Flights have resumed between Liberia (Costa Rica) and nine cities in the United States and Canada.

The Daniel Oderberg Kuiros International Airport (LIR), which serves the city of Liberia in Costa Rica, was acquired in November with nearly a dozen new flights from the United States and Canada.

Located in the province of Guanacoste, Liberia is one of the largest tourist destinations in Costa Rica, where Pacific beaches, national parks and eco-tourism are mainly sought after by American and Canadian tourists.

This boom in post-epidemic North American tourists has encouraged companies to restart their flights to Costa Rica and add new connections, and thanks to the easing of health regulations.
