Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, their flights are far from your average mile-high experience. The views from the over-sized vistaliner windows on our twin otters are not to be missed. They'll have you seeing things differently at 10,000 feet up in the sky. have you ever witnessed the crater of an active volcano from a bird's eye perspective, or spotted towering waterfalls in the heart of the jungle, perhaps never seen before from the ground? Why spend long hours on costa rica's poor and lengthy road system when you could have your feet in the ocean in under an hour?

Their domestic flights are a perfect and efficient alternative - they are sky high tours en route to your next destination, revealing a side of costa rica that few people ever see. and don't forget, on central america's fastest growing airline.
