Costa Rica’s favorite national airline keeps on growing, this week adding a daily flight to Panama’s Bocas del Toro province in the Caribbean. The one-hour flight leaves daily at 1 p.m. from Pavas’ Tobias Bolaños International Airport, five miles west of downtown San José. Returning from Bocas del Toro, Nature Air offers two flights, one to San José, a second to Quepos on the central Pacific coast. Both return flights depart at 3:30 p.m.
Travelers to Bocas del Toro should remember to budget an extra $26 for Costa Rica’s international departure fee, plus a $15 departure fee charged at the Nature Air check-in desk at the Bocas del Toro airport.
