I paid for an aisle seat and found I was bumped to the middle seat. No entertainment at all, bathroom was so tiny, a woman had a hard time in there. Seems it was considered for men only. This was my first time on Alaska airlines. I don’t think I want to fly on Alaska Airlines again.

If you need a change of scenery from the busy streets and cool climate of New York City, book a flight to beautiful Costa Rica for an unforgettable tropical getaway.

Find your cheap flight from New York City to Costa Rica, and start planning your vacation today.

How long is the flight from New York City to Costa Rica?

A direct flight from New York City to San Jose lasts around five hours, and a flight to Liberia is about the same. Keep in mind that your trip can get a few hours longer if you book a flight with a connection in another city.

Which airlines operate flights from New York to Costa Rica?

You can find direct flights to Costa Rica from next-door Newark via United Airlines, although other major airlines such as American, Delta, jetBlue and Aeromexico offer flights from New York City with a single layover.

How frequent are flights between New York City and Costa Rica?

Direct flights to Costa Rica from John F. Kennedy International Airport are hard to come by, but Newark usually offers at least one direct flight per day and more frequent flights on weekends.

Which airports serve New York City to Costa Rica?

John F. Kennedy International Airport is New York's major airport handling international flights, but you can find more direct flight deals from neighboring Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.
