfers between the Limon airport and the hotel, three nights’ accommodation at Hotel Le Caméléon, breakfast daily, lunch on the first day, welcome cocktail, VIP access to the La Sula Sea Lounge, and a tour to the Jaguar Rescue Center.
“Now it will be so much easier for our guests to get from the Central Valley to Hotel Le Caméléon,” said Roger Sans Feliu, Reservations Manager at Hotel Le Caméléon by Puerto Viejo. “It is only a 30-minute flight and another 30 minutes to drive from Limon to the hotel. It is now easier and more comfortable to get to Puerto Viejo, and the views are really great on the flight from San Jose to Limon!”
Hip, modern and upscale, the Costa Rica boutique hotel faces one of the area’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Cocles. Le Caméléon features ultra-chic rooms, beautiful tropical architecture, and lush jungle gardens. The elegant Le Numu Restaurant & Bar is one of the area’s top restaurants; and the La Sula Sea Lounge beach club is the place to hang out by the shore and meet friends for a cool drink or a light meal.
