Tamarindo Airport Remains Closed with Flights Being Rerouted to Liberia


Tamarindo airport remains closed after it was shut down in May of this year due to runway safety concerns. Initially, the Hotel Diria Beach Resort Group gave June 30th, 2014 as a re-opening date, but it remains closed. Nature Air and Sansa flights continue to be re-routed to Liberia’s Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport.


Despite requests, representatives from the Tamarindo Airport were unavailable for comment.


On July 28th 2014, reported that government officials visited Reserva Conchal to inspect a piece of property that could be used as an alternative landing strip for the area. No official word on the outcome of the visit was reported.
