Frequently asked questions

    • What time shouldI I arrive on Day 1?

      You can arrive at any time on the first day because it is just an arrival day.

    • What are the National Geographic Tours with G Adventures?

      The National Geographic tours of G Adventures are designed to take you deeper into the cultures and habitats of the places they explore. They offer more inclusions, greater hands-on exploration, interactions with local experts, and the freedom to roam.

    • I will be flying from the uk and need to know which airport to travel to, as there appear to be 2 airports.

      There are two international airports, however as your trip starts and ends in San Jose, so Juan Santamaría International Airport (JSO) is the airport you are after.

      It is the main International airport for the San Jose region. The other is way up in the north.
